Our Story

In January, 2020, EASE moved to a larger, innovative location this new year. The new company headquarters consists of three buildings and spans close to 12,000 square feet, nearly triple the size of their previous space. With continued company growth, this new decade was the best time for the company to find a larger location that meets their current company needs while allowing space for future expansion. This move enables EASE to continue focusing on and growing their state of the art technology, software, and data analytics, and offering their clients a full range of logistics and freight management solutions from temperature-controlled LTLs to over-dimensional hauls.

Our Culture

For some companies, figuring out what they stand for is a marketing exercise. For us, our values are why we exist in the first place. Ease was founded on a passion to be better, a promise to have our customers’ backs, and a commitment to delivering an unrivaled customer experience. Our team brings a genuine enthusiasm and can-do spirit, a willingness to listen, and a fierce loyalty to our customers and partners.

We’re also loyal to our own, and we believe everyone in our company—from the office pups to the CEO— should be treated as family and have a say (or bark) in how we do things.
