About Us

With a storied history beginning in 1928, we’ve been transporting valuable cargo for nearly a century. Our founder originated this business with a single Harley Davidson Motorcycle and now we are the leading ground expedite carrier in the Northeast in addition to servicing all of North America. The longevity of our business can be credited to providing our clients with secure, tracked and compliant logistic services all with a smile. Yet the evolution of 28Frieght, and its subsidiaries, Marks Logistics and TruckCourier, can be attributed to adapting to an ever changing landscape.

Life sciences and biotechnology are our primary specialties. We routinely coordinate the safe and secure delivery of life-saving medical devices, including ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic. However throughout the decades, we’ve continued to expand our offerings. Most recently adding warehousing and temperature-controlled transportation to our suite of services.

Since our inception, we are dedicated to providing reliable, fast delivery of your most precious shipments, even under the most challenging circumstances. For more information, you can download our Resource Kit here.
