President’s Letter


December 18, 2019

Dear Dayton Freight Customer,

I once heard the quote, “Christmas is a time to slow the pace, appreciate the love of family and friends, and express our gratefulness for every blessing bestowed upon us.” For me, I’m extremely grateful for time spent with loved ones. And, I’m blessed with wonderful employees and loyal customers like you. May you take the time to “slow the pace” and enjoy this joyous season with those around you.

It’s been a great year at Dayton Freight! My brother Mike and I have had the pleasure of working with many great Leaders, including our second generation – our nephew Anthony, my son Tom III and Mike’s sons, Sean and Ryan. Over the last several years, they have played a critical part in improving our processes. Our operations, technology, innovation and culture are thriving because of their efforts. They each have their own passions and love for this organization. We will continue to mentor them but I can assure you, Dayton Freight is in good hands.

Speaking of operations and technology, our team took the time to analyze current processes to improve our facilities and technology. It may not be visible to the eye but you can feel it when your freight is moved on time and intact! We continued to listen to your needs and upgraded several facilities in 2019 to better manage freight capacity. Recently, we grew our footprint into Dalton GA, allowing seamless service to Chattanooga and full state coverage in TN. This opening helps expand our quality service to the northwestern region of GA. We will continue to increase efficiencies and strive to provide the best experience for you.

Thank you for being a part of Dayton Freight. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your business and loyalty. May this Christmas end 2019 on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year.

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
