About Colonial Freight

From its beginning in 1943 as a small, intrastate, Alabama trucking operation to the national, multi-service transportation company of today, Colonial Freight Systems, Inc., has maintained the same philosophy of innovative service at competitive prices. In 1950, operating as Colonial & Pacific Frigidways and serving the emerging frozen food industry, C. E. McBride, the company's founder, applied with the I. C. C. for transcontinental authority - the first motor carrier application of its kind. Colonial now holds both contract and common carrier nationwide authority. Colonial pioneered the use of a full on-line computer system that provides shipment tracking, and pick-up and delivery information. This information is available to customers 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Major companies have relied on Colonial to meet their transportation needs for 72 years. They remain customers because of Colonial's quality, efficient, dependable service.

Our mission: To maintain a working partnership between our owner-operators and our employees that provides safe, courteous, quality service to our customers and their associates.

Company Values:

Superior Service
Service is the cornerstone of being an effective partner to our customers. Each customer should feel as though they are our only customer and that we are a vital and effective extension of their business.

Respect for Each Individual
Our people are important, not only as contributors to our success, but as human beings. We will recognize and treat them with respect.

Continuous Quest for Excellence
We are determined to be the best, both as a company and as individuals. We vow never to be satisfied with our current performance and to continually seek improvement.

Uncompromising Integrity
Our actions should set the standard for high ethical and legal principles. We will not engage in, or support, any act that is marginally inappropriate.

Continuous Growth
We will encourage any growth opportunities that open new doors for our customers and our people, without compromising the excellence of our existing operations.
