ICL at 30 – Our Origin Story
Since our formation in 1992, ICL Systems has been a leading provider of solutions for transportation and logistics. In our 30th Anniversary series, we look at a comprehensive history of our business, from our origin story in the back bedroom of a beach house in Newport Beach to our future, with the upcoming launch of new products and our global plans.
Advantages of a real-time visibility platform for the automotive outbound logistics

It will now provide carmakers across Europe with a comprehensive range of vehicle logistics management services, including asset tracking, invoice auditing for OEMs, and business analytics.
Leveraging the collective real-world experience of the ICL management team, our solutions are designed from the customer’s perspective.
29 Years of ICL Systems – The Beginning and Plan
Like every great company, ICL started with the vision; to be recognized as the industry leader in product visibility and invoice-auditing solutions throughout the logistics supply chain. The only question we had to ask ourselves is will it work? Leaving our corporate jobs was a huge risk to take for a chance to work at ICL. Later that night, the bound plan in my hand, I repeatedly read through the business plan, and I was sold.
Fast forward 29 years, now an industry leader within Vehicle Logistics Management, all thanks to Patrick’s attention to detail.
