GSC Logistics' Participation in 2007 RILA Conference Serves as Kick Off for Aggressive Growth in 2007

OAKLAND, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 30, 2007 -- GSC Logistics, Inc., the industry's forward-thinking logistics provider, announced that it has wrapped up its participation in RILA's 2007 Logistics Conference in San Diego. Regarded as a premier educational event for retail and consumer product makers' supply chain professionals, nearly 900 executives attended this year's conference. GSC Logistics met with numerous high profile retailers, increasing awareness of their services at the Port of Oakland and throughout northern California.

"GSC Logistics' facility within the Port of Oakland was of great interest to the top 20 retailers in the United States," said Andy Garcia, chairman of the board and executive vice president of GSC. "We had a dialogue with most of these retailers, and are now scheduling visits to our offices as well as our deconsolidation, transloading and overweight container facility within the port."

GSC expects to experience aggressive growth as a result of its exposure at the RILA conference as early as the fourth quarter of 2007. The company also expects to add new deconsolidation programs and transportation/drayage programs within the same timeframe to meet expanded demand.

"The RILA conference put GSC front and center, and was a great boost to our recognition throughout the retail and logistics industry," said Scott E. Taylor, president and CEO. "We expect that our strategic location within the port -- and the cost savings that retailers can achieve by doing business with us -- will attract significant additional growth of our service offerings in the coming year."
