Advance Transportation Systems, Inc. (ATS Logistics) is a leading, family-owned logistics and supply chain solutions provider that was founded 43 years ago in Cincinnati, Ohio. We have been serving customers for over four decades with reliable and efficient transportation solutions tailored to meet the needs of a wide range of industries. With over 60 employees spread throughout different cities and states, we have established ourselves as a trusted partner for businesses of all sizes.
ATS Logistics was founded in 1980 by Bo Wyenandt, who started the company with just a few trucks and a vision to provide high-quality logistics services throughout the Midwest. Over the years, ATS transitioned away from being an asset-based company to a truckload brokerage and third-party logistics company providing truck coordination to transport freight from point A to point B across the United States. In 2001, Bo’s son, Jim, took over with a goal to build upon on the legacy and success his father created. Jim took over as president and quickly expanded the ATS portfolio from solely offering full truckload transportation to include less-than-full truckloads, intermodal shipping, expedited, air, and ocean transportation solutions.
When it comes to growth, ATS has expanded at our own pace and with a purpose. Over the past decade, the company has averaged 20% year-over-year increases in profit; employee count has gone from 10 to over 60, and we recently moved our headquarters to Sharonville, into 17,000 square feet of modern office space that will be able to house well over 100 individuals. From our vantage point, every new obstacle that comes our way creates an opportunity for improvement, innovation and organizational restructuring.
While we do attribute our success to the right service offerings, technology and processes, the most important element of ATS is the people. ATS was built on core principles of tradition, opportunity, ingenuity, trust, passion and purpose. These principles were instilled in our culture back in 1980 and hold true here in 2023. As a people-first company, we understand providing our employees (our “work family”) with opportunity and appreciation is a top priority. ATS is dedicated to creating an environment that fosters creativity, teamwork and continuous improvement, but ultimately, we know happy employees lead to happy customers and overall company success.
We’ve built our business on the motto that “service is our only product.” Our competitive advantage lies in our team of experienced professionals committed to providing exceptional customer service, timely delivery and fair pricing while maintaining the highest standards of safety and compliance. Our team is available 24/7 to answer questions, provide support and coordinate customized shipping for all freight needs. Our customers appreciate the way ATS pairs their professional expertise with industry-leading technology, enabling us to offer a turnkey supply chain solution for clients.
Pairing our commitment to customer service with a global network of partners, ATS Logistics is well-equipped to meet the logistics needs of businesses across a wide spectrum of industries.
