Company History
building the base business

Mystic Logistics provides transportation support services to companies seeking to optimize their channel management practices and leverage logistics as a competitive advantage. By channel management we refer to value chain or channel of distribution for various industry sectors.

building the base business

Following years of experience in transportation support, distribution management, and operations at Trans-ADVO, Harte Hanks, and Yellow Freight Systems, Chairman Samuel J. Campbell founded Mystic Transport Services, Inc. in 1989. Mystic's directive was to provide inbound and outbound logistics support to large retailers, direct marketing firms, manufacturers, and financial institutions. The freight commodities handled included direct mail piece components, time-sensitive bulk mail, product samples, newspaper free-standing inserts, consumer goods, and raw materials. Over the years, Mystic built a leading reputation for timely and economical transportation of material from its clients' production and printing facilities to newspapers and postal facilities nationwide. Mystic now transports consumer goods, samples, and raw materials as well.

evolving into media and print services

In 1993, Mr. Campbell identified an opportunity to expand Mystic's business further into the direct marketing sector by implementing a postal drop ship program to take advantage of the USPS drop ship program initiated in February, 1991. Many of Mystic's clients produced mail that was not cost-effective for direct shipping because it was either too lightweight, small in volume, or both. By combining the lightweight mail with other outbound products, Mystic enabled its clients to achieve significant postal discounts by drop shipping, which allowed them to pay lower up-front postal costs and realize a net savings after paying for transportation to the destination postal facilities.

sharpening the saw

As the program grew and became more sophisticated, Mr. Campbell established Complete and Accurate Mail (CAM) logistics in late 1996 as an operating subsidiary of Mystic Holdings, Inc. The mail management focus is to provide consolidation drop ship services, including warehousing and redistribution of LTL shipments when necessary. Mystic's mail logistics service continues to be in the forefront of innovation.
