About CalArk - The Wheels of American Business
In 1975, when third party logistics (3PL) meant “truckers moving freight,” CalArk started transportation operations in central Arkansas with three rigs, one lane, and a bold vision. To become the wheels driving American business.
Over the next 40+ years, one California / Arkansas lane became a U.S. domestic service covering 48 states and Mexico. Three trucks turned into a 650-piece fleet. By 2015, annual sales were over $125m – and climbing. And as it expanded, CalArk saw 3PL demands growing beyond trucking - and flexed to meet the demand.
From Wheels to Warehousing
Building on its strengths, CalArk expanded its transportation business, adding warehousing and local distribution services. This created more logistics options for our customers, while enabling CalArk to attract and retain quality drivers.
Expansion into Southeastern U.S.
Extending service operations and expanding our footprint across the southeastern U.S., CalArk doubled in size each of the past four years. This growth is creating greater opportunities for customers in southeastern locations to streamline logistics operations.
Asset Based – Investment Free
While many 3PLs avoid the challenge of asset ownership for complexity, cost, and liability reasons, CalArk thrives on it. One of our key strengths is our asset-based approach to providing warehousing and dedicated delivery. Being free to decide when and how to invest is critical for a 3PL focused on helping customers streamline their logistics processes and reduce costs. Privately held, we enjoy financial stability and strategic flexibility.
