amerijet coverAmerijet International Inc. has spent four decades developing an environment where people truly care. “Everyone cares about each other and the service we provide to our customers,” Senior Vice President of Business Development Pamela Rollins asserts. “We all work hard and we have a can-do attitude.”

Ever since RJW Transport became an official consolidator for Walmart, business has been growing at an unstoppable rate. In 2013, the Illinois-based logistics company had about 75,000 square feet of warehouse space. Two years later, RJW has grown to 550,000 square feet and expects to top $100 million in revenue this year. “In 2015, we’re exploding right now,” RJW President Kevin Williamson says.

A successful partnership with Walmart and their vendors has opened opportunities for RJW to provide retail consolidation services for other top-25 retailers such as Kroger, Walgreens and CVS Pharmacy, though RJW does not act as an official consolidator for those retail chains. “We have honed down a good process, a good program that saves those retailers money,” Williamson says.

North Americans are so used to having all types of food available at their local grocery stores that they do not really think much about the people who transport it there. But that is not the case at Nagle. “We place a tremendous value on our skilled over-the-road and local truck drivers,” President and CEO Ed Nagle emphasizes. “We have a tremendous amount of respect for them. Unfortunately, our society doesn’t value truck drivers – they’re taken for granted – and you will never see a more honorable group of individuals.

“A truck driver doesn’t leave on Christmas morning because it just sounded like a good idea,” he continues. “A truck driver doesn’t miss his children’s baseball games because he doesn’t like his family. A truck driver is always doing something for someone. He’s doing it for a shipper, he’s doing it for a receiver, he’s doing it for a dispatcher, but he is always doing something for someone other than himself.”
