Providing innovative logistics solutions — across industries and around the globe
ArcBest® is a multibillion-dollar integrated logistics company that leverages our technology and full suite of shipping and logistics solutions to meet our customers’ supply chain needs.
100 years of redefining excellence in logistics
The way we live, work and do business has never been faster, more global or more interconnected — making logistics more critical to our economy than ever before. To succeed, companies must rapidly evolve, implement transformative technologies and lead with a human touch — something ArcBest has done for 100 years.
We started in 1923 as a local Arkansas freight hauler. Today, through organic growth, smart strategic acquisitions, visionary leadership and a mindset focused on the future, we’re a publicly traded, global, $5 billion logistics powerhouse with over 15,000 employees across nearly 250 campuses and service centers.
We’re focused on making it easier for our customers to do business.

We listen and we’re agile
As a logistics partner it’s important to put ourselves in our customers shoes, learn their business and pivot when it’s needed.
