A Message from the CEO

My dad bought his first trucking company in the year in which I was born. Trucking is in my blood. When I was in school, I did most jobs at the truck line, from sweeping the floor of the shop to working in dispatch. Although I left the trucking industry after getting out of law school, later serving as a United States Magistrate, I have been working at Admiral Merchants continuously for 20 years now. It's a great company with great employees, great business partners and wonderful customers. I am proud to be associated with every one.


If you want to know about Admiral Merchants and our commitment to you, please review our Strategic Profile. We live by this document. It does not sit in a drawer. It guides each employee of Admiral Merchants every day at work. We have a great team here; we know who we are, what we stand for, and where we are going. If you are an agent or a contractor, I encourage you to check us out with others. If you are a shipper, know that you have the service guarantee of Admiral Merchants that has been our hallmark for over 50 years.


Thanks for considering Admiral Merchants. I know you will not be disappointed.
