About Us

Why GR8FR8?

Located in beautiful Phoenix, AZ, GR8FR8 Logistics is a family-owned business that was created by our founders to break the cycle of customers feeling like a number. After working in the industry for over 25 years and watching service erosion with the expansion of a multi billion dollar outfit, we created this company to allow our customers to get the service they need and deserve while maintaining the price points. By keeping our overhead low, we remain competitive in our rates, and make sure that each and every shipment is handled with a personal touch. Customers are not numbers to us, they truly mean the world, and if not for them, we wouldn't be where we are today.

Your shipment matters!!! We'll take GR8 care of your FR8!!!
