History of ADCO

Delivering Peace of mind
When I started ADCO I had one goal in mind - to move freight more effectively than anyone else. I wanted my service to be unquestioningly reliable, while at the same time I needed to be cost effective for my clients. Today I believe that I offer highly effective, cost competitive and reliable solutions to customers who are serious about holding minimum inventories, and meeting stringent deadlines.
Before I started ADCO, I literally got my experience in the driver's seat - as a local courier driver. As a consequence, in a very real sense I know the pressures my drivers and dispatchers experience every day. I also know what is possible, and what really does not work.
Today I have all the sophistication that modern technology has to offer, from up-to-the-minute satellite tracking and tracing, a fully computerized dispatch operation and full EDI compliance.
ADCO is ISO 9001-2008 certified. While growing this company from the ground up it taught me that a successful company needs proper controls in place.
I run a tight "hands on" operation. Like any entrepreneur, I have faced many challenges but with tight controls, proper industry accredited procedures and having the right people in place, Adco has become the successful company that it is today. We never stop learning and improving. It is by this that we can adapt to the sophisticated requirements of an ever more complex client base. I believe though that I have met and continue to meet the challenges.
