AAGEX Freight Group President and CEO Mike Williams said the new company is inspired by his vision to advance a business model for logistics entrepreneurs to keep pace in a fast evolving market.

Jacksonville, Fla.-based transportation and logistics firm AAGEX Freight Group, LLC has recently been established, AAGEX Freight Group President and CEO Mike Williams announced. 


The new company will provide full-truckload, flat bed, heavy haul, less-than-truckload, intermodal and expedited transportation services across the United States, Canada and Mexico. 


In addition, AAGEX Freight Group will use the McLeod Software platform including LoadMaster, PowerBroker and DocumentPower. 


According to Williams, the new company is inspired by his vision to advance a business model for logistics entrepreneurs to keep pace in a fast evolving market. 


“For many years, industry analysts predicted a move to consolidation of an otherwise fragmented domestic market of asset based trucking, freight brokers, and third party logistics companies,” Williams said. “Now we are seeing it (consolidation) as some try to capture greater market share with a ‘mega-company’ approach, when in-fact, some of the most talented professionals can deliver excellent service from high performing small and mid-size platforms." "AAGEX (pronounced a-jex) will enable the owners of private trucking and logistics companies to remain competitive with the industry’s largest players, while igniting their entrepreneurialism that makes all the difference," Williams added. 


With nearly 20 years of experience in the logistics industry, Williams has held previous roles including chief operating officer, general council, president and chief executive officer at several logistics and trucking companies with revenues ranging from $30 million to $400 million, according to the company's website.
