The ubiquitous Life Is Good Company is a New England–based apparel and accessories wholesaler, retailer, and lifestyle brand founded in 1994 and best known for its optimistic T-shirts and hats, many of which feature a smiling stick figure named Jake and the registered trademark “Life is good.” “LIG”, as it’s known for short, is headquartered in Boston with its warehouse located in Hudson, New Hampshire. Much of Life Is Good’s products are manufactured overseas and then shipped to Boston via air (as air freight) or ocean containers (ocean freight). Upon arrival at the Boston port, First Call Trucking & Courier is the carrier responsible for all of their “last leg” shipping, picking up loose pieces or full truckloads and delivering the cargo up to its warehouse in Hudson, New Hampshire.
Life Is Good was founded in 1994 by two brothers selling T-shirts out of their van in Boston. Since then, the company has grown to over 200 employees. Their reach stretches far beyond their Boston roots as they sell their merchandise in over 4,500 stores nationwide and across the globe in 30 additional countries. To this day, the company still embraces it’s family origins, allowing it’s staff to bring their dogs to work, and encouraging employees to bond via the outdoor volleyball court, picnic tables and hammocks on site.
To see their warehouse tucked away in rural New Hampshire is like driving up to what appears to be an adult day camp. Study upon study has proven that happy workers are more productive. Life Is Good has crated an environment encouraging inter-staff bonding and work/life balance. The company’s logo and corporate mantra go hand-in-hand as they embrace the power of optimism.
It is an honor and a privilege that First Call Trucking’s family-founded and operated small company gets to work with Life Is Good’s much larger family-founded and operated company. When you work with or for Life Is Good, life really is good. Actually, it’s great.
