Mitchell Ward’s experiences in transportation came at an early age watching his father work hard as a truck driver. With a love for the industry, Mitchell founded MW Logistics in 2001 to provide a better experience for logistics customers and carriers. Before starting the company, Mitchell held multiple positions within the delivery supply chain, so he brought a well-rounded perspective of the industry to MWL.
That perspective is reflected in our carrier capabilities, which make it convenient to deliver loads for MWL. Carrier partners like Marten Transport and Cliff Viessman Trucking began working with MWL because we provide their team members with carrier-friendly loads and industry-leading payment terms. Strategic partnerships with these carriers have in turn allowed MWL to operate like an asset-based carrier, providing our customers with a superior experience.
With access to large quantities of shipping capacity and a commitment to customer service, MWL was able to gain the business of recognized brands from across the country. Proctor and Gamble was the first major corporate client of MWL — a relationship that started with the company’s inception in 2001. Since then, MWL has proven to be an exceptional logistics solutions for major brands like Clorox, Coca-Cola, Walmart, Frito Lay, Pepsi, Mars Petcare, Best Buy, General Mills, and more.
While MWL expanded to serve even more clients, Mitchell Ward bought out his original partner, Randy Bowman, to make MWL a 100% minority-owned business. In an industry that often lacks varied representation, MW Logistics stands out with its company perspective and culture. In addition to growing its business operations, MWL considers just as important its mission to give back to the communities it services through “MWL Cares” programs.
As MW Logistics looks to the future, we’re excited to serve even more clients and work with more dedicated and high quality carrier partners. If you’re interested in joining the MWL team, visit our Careers Page for more information.
