Industry veterans Ross Grier, John Lower, Aaron Keister and Seth Arnoux launched Velocity Freight Transport, Inc., a Plano, Texas-based freight brokerage company.
Velocity Transport, a division of McLane Co., Inc., a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, will provide refrigerated, flatbed, intermodal, LTL, van and expedited freight offerings nationwide.
“With today’s constant shifts in consumption trends and transportation regulations, supply chain leaders in all industries are facing more volatility and challenges than ever before. We’re launching Velocity Transport to bring comprehensive freight solutions to the market, and deliver a level of service that will raise the bar on the freight brokerage industry overall,” says Lower, vice president.
One example of the investment being made is the surety bond held by Velocity Transport, which is more than three times the regulatory requirement.
“We believe this is consistent with our core values of integrity and service, and it’s an important sign of our commitment to this business and our financial strength,” says Grier, president.
“Our entrepreneurial spirit, commitment to excellence and collaborative approach will enable the Velocity Transport team to remain agile and flexible when delivering solutions. We look forward to providing an exceptional experience to the shippers and carriers in our rapidly evolving marketplace,” Lower adds.
