How we came up with the company name is the best place to start our story…
As the saying goes, it seems just like yesterday when we bought our first truck back in February 1988. It was a used Freightliner, blue in color, with a white stripe running down the side that looked like an arrow. To this day that arrow represents our clear direction. The arrow always moves forward and sets our focus on the future and the new challenges that lay ahead.
The quality of our service, hard work, and dedication of our team generated rapid growth in 2004. We grew from a “mom-and-pop shop” in Southern California, and opened our second terminal in Secaucus New Jersey. This expansion gave us the leverage to handle coast-to-coast business. Our business continued to expand and allowed us to open our third terminal in Stockton, CA, and we quickly followed up with satellite consolidation centers in Seattle, WA and Chicago, IL.
In 2010, we strategically evaluated our terminal location in the Southern California market. For continued growth, the data supported a move from Ontario, CA to the heart of Los Angeles, and we settled in Montebello, CA. We have since experienced rapid growth in Los Angeles even through a fluctuating economy.
In 2013, our newest terminals were opened in Chicago, IL and Portland, OR. This move allowed us to seize the opportunity to grow our service into Illinois and in the Pacific Northwest.
