About Us No Fail Service. Personalized Communication. Innovative Solutions.

Circle Logistics Rep

Who We Are

Circle Logistics was co-founded in 2011 as an asset carrier by industry experts Eric Fortmeyer and Chad Buchanan.  Within two years, our founders expanded their freight brokerage operation by opening their first branch office in Chicago.

Since then we have rapidly expanded to 8 other locations across the United States, boasting well over 100% year-over-year growth. Our people are our greatest asset, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without continuous investment in talented individuals.

What We Do

Circle Logistics is a freight broker providing logistics solutions to a wide array of customers. We provide coverage in the continental United States, Canada, and Mexico across all modes of transportation; Dry Van, Flatbed, Reefer, Expedite, Oversize, Air, etc.

We’re committed to delivering on three core promises to our customers:


No Fail Service, Personalized Communication, and Innovative Solutions

Why Choose Us? Reasons to choose us as your freight partner

Transparent Transportation

At Circle we lead the industry in transparency of your freight. We provide 100% enhanced visibility through integrations and partnerships with our enhanced visibility providers. Any shipment in real time, that’s a promise.

Extensive Carrier Network

Circle maintains an exclusive ELD-integrated network of carrier partners across all modes in 48 U.S. States, Canada, and Mexico. Our tiered capacity system ensures that every load receives the proper treatment – be it with our carrier partners, traditional brokerage, or through our sister company Circle Transportation, Inc.

Privately Owned

Being privately held brings many benefits to our customers:
We don’t have to play the numbers game, giving us freedom to focus on long-term strategies instead of short-term profits – meaning we can make good on our promises as we won’t take freight that doesn’t make sense for us.

Proprietary Technology & Partnerships

Circle invests heavily in technology, opening the doors up to find creative and efficient ways to service our customers. From API integrations to custom-built customer software, load matching to automation – Circle has all of your technology needs and wants covered.
