PDS Transportation, Inc. and PDS Express, Inc. were both started in 2008 by Patrick DiLeonardi, who has over 30 years of transportation and logistics expertise. Pat started his career with C. H. Robinson and Champion Transportation, focused on operational excellence and business development. After 10 years with these two industry leaders, Pat founded JPT Logistics and Transportation in the Chicago market and later opened a hub in Atlanta, prior to the business being acquired by Rockwell Transportation and FreightQuote.com. After overseeing a seamless transition of his former business, and continuing to see the need for a full-service, low cost logistics provider based in the Chicago market, Pat started PDS. Since its humble beginnings, PDS has rapidly grown into a full service transportation and logistics provider offering a full menu of services across the “lower 48”, Canada and Mexico.
"Our mission at PDS is to deliver, timely, safe, and efficient transportation solutions that meet and exceed our customer's needs. From our supporting staff members, to the drivers behind the wheel, every member of the PDS team is committed to providing “best in class” logistical services to our customers every time we are called upon. Through our commitment to excellence, we are driven to develop mutually beneficial, long-term logistical partnerships that will result in growth and prosperity."
PDS is in the process of expanding its presence by opening a new warehouse and cross-dock facility in St. Charles, IL. Given the significant growth that the organization has experienced over the past 2 years, additional space is required to support existing customers, operational efficiencies and new business development.
