Chipman Relocation & Logistics Acquires Olsen & Fielding Moving Services

 

Chipman Relocation & Logistics, a full-service moving,
storage and logistics company, is pleased to announce the
acquisition of Olsen & Fielding Moving Services in
Sacramento, CA.
Olsen & Fielding provided professional moving solutions to
residential and corporate customers, as well as the U.S.
Department of Defense (DoD). Founded in 1952 under the
name National Transfer and Storage, the company
rebranded as Olsen & Fielding Moving Services in 1988.
“During that time, Olsen & Fielding continued to set

themselves apart from other companies with each customer-
centric relocation they performed,” says Justin Chipman,

President and Chairman of the Board at Chipman Relocation
& Logistics.
“Like Chipman, Olsen and Fielding has a rich history,” he
adds. “Culturally, it’s a synergistic fit for both companies, as
we share common core values and a deep-rooted understanding of operating as a growth-oriented family-
owned business.” The Chipman family looks forward to welcoming the talented members of Olsen & Fielding into
our organization.

Olsen & Fielding will be under the management of industry veteran Edward Melton. Edward will blend the Olsen & Fielding team into his existing 25 person team in the Natomas area of Sacramento.  The combined companies will give Chipman 145,000 sq ft of warehousing in Sacramento and daily capacity of over 50 crews.

 

About Chipman

Chipman Relocation & Logistics began in 1939 when Arthur &
Dorothy Chipman started Chipman Moving & Storage in
Vallejo, California. A multi-generational family business, the
company has continued to expand through the years. Today,
Chipman operates multiple locations throughout the West
Coast, and is a shareholder agent of Unigroup, Inc., the
largest household goods transportation company in North
America.
The acquisition of Olsen and Fielding will provide Chipman
with wide access to one of the most recognizable names in
moving–Mayflower Transit–in the Sacramento
market. Chipman says the acquisition will also allow
Chipman Relocation & Logistics to better serve agent partners
and clients with additional capacity, warehouse space, and
customer facing resources.
“Together, we will make an impact by having a stronger team
with increased capacity, while maintaining the singular goal
of providing our collective customers with a remarkable
experience every step of the way—everyday,” says Justin
Chipman.

42 million Americans struggle to find their next meal.

When most people think about hunger, they think of a starving child in a third-world country. Or perhaps they think of a long line of homeless people waiting outside an inner-city soup kitchen.

The truth is: hunger is a HUGE problem everywhere in the United States, but it’s not always easy to see. In a country known for its wealth and prosperity, 42 million Americans struggle to find their next meal.

The face of hunger has changed. No longer is it just the homeless man on the street reaching out for a helping hand, but every day millions of people are struggling to feed their families. No one is a stranger to the economic hardships of today.

Hunger is all around us. Hunger is not limited to a single demographic or geographic region of the country. It is not a problem only affecting the homeless or the poorest of the poor. Hunger is everywhere, and the numbers are staggering.

As the economy continues to put a strain on our wallets, people are being forced to make extremely difficult decisions. What does hunger look like, you might ask?

  • It is your father-in-law who just got laid off and now struggles to pay his mortgage and put food on the table.
  • It is your elderly neighbor who must choose between buying groceries and heating her home.
  • It is your child’s classmate who goes to school each day without lunch and is too embarrassed to ask for help.

Adults who suffer from hunger live shorter, less healthy, and less happy lives. They are more likely to be obese, more prone to mental illness, and more susceptible to deadly diseases. Hunger is terrible for adults, but it’s so much worse for children.

Hunger and malnourishment go hand-in-hand, and kids who miss out on essential nutrients during their critical years of growth will be dramatically disadvantaged for the remainder of their lives. 1 in 6 American children go to bed hungry each night.

According to the Food Research and Action Center, hungry children have compromised immune systems and are two to four times as likely as nourished children to develop health problems—ranging from the relatively minor to potentially fatal. Childhood hunger also impairs cognitive development. Kids who don’t have enough to eat do worse academically, do worse socially, and risk becoming so impacted—even by only temporary food insecurity—that recovery becomes impossible.

Most people tend to think about hunger during the holiday season. We see a ton of food drives occur right around Thanksgiving. But what happens during the rest of the year? Food insecurity is a year-round issue affecting millions of families and individuals across the country.

The summer months are the most difficult time for our nation’s food banks. During the school year, hungry children get the majority of their daily calories from free or reduced price school lunches. When school is out of session, those calories must come from somewhere else. There are summer meal programs, but over 13 million children face a greater risk of hunger during the summer because those programs are difficult to access and underfunded.

Thankfully, the summer is also the busiest season for the moving industry, so Move For Hunger has a great opportunity to fill the shelves of our communities’ food banks. Move For Hunger works to rescue food from people’s homes that would otherwise be thrown away and get it to local food banks where it’s needed.
