Eleets Transportation, Inc. is the name of a new provider of logistics services. The company will provide three major types of service: pre-print transportation and warehousing logistics for the newspaper insert advertising industry, general commodities transport for shippers needing both truckload and less-than-truckload transportation, and intermodal transportation for those looking to take advantage of rail for the longhaul portions of their cross-country shipments. The new venture was created by Allen Steele and David Ware. Steele, president and chief executive officer of Eleets, has more than 35 years of experience in the trucking industry. Ware, chief operating officer, has spent more than 20 years in the railroad sector. Eleets will pay special attention to environmental considerations, the principals said, with each service focused on providing "green" alternatives to customers. It will look to make use of truck and rail assets that are running below capacity. Eleets is headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla.
