Grand Rapids logistics

Powell is part of the supply chain for organizations who require transport logistics in the Grand Rapids area and beyond. The large Atlas® ground fleet capacity and 600 warehousing network locations in North American allows us to reach seamlessly to most corners of the United States and Canada. Our access to international forwarders and the Atlas-approved network of more than 300 international partners for air, see or intermodal means that our controlled logistics reach around the globe.

Whether its’ truckload or LTL, Powell’s crews are trained to handle freight with care, rather simply a commodity. We’re able to offer padded-van transport for items that can’t be crated or boxed well.

Transport logistics – unique to Powell and Atlas.

From ground transportation to air, ocean and intermodal, we connect the channels to bring you domestic and international logistics options. For ground transport, we have the unique ability to transport your shipment with our own Powell fleet, the Atlas fleet or a brokered fleet. This capability makes us competitive for truckload and LTL shipments, and allows us to assign the right assets to your particular shipment. Our own fleet capabilities make us particularly good at time-sensitive inbound and outbound shipments, and after-hours deliveries. Ask us to quote a shipment today.
