Who is MFW?

We are a group of transportation professionals who are passionate about enhancing their customers’ supply chain experience through creativity, dedication, and consistent, high-quality performance.

Bringing automation & visibility to the life cycle of a shipment

MFW is a proud user of Port TMS, a powerful transportation technology that has been around for over 20 years. MFW uses the many integrations of Port TMS with trucking companies and third-party trucking tools—increasing MFW’s operational efficiency and delivering a better experience to MFW’s customers and carrier partners.

Listening to your needs

At MFW, we try to get to know you better than any other vendor or supplier.

We start with a conversation with one of our logistical experts to learn about your current process and pain points. And then the solution-design stage begins.

How it Works

MFW, a history

Founded in 1999

MFW was founded in 1999 and was a pioneer in the online LTL space for consumers, allowing them to self-serve and execute on their supply chain themselves.

Expertise and Experience

While we’ve been able to maintain and increase our LTL expertise over the years, we have proudly expanded our freight service offerings. We’ve helped our customers in the dry van, flatbed, refrigerated, over-sized, drayage, warehousing, ocean, and air areas for the past 20 years.

MFW today

We are proud to have customers and carrier partners that have been with us since day one, and look forward to continuing those relationships into the future.
