What is the GKM Wisconsin TEU Intermodal Circuitous Platform?
Researched for two years, written in 2012 and piloted in 2014; the Wisconsin Platform is the most sustainable solution for problems related to servicing import and export TEUs for companies in Wisconsin.

Perfected by GKM Wisconsin Global Supply Chain, LLC, which is one of the world’s preeminent experts in managing TEUs; the Platform is a sustainable solution for importers and exporters because it uses integrated equity analytics that create linear and non-linear substrates.

GKM Wisconsin has worked with companies in Wisconsin since 2015 and sponsored dozens of information sessions throughout the state. The goal of the Wisconsin Platform presentations is to allow manufacturers and producers to hear from users about solutions they integrated to better manage import and export supply chains. Information sessions are just that; no sales or marketing occurs and only manufacturers and producers can attend.
Hear what others are saying about the Wisconsin Platform:
“Innovative problem solving using analytical methods is the most ‘in-demand’ skill I hear about from our employer partners. Given the large base of manufacturers in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Platform is a great example of the application of this skill in a context that is particularly relevant to the state.”
–Jake Dean, Director, Grainger Center for Supply Chain Management, University of Wisconsin School of Business
“The Platform provides value by allowing me to manage from the tower. My company uses the Platform to unload floor loaded containers and palletize by PO and product type. This saves our dock a lot of time. My containers are pulled from the rail ramp timely, avoiding any demurrage fees.”
–Andrew Houtz, Transportation Director, School Specialties
“The platform has allowed us to streamline our logistics process. We went from moving freight daily to a consolidated freight shipment once a week saving considerable time and expense also allowing us to focus on other areas lacking attention prior to us onboarding. It has been everything advertised to us and more.”
–Kevin Brauer, Logistics Manager, BTG IPI, LLC
Our 450,000+ square-foot International TEU processing complex in Joliet, Illinois recovers TEUs, processes and prepares them for transit to GKM Wisconsin Platform clients based on their load specifications and priority.
