The "Heart" Says It All
When you hear our name – "The Match Maker" – you probably don't' think of transportation. More than likely you think of a dating service, especially considering we use a "heart" as our corporate logo. However there is an interesting story behind our name and logo. When the company was established, our owner wanted to convey to carriers and shippers our ability to effectively "match" freight with trucks with personal, reliable service. What better way to get shippers and carriers attention than to use a name and logo that says, "We Are The Match Maker!" Today, we are regarded as one of the industry leaders and pioneers in the transportation industry, and our name and "heart" helped us in this endeavor.
