Company History - The TITAN Story

In 1968, TITAN began as two different companies, Air-Go and Mark-7 Delivery, catering to the local Portland airfreight cartage and trucking markets, respectively.  Founded by three entrepreneurs, John Landstrom, Don Van Auken and Glenn Wilson, their goal was to be recognized in the marketplace as a service leader.  After the initial startup proved successful, both John and Don followed their entrepreneurial spirits and created two separate businesses.  In 1972, Glenn purchased the interests of the other two and consolidated ownership of the company.  The success of the company and its original focus of becoming a service leader is evident by the relationships that have spanned over 40 years with many of the leading businesses in the region such as Fred Meyer, Tektronix, Xerox, Precision Castparts, Blount and McKesson Medical, to name a few.

On January 1st, 1998, the two companies were combined and re-named TITAN Freight Systems ®.  The word TITAN, over the centuries, has grown to symbolize strength and achievement - two traits we strive to emulate in our service to you.  The name change corresponds with a focus on offering a new brand of transportation leadership.  The emphasis is to expand from providing excellent time-sensitive services in the Portland Metropolitan area to becoming the premier overnight LTL (Less-than-TruckLoad) carrier in the region.  Our commitment as our fifth decade begins is to continually strive to offer the highest level of customer satisfaction and service available in the Great Northwest.

TITAN has continually focused on a single goal, Quality.  We believe our customers deserve reliable and friendly service by a well-trained customer service staff and uniformed drivers, using well-maintained, safe, and clean equipment.  We feel that this goal will help us offer superior on-time performance allowing TITAN to provide the best service in the region.

The vision of becoming the premier regional transportation company begins with instilling our employees with a singular commitment to satisfy the customer.  Our employees comprise the backbone of TITAN and the pledge of our management team is to build our future with mutual admiration and respect for all employees.  The skills, friendliness, and dedication of our employees will always be our most important resources.
