Paquin has a reputation for managing tough logistical challenges. Last year, Logistec was asked to find a way to export nickel and copper concentrates from an ultra-remote area in northern Quebec that has poor weather, no permanent docks and no local workforce to hire labour from. Her team drew on its problem-solving expertise to get the job done, securing a 10-year contract in the process.
