Welcome to the Logistics Bureau Group website.

All the companies that make up the Logistics Bureau Group share a common purpose.

Inspiring People and Businesses to Change their World

This is what gets us out of bed everyday and inspires us to do the best we can for our clients and our staff, rather like the girl in the Star Fish story.  Do you know that story?

Below is the adapted version as used by the Starfish Charity.


An old man had a habit of early morning walks on the beach. One day, after a storm, he saw a human figure in the distance moving like a dancer. As he came closer he saw that it was a young woman and she was not dancing but was reaching down to the sand, picking up a starfish and very gently throwing them into the ocean.

“Young lady,” he asked, “Why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?”

“The sun is up, and the tide is going out, and if I do not throw them in they will die.”

“But young lady, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it? You cannot possibly make a difference.”

The young woman listened politely, paused and then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves, saying, “It made a difference for that one.”

The old man looked at the young woman inquisitively and thought about what she had done. Inspired, he joined her in throwing starfish back into the sea. Soon others joined, and all the starfish were saved.
