Doug Abel, CEO:

Raised on a dairy farm in northeast Ohio, Doug adopted the values of hard work and a farmer’s ingenuity from a young age. At age 18, he modeled that same entrepreneurial spirit found on the farm into his own business. This effectively launched a successful career in the temperature controlled transportation industry and has been his calling for the past 40 years.

With one truck and a sense of purpose, Doug effectively drove his way into a role as partner and eventually led his first business – for 15 years as President. During his tenure, he amassed more than 600 trucks.

These four decades of experience – along with Doug’s unique vision and dedicated work ethic – is what makes Doug and our team successful. We have become one of the most-sought after temperature-controlled transportation services in the nation, and continue to build successful relationships with drivers, customers, and employees.
