Learn about newly launched Velocity Transport, which aims to be a first-class freight brokerage company with a principled approach and quality service.

Velocity Freight Transport Inc (Velocity Transport), a freight brokerage company dedicated to providing significant value to both shippers and carriers, has been launched. Led by industry veterans Ross Grier, John Lower, Aaron Keister and Seth Arnoux, Velocity Transport aims to be a first-class freight brokerage company known for its principled approach and quality of service.

The launch of Velocity Transport comes at a time when the supply chain industry is in need of fresh thinking and an updated business model to enable carriers and shippers to meet deadlines, growth goals and retain a competitive edge. To help with this, Velocity Transport will offer competitive pricing, relentless service, cutting-edge technology and comprehensive freight solutions.

With its headquarters and operations management stationed in Plano TX, Velocity Transport plans to serve clients across the United States, and provide refrigerated, flatbed, intermodal, LTL, van and expedited freight offerings.

“With today’s constant shifts in consumption trends and transportation regulations, supply chain leaders in all industries are facing more volatility and challenges than ever before. We’re launching Velocity Transport to bring comprehensive freight solutions to the market and deliver a level of service that will raise the bar on the freight brokerage industry overall,” said John Lower, vice-president of Velocity Transport.

The company is modeling its core values after those held by its parent, McLane Company Inc, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway and a distributor to the grocery and foodservice industries. Velocity Transport is able to provide the speed and capabilities of a large brokerage house by leveraging McLane’s financial backing and industry expertise while still prioritizing the development of authentic relationships with carriers, customers, team members and stakeholders.
