A History of
Dedicated Logistics Service Delivery

U.S. Port Vintage Rubber Stacks

Founded by George Poole the company weighed and sampled commodities at the Norfolk Port. They utilized a warehouse to recondition faulty commodities found during inspection.

We handled “thawed” rubber that had been stockpiled by the US government during WWII.

At the request of one of our customers in order to be able to handle a heavy load of paper products for them. We now handle many more products in the Savannah warehouse.

We now have over 220,000 sq. ft. of storage space in Hampton  Roads.

The company has served the shipping industry in several different capacities over the years with services concentrated in the Tidewater or Hampton Roads area of Virginia. The company has handled many different types of materials over the years, with the mainstays of rubber, paper, and lumber. We have handled quite a bit of heavy cargo, furniture, and automobiles.

We are launching a digital rebranding movement to push into the modern era of business and exceed our customers’ needs and expectations. Our clients deserve the best quality service and we are here to provide them with cutting-edge customer service and exceed their 3PL needs.
