Our Story

LiVe Logistics was founded on the belief that our families are the foundation for what we do.  As two brothers with decades of experience in Third-Party Logistics and Brokerage services, we wanted to unite our passion for this industry with our love of family.  LiVe is the union of the two communities in which we have chosen to raise our children and where we operate our business--Libertyville and Vernon Hills, IL.  

As we believe in the power of family, we also believe in the value of our personal and professional relationships--and we treat our clients and employees as such.  Our management team has over 38 years of combined logistics experience, and we are confident that LiVe Logistics is a company where our customer and carrier partnerships will thrive, as we strive to add value to both sides of our network.  

In 2003, I joined a small start-up freight brokerage as the fifth employee.  I had the honor of being part of the founding team that grew the business from under $10MM in 2003 to over $200MM in 2014.  I served in many roles throughout my 13 years there--developing strategy and driving growth through these three simple concepts:  People, Culture, and Relationships. 

 

Thank you for choosing LiVe Logistics--we won't let you down.

Our Values

People

We recognize that our team is the single most important asset we have at LiVe Logistics, as they are the driving force behind our growth.  We believe that empowerment, engagement, and leadership will lead to continued growth and development.  Our strategy and vision for the future is clear.  Every person on our team plays a critical role in our success with our client partnerships, as well as in making our company an employer of choice.

Culture

Our people are the pulse of our organization.  This pulse defines the culture that makes up our brand.  If our team is engaged, our clients will reap the benefits of their outstanding service and desire to go the extra mile.  As a non-asset based organization, we don't own the trucks we dispatch nor the freight we haul; what we own is the environment we create which sets the tone for the relationships we foster.

Relationships

We strive to create an environment of collaboration and teamwork with our customer and carrier partners.  We believe these relationships lead to success in uncovering synergies between transportation networks, and trust that we have our clients' best interests in mind.  Always.
