National Delivery Systems was founded in 2001 by a collection of owners with a combined 65 years of experience in the Transportation and Warehousing industries. To this day, the original ownership and management make decisions day to day that have overseen our rapid growth in the Mid-Atlantic region. Our service area now spans over 11 states with terminals strategically located in Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and New Jersey. Our initial experience in the fast moving courier industry has served us well as we have applied the courier mentality to LTL business. Traditionally the stigma associated with the old-line LTL management has affected the customers’ ability to rely on the LTL industry for their most sensitive type of shipping. Our business model and culture is firmly established with a focus on the customer.
In recent months we have increased our focus on providing Warehousing & Fulfillment services to our customers. Today, National operates over 700,000 square feet of secure warehouse space to meet every demand. We have reinvested profits every year into the expansion of our business which includes technology, terminal expansion and the acquisition of quality management personnel. We will continue this strategy in the coming years as we have a proven track record of success.
We have ambitious plans to grow National Delivery Systems even further in the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Southern Regions. As we grow and add new Terminals we will be able to provide a greater value to our customers while decreasing their costs to deliver products to their customers. Other key markets we will focus on are the Retail Distribution and Line Haul segments of transportation. Providing seamless delivery of inventory to the retail chain stores in the region through our vast distribution network.
