Our mission is to establish ourselves as an outstanding logistics service provider by delivering consistent value and dependability to each of our customers.
As a young teen Leroy, Kenny’s son, began working in the mechanics shop repairing trucks and performing various other duties for the company. It was there his love for logistics was born. His involvement in the business grew and in 1988, after graduating from Calvin College, he and his wife Vickie moved to Georgia to continue his work at the company’s Athens, Georgia truck terminal.
A Family Operation
Six years later, Leroy and Vickie returned to Indiana where Leroy assumed a leadership role at Kopf headquarters. In 2008, after many years of working with his father, Leroy and Vickie purchased the family business. Leroy’s parents continue to play an active role in the company.
Firm Roots – Continuing Growth
With the addition of our brokerage division in 2011, the company continues to grow and thrive. Leroy’s strong leadership, vast knowledge of the industry and commitment to a value-based culture, has propelled our company forward. Together we are creating a stronger future by putting people first in everything we do.
Our company is a place where opportunities abound, where dreams become reality and where we never stop learning. Our discoveries over the past fifty years have taught us well and our humble beginnings continue to inspire us. We will always remember, it all started with one man and his truck.
A rich legacy, strong guiding principles and an enduring commitment to drive results in a way that is responsible, right-minded and honorable, have provided the foundation on which our company is built. Our values guide our steps and are the framework for all corporate planning and decision making. Integrity, personal accountability and humility determine our behaviors and have created a dynamic culture where ideas are born and people flourish.
We start each day with a passion for making a lasting, positive difference in the lives of the people we touch and create an environment where everyone can succeed. We care about each other, respect each other, learn from each other and are honest and truthful in our dealings with each other.
We are true to our word and live up to our commitments. The way we conduct our business is as important as the business we do. We build trust by listening and following through and believe the relationships we develop are as vital to our success in business as they are in our lives.
As we look to the future, we will continue to begin each day with clarity of purpose and a sense of mission, living up to the values on which our company was founded. Our heritage is rich, our beliefs strong and our vision great. It is an incredible honor to lead and serve.
