D.T. Gruelle Specialty Logistics is the culmination of achievement of over a quarter century in the logistics business. Boutique Logistics is what we have been able to create and offer to our clients since 1983. We have been at the forefront of logistics development and international market expansion. Being recognized in the mid 1990’s for having one of the Pennsylvanian’s best export and 3PL logistics operations and effectively providing Just-In-Time solutions from the mid 1980s, prior to the mass appeal and understanding of said systems.
Today, as in our founding days, we look at the logistics and supply chain as the fiber which connects many various business units within your organization and the direct conduit to your client. To most shipping companies a finance or R&D department is only involved in logistics when it is time for a problem or payment. On the contrary our system invites as many people and departments to the discussion table to receive the most diverse amounts of data which we can use to process into valuable business information to achieve logistics success.
Our clients must be competitive in global markets and deal with many unpleasant realities in these markets; D.T. Gruelle Boutique Logistics provides proactive solutions! We have had a philosophy from our founding days and still stand by it today: Turning today’s adversity into tomorrow’s opportunity!

Our risk analysis can help in development of processes and procedures that follow the U.S. Customs - Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) guidelines. Participation in the C-TPAT program will benefit importers, exporters, depot operators, transportation providers, and manufacturers involved in global logistics by enabling them to attain the most secure, cost effective, and efficient supply chain processes. U.S. Customs states that participation in the program will result in quicker cargo releases on arrival, and far fewer examinations of containerized cargo. We are currently working with numerous clients and utilizing C-TPAT and we can provide your organization with a customized consultation today!
We take pride in the fact that we have a 99.995% success ratio in regards to audits. Simply put, our clients do not get audited! We really do feel that prevention is the best solution and our team proactively seeks out the problems and risks associated with your logistics operations. As a D.T. Gruelle Client this is an ongoing process, we often ask to see how a client is classifying cargo and audit entries to insure compliance and maximum protection.
On site visits, continual research, and multiple stop and verification points during shipment process is just a few of the ways how D.T. Gruelle Boutique Logistics keeps you ahead of the competition. Our auditing can be as simple or involved as the client needs or requests. Some of our most comprehensive audits discovered massive classification error and millions of US Dollars worth of waste in logistics errors and discrepancies. Our most rewarding audits occur when we review a current client and discover zero errors or issues and indeed are verified by US Customs and Border protection.
If we find an issue, we do not simply send you a recommendation, but assist with active cooperation to insure that your organization avoids costly fines, loss of client confidence, and harsh legal ramifications.
