RJW Logistics was founded by Ron Williamson back in 1981. With a double major in Transportation Management and Business Administration, Ron graduated from Elmhurst College and gained experience as a Transportation Manager for over 18 years for a number of companies, including Continental Can Company, Ozite Corp, American Colloid Co, and Fearn Food, a Kellogg's subsidiary. Ron also earned a diploma from the College of Advanced Traffic in Chicago. Both degrees were earned over 12 years of evening school while he worked full time in the private sector.
With that background and with an entrepreneurial spirit, Ron decided to start his own logistics company. Congress de-regulated the transportation industry back in 1980. Logistics licenses were much easier to obtain under deregulation, and so he applied and received what then was called "an ICC License" to broker freight anywhere within the United States.
With only $12,000 in the bank, 4 small children and a wife as a stay-at-home mom (who wouldn't with 4 kids, ages 5, 7, 9 and 11!!), Ron began the incredibly arduous task of building a business from scratch. Those early years often involved 12 to 16 hour work days---but the passion to succeed, and provide a livable income for his young family, made the effort worth it. Both Ron and his wife Jean are strong believers in God, and they prayed early and often for their fledgling business.
With the help of wonderful team members who came along over the years, RJW Logistics Inc. established itself as a growing, innovative company. As RJW began this period of growth, the Logistics business flourished not only in the Chicago market where RJW is domiciled, but also nationwide.
In 1990, because of the synergies that being an asset based carrier provides, Ron established RJW Transport Inc. as a contract carrier. Today, it boasts a combination of over 150+ tractors and 350+ trailers to meet the needs of shippers all over the country. With our staff of 100 office/warehouse personnel providing customer friendly services to our clients, RJW is poised for ever greater growth.
RJW Transport has a strong commitment to safety and looks to hire the safest and best company drivers in the industry. Our company drivers are responsible for driving safely and providing great customer service.
