357 Hemp Logistics (357), a trusted leader in global hemp transportation, has appointed Jeremy Powers, a 20-year logistics industry serial entrepreneur and executive, as Strategic Advisor for the company. Powers will further increase the depth and breadth of 357’s leadership team, and spearhead key strategies that will set 357 apart in the emerging hemp logistics industry.
The 357 team believes in disrupting the status quo by significantly raising the bar for transparency, performance and customer satisfaction. With 357’s crosshairs set on superior customer service, 357 is continuously adding features, benefits and services no other competitors offer to attract and retain the highest quality employees, carriers and partners to ensure customer satisfaction. Powers has exemplified that perfectly in every company he has led. We plan to implement his robust logistics experience and network into our system and look forward to working with him to ensure 357 is the gold standard in the logistics industry.
Powers’ 20 year logistics industry career spans positions ranging from freight operations, sales, marketing/PR, and executive level management with a global freight forwarder. Powers has demonstrated a proven ability to open doors, establish new customers, and, most importantly, disrupt the status quo. He has built strong long-term customer loyalty with a broad range of clients from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies, venture capital firms and everything in between.
In 2014 Powers founded LGS Group, an independent logistics sales agency and consulting firm which focuses on addressing the needs of air cargo shippers and shippers of time-sensitive and high-value commodities, with a focus on commodities such as temperature-controlled food, pharmaceuticals, and electronics containing sensitive data. Using his experience, Powers helps clients navigate through complicated regulation often associated with these commodities such as FDA, USDA, TSA and International Customs Clearance. In 2017 Powers co-founded Hangar A, a logistics technology company that has developed the most advanced digital air logistics platform on the market today. It is currently being used by some of the top air cargo shippers in the United States.
357 Hemp Logistics, a division of The 357 Company, is setting the standard of excellence for hemp logistics centered around compliant standard operating procedures. Headquartered in Illinois, 357’s leadership team collectively has over 50 years of transportation, logistics, medical device, and supply chain management experience, in addition to developing operational processes and procedures for the highly regulated medical cannabis and restaurant home delivery industries. 357’s seamless execution is in large part due to establishing relationships and intel gathering with state and federal officials and law enforcement to ensure their partners’ valuable shipments meet the latest laws and license requirements and are compliant from origin to final destination.
357 only transports hemp products below 0.3% total THC – outlined in the USDA interim final rule.
