THE AMERIFREIGHT STORY
AmeriFreight is a family-run trucking business based in Bensenville, IL, with a second location in South Plainfield, NJ. We specialize in long-haul FTL deliveries across the continental United States and parts of Canada, but also provide other related services in the logistics industry, including brokerage and expedited deliveries.
Our story began in 2003, when the Valnev family immigrated to the Chicago area from Bulgaria. Noticing an opportunity in the trucking logistics industry, we founded AmeriFreight Systems LLC in 2006, naming the company after the country that afforded us the opportunity to start the company in the first place.
We started with just 15 tractors and trailers in 2006, doubled the fleet to 30 in 2007, tripled it to 90 in 2008 and, by the end of 2009, had a total of 160 leased and operator-owned vehicles.
Today, after over a decade spent providing high-value services at competitive rates, our fleet is now numbered over 500, and, like our company overall, it continues to grow.
Even as the industry declines, we continue to leverage hard work and customer loyalty in order to generate double-digit gains year after year. Currently, we are expanding operations, investing in new technology and are positioned to remain one of the leading family-run trucking logistics businesses in Chicago, if not the entire United States.
Many things have changed over the years, but we still remain as committed to hard work today as we were in 2006 and look forward to helping you deliver your freight.
