Our Story

In March 2014, Peter Coratola decided to use his talent, experience and passion to make a lasting impact in the logistics industry, despite the industry’s long-unchanged fundamental issues. By June 2014, Peter gathered the beginnings of the Ease Logistics team, people (along with three phones and three computers) who shared his vision for the company’s potential to truly improve the status quo. The initial team steadily expanded itself and the customer list while setting the high standard for customer service that has allowed Ease to grow to where it is today. In fall 2017, Ease Logistics moved to its current Dublin, Ohio location. With nearly 10 times the space and a steadily increasing volume, the new office was built and designed for imminent continued growth. With a heavy focus on state of the art technology, software, and data analytics to further separate Ease from the typical brokerage, we continue to drive together toward a bright future.

Our Culture

We stand behind our acceptance rates and our commitment to doing right by both customer and carrier. Anyone can promise you savings or benefits, but we do so while maintaining the highest standards of service and excellence. We refuse to cut corners and proudly put our talented teams to work for you all across the nation.
