In the early 90s, W. Michael Jarrett had quickly progressed his career at a large Third-Party Logistics Provider (3PL), Caliber Logistics Systems; which provided transportation management services to Fortune 500 companies. In 1995, Mike became Vice President, Carrier Operations when Caliber was acquired by FedEx. In 1997, knowing that FedEx would eventually need Mike to relocate to their headquarters in Memphis, TN; Mike and his wife, Diane, began discussing options which would allow them to raise their family in Northeast Ohio.
As an executive leader and pioneer in the 3PL industry, Mike had noticed a glaring need. At that time, 3PL providers only focused their services toward large corporations. Mike’s goal was to provide small to midsize companies with the same technology, operational efficiencies and supply chain strategies only available to large organizations. Mike’s operational background provided the foundation for developing the JLS Routing Center, which provides unmatched visibility and total supply control to its clients.
Mike and his wife, Diane, co-founded PackShip USA in April 1998 in order to begin generating revenue to support his family and start up his flagship company, Jarrett Logistics Systems. PackShip is a retail shipping store for consumers and provides services to custom package high value furniture. PackShip’s network is set up with the ability to ship quality furniture products all over the world on common-carriers instead of specialized furniture haulers.
Jarrett Logistics Systems started up in 1999 with zero additional employees and zero revenue. In 2000, it only took one year as the catalyst to adding new business and propelling the organization forward beginning a period of exponential growth. Today, Jarrett works with organizations of all sizes from Fortune 500 to small, family owned businesses.
Mike and Diane have since expanded Jarrett Logistics Systems, Jarrett Warehousing, Jarrett Fleet Services divisions under the parent brand, Jarrett. They believe in providing end-to-end supply chain solutions for the benefit of current and future clients.
With nearly 500 customer locations in 43 states, all Canadian provinces and locations throughout Mexico, Jarrett is excited for the next 20 years to continue to work toward the goal of being one of the largest privately held 3PLs in North America.
