COMPANY OVERVIEW: In 1979, Ed and Deana Banning decided to take a leap of faith and started a business called Trinity Transport. They ran the company for 12 years before taking an even larger leap of faith, selling the majority of the company to their children in the early 1990’s. In 2012, Trinity Transport changed its name to Trinity Logistics, to reflect its growth to a top third-party logistics (3PL) company. Despite the growth, the Banning Family was adamant on protecting the Guiding Values of the company, keeping the culture of servant leadership alive. Today, Trinity Logistics is a Team Member Owned (ESOP) leading 3PL company specializing in freight arrangement and supply chain solutions. Based in Seaford, Delaware, Trinity has Regional Service Centers throughout the U.S. serving our customers, large and small.
