Our History

In 1958 Bob Cunningham, armed with only his knowledge of the transportation industry, modest savings and a plentiful amount of hope and hard work, launched Kroflite Motor Express Inc. Bob quickly became aware that the most important aspect of his new business was to put the customers’ needs above all else, a practice his company, now known as Midwest Cargo Systems, firmly believes in today.

In December of 2006 Bob put his company in the very capable hands of his family; his son Robert and son in law Tom Ciukaj. Together they have continued in Bob’s footsteps by gaining the loyalty and trust of new business, upholding the standard of quality expected of their drivers and as always, making sure that the customers receive the same personalized service that they did in 1958, “No is our last possible answer” has become the customer motto for Midwest Cargo Systems, Inc.

Today, Midwest Cargo Systems, Inc, is providing a wide variety of transportation solutions. Ranging from Intermodal Container Delivery, Dedicated Operations, Spotter Services, and Regional Delivery. Midwest Cargo Systems puts the customer’s needs first. Exceptional customer service, professional drivers and customer integrated technology make Midwest Cargo Systems the ideal choice to manage your transportation needs.
