The Port Jersey story begins in 1954, the year Bob Russo purchased his first truck and met Tony Becker while the two worked side-by-side in a New Jersey National Guard truck depot. Their hard work and perseverance quickly earned a reputation for reliability and professionalism…and built the company that would become Port Jersey Logistics. More than a half-century later, the organization founded on this reputation remains committed to constantly growing and adapting with the times and exceeding the evolving needs of their customers.
At the encouragement of our trucking customers, we began offering warehousing services in the early 1970s. The establishment of Port Jersey Distribution Services soon followed, and rapid growth helped evolve the company into a major Northeast service provider.
Always looking for ways to reduce customer costs, Port Jersey introduced consolidated freight shipping and added warehouses in several New Jersey locations. Customs Bonded and Foreign Trade Zone storage were offered to further service the growing import-export community. During this period of rapid growth and modernization, Port Jersey became the first public warehouse to occupy space in a new industrial park in central New Jersey, while opening two more facilities and relocating our corporate offices and trucking operations to Monroe Township.
The expansion of new facilities (combined with value-added services and our co-founders’ dedication to exceptional performance) makes Port Jersey Logistics one of the leading third party logistics services suppliers in New Jersey and the New York metropolitan area. The story begun in 1954, however, it is far from over.
Our sights are set on the next half-century as we continue to grow and evolve along with our customers’ needs and our entire Port Jersey team looks forward to continuing to re-define the standards of excellence in our industry.
