Our History

In 1980 three roomates in a NY apartment put together their collective efforts, assets, and energy to start a 3 cargo van operation.

 

Around this time the airline industry was deregulated and among many other factors, indigenuous, within New York at this time the freight business proved to be extremely challenging; albeit for carriers and forwarders alike. 

 

Despite the inherent challenges the company continued to grow at an extremely rapid pace and grew to become one the largest and most capable cartage agents serving the tri-state area to this very day.

 

The company was sold to long time employee Joan Ton in 2017 who serves as the company's CEO in the day to day oversight.

 

Today's business climate has it's own unique set of challenges between unfavorable legislation, increased regulation, hightened security concerns, unstable markets, and global financial uncertainty. Our organization levereges our vast resources, knowledge, and abilities to rapidly adapt to these ever changing issues.
