Frozen Food Transportation

About this project
Based in Dallas Texas, Frozen Food Express Industries (FFE, www.ffeinc.com) is the largest asset-based temperature-controlled carrier in the United States with 13 locations throughout the country providing cold storage and break bulk services. When the company was started in the 1940s, cross-country transport of perishable goods was extremely limited. Founder Cy Weller, of San Antonio, would go on to successfully revolutionize the food transportation industry, changing food distribution and grocery shopping as we know it.

By 2007, FFE had acquired two other trucking companies: American Eagle and Lisa Motor Lines. The company called upon Allegory Studios (then called WriteEdge Communications) to facilitate a strategic work session with leaders across all companies to develop consensus on a common vision and unified corporate culture.

Corporate Overview

One company. One call. One leader in solution development.

Only one carrier can bring together the full-range of services, the capacity, and the singular focus of the largest temperature-controlled transportation company in the nation. FFE has the assets and the strength to stand behind the promises we make and the determination to follow-through for every customer. A renewed commitment to superior service makes us the one solution for all your needs.


Celebrating a history of innovation that spans over 60 years, FFE set in motion ideas that changed the way the world thinks about perishable goods. In 1948, we identified the opportunity to transport fresh and frozen foods across the country and pioneered trailers with the deep-freezing capacity that made it possible. Under the leadership of Stoney Stubbs, followed by his son Mitt Stubbs, we went on to establish an extensive temperature-controlled LTL network that is still unrivaled in the industry. Our unique, multi-temp, LTL trailers are divided into two separately cooled compartments to accommodate both frozen and refrigerated loads on the same run.

Today, we pair these offerings with a complete slate of transportation services as a publicly-owned company traded on the NASDAQ (FFEX). And with just one call, our customers have access to every dry and temperature-controlled transportation service they need.


We maintain a network of 16 strategically-positioned terminals throughout the 48 states with a fleet of over 2,500 state-of-the-art trailers at the ready. Our team is proud to provide:

LTL Services:

Through more than 650 regularly scheduled LTL runs each week, we offer frozen, cooler and dry services between every major port within the country, as well as between points in the U.S. and Canada.

Truckload Services:

Temperature-controlled or dry van, we’ve got the capacity and the expertise to handle any load. Long-standing relationships with Fortune 500 companies form a strong customer base, with a reach that extends to include through trailer service to/from Mexico, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Customized Solutions:

Specialists in hauling pharmaceutical, meat and confectionery products, we provide dedicated equipment and services and enjoy exclusive, long-standing relationships with many of our customers.


We bring it all together through a dynamic logistics group comprised of highly-experienced trucking professionals intently focused on customer needs. We work in seamless collaboration with each FFE division as well as through a myriad of reliable transportation partnerships. From over-the-road to intermodal, one call is all it takes.


We’ve been here for over 60 years. We will be here tomorrow. Our trucks have pulled-up to every temperature-controlled dock in the country. FFE’s professional drivers are refrigeration experts, and our customers rely on their extensive knowledge to transport sensitive loads with skill. Customers, employees and stockholders enjoy the benefits of a family-owned atmosphere, paired with the accountability of a publicly-traded company.

With energy and enthusiasm, we capitalize on all our strengths and deliver on our reputation as the one company to call for transportation services.
