Why an Echelon?

We thought the multifaceted, multidimensional, and multi-dynamic meaning of an echelon typified the level of service we offer. Birds and planes fly best in the half-diamond formation of an echelon because of its maximum utilization of wind resistance. They fly higher, faster, and farther because the shape of the echelon affords them this ability.

Military troops are often arranged in an echelon or in diagonal lines either to the left or right of a central point or command person because of the range of vision and support its shape offers.

An echelon is literally a rung in a ladder, each rung is significant and important because of its position with respect to the others. The middle rung is just as important as the first rung and the last. In our business, it reminds us that we are team players who have a greater goal and purpose which is always higher than our individual selves.
