Begin Logistics with Powell
We’re part of the supply chain for organizations in the Houston area and throughout North America. With our own fleet and access to Atlas® Van Lines resources, which includes 400 North American warehousing network locations, Powell can reach seamlessly to most corners of the United States and Canada. We work with international forwarders and the Atlas-approved network of more than 300 international partners for air, see or intermodal to manage logistics from Houston to destinations around the globe.
Most important, Powell’s high-quality drivers, crews and equipment make us your best fit for final-mile delivery of furniture, fixtures and equipment, including high-value, high touch items. Whether it’s truckload or LTL, our crews are trained to handle freight with care, rather simply a commodity. For items that can’t be crated or boxed well, we’re able to offer padded-van transport.
Transport logistics – unique to Powell and Atlas.
Whether it’s ground transportation, air, ocean or intermodal, we’ve developed the trusted networks required for efficient and secure transport logistics. For ground transport, we have the unique ability to move your shipment with our own Powell fleet, the Atlas fleet or a brokered fleet. As a result, we’re competitive for truckload and LTL shipments. We can assign the appropriate assets to your particular shipment. Managing our own fleet makes us particularly good at handling time-sensitive inbound and outbound shipments or after-hours deliveries. Ask us to quote a shipment today.
