Small Business Spotlight: CPM Logistics
The CPM Logistics team has over 70 years of experience in the fields of Program, Construction and Project Management with specific emphasis on Small Businesses working on publicly-funded projects.
CPM logistics is a small, woman owned business that focuses on providing support to small contractors in the transporta-tion industry. Started in early 2013, Abbigail Brown realized that there was a better way to approach how small contrac-tors were utilized on transportation and infrastructure projects. Because these companies are scarce, and have limited re-sources, CPM began its quest to learn the market’s best prac-tices and to implement those strategies to bring up the entire industry as a whole.
