To forward its services, LeSaint has many key alliances that allow the company to give comprehensive logistics solutions. Scanwell Logistics and LeSaint are a strategic alliance that combines North American domestic distribution capabilities with an extensive international worldwide logistics network and technology. LeSaint along with Royal Chemical, a chemical compounder, contract manufacturer and toll blender, provides a closed loop chemical solution, combining the capabilities of manufacturing, warehousing, inventory fulfilment and transportation.

To further expand and improve its chemical supply chain services, LeSaint had acquired Chemical Logistics, a third party provider of warehouse and transportation to manufacturers and distributors of chemical products. With a wide range of chemicals requiring special handling with warehousing and transportation, the coupled service offerings of the two companies and robust technologies provided by LeSaint proves to be imperative for clients in daily operations of distribution.
