PowerPath Transportation’s founders began their friendship as young boys in 2003. They quickly realized they had many common interests, such as sports, fishing, and a love of entrepreneurship. They decided to start running a lemonade stand that became so popular, traffic was backed up from the house to the entrance of the neighborhood. They cannot be certain if it was the delicious lemonade or the adorable 8 and 10 year old salesmen that brought in the customers. Regardless, they knew how to run a profitable business. Although a disagreement in marketing strategies led them to compete one summer, they worked out their differences and continued their friendship, honing their entrepreneurial skills along the way.
Their career paths continued in the typical fashion, both attending college to further their education. After attending different universities and starting separate careers, they came together again at the end of 2016 and decided to start another new venture together. They realized that the logistics industry was one they could apply their education, experience and entrepreneurial drive to create something great. Although the founders have parted ways, the ideals of the business continues on.
In January 2017, PowerPath Transportation, LLC was formed and opened for business.
