AFS started in 1982 as a one-man freight audit company operating out of a garage in Shreveport, Louisiana. Since then, it’s grown into an industry leading, multi-modal logistics solutions provider with offices across the country. While still providing freight bill audit, AFS has expanded service offerings to include cost management, supply chain optimization and managed transportation services all supported by superior technology and a leadership team with experience from the industry’s top carriers.

AFS focuses on offering excellent customer service, individualized plans for customers and a greater visibility into the complexities of transportation spend. On top of our established carrier rates, AFS continues to increase client profitability by providing innovative solutions and industry leading expertise. With detailed savings reports and on-demand analytics at your fingertips, you have the information needed to manage your shipping activity and make data-driven business decisions.

AFS was listed on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for three consecutive years and was selected by Logistics Tech Outlook as a Top 10 Transportation Management Solution Provider. It’s no wonder why companies such as Target, Gamestop, Dell and others trust AFS as their partner for supply chain logistics.
