About Colonial Freight
From its beginning in 1943 as a small, intrastate, Alabama trucking operation to the national, multi-service transportation company of today, Colonial Freight Systems, Inc., has maintained the same philosophy of innovative service at competitive prices. In 1950, operating as Colonial & Pacific Frigidways and serving the emerging frozen food industry, C. E. McBride, the company's founder, applied with the I. C. C. for transcontinental authority - the first motor carrier application of its kind. Colonial now holds both contract and common carrier nationwide authority. Colonial pioneered the use of a full on-line computer system that provides shipment tracking, and pick-up and delivery information. This information is available to customers 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Major companies have relied on Colonial to meet their transportation needs for 72 years. They remain customers because of Colonial's quality, efficient, dependable service.
