AMX Opens New Atlanta-Area Freight Terminal

Our new Atlanta-area freight terminal offers exciting new opportunities for shippers throughout one of the nation’s busiest corridors.

Georgia has been named the top state for “doing business” for eight straight years — and Atlanta is the nation’s leading freight market. Now, we’re closer to the action, and to our customers.

AMX has been serving shippers in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area — including McDonough, Fairburn, Union City and beyond — for more than 30 years. Our new Jackson freight terminal simply allows us to do it better with three critical advantages, including:

Faster, More Accessible Support

Even the best plans can fail. The key is to adapt quickly with a new, better plan. It’s made easier with a proven partner with a stocked trailer pool down the street or even across town rather than an out-of-state freight company.

The AMX fleet will include about 60 readily available tractors and even more trailers, so shippers in the greater Atlanta metro area can ship even last-minute shipments with ease. Local drivers can be behind the wheel and at your dock quickly, often within the hour. In addition, we offer a secured and monitored yard, so you can store freight with us instead of burdening your own crews with it. With our drop-and-hook trailer service, we can store loads over the weekend and have them ready to ship first thing Monday morning.

Regional Expertise

Every market offers unique pitfalls and challenges. A local freight company knows how to avoid many of them. AMX is a trucker-owned organization with more than 30 years of experience moving freight throughout the region.

We know how to move freight quickly and affordably. And with Atlanta-area residents managing our Jackson terminal, we have the regional knowledge to deliver superior service and strategies to improve your freight experience. We’re also invested in the local community, with a localized management team and drivers who want to earn the loyalty of their neighbors. With plans to bring 50+ more jobs to the region soon, more AMX pros will be closer when you need a quick-turn delivery, sage advice or even a lunchtime strategy discussion.

Trucking and 3PL Services

Our multi-modal strategy — combining trucking assets with 3PL services — provides you with more capacity, options and consistency. Our Jackson terminal complements our Atlanta-based logistics services team. Now we have the trailer pool, cutting-edge technology, expertise and resources to simplify shipping and delivery for the entire region.

Whether you use one of our trucks or we partner with our vetted carrier network, every shipment follows the same internal workflows. Invoicing and billing are the same. Service is the same. The key difference is that we can choose from our own pool or partner pool, which allows us to deliver better rates and faster deliveries.

New Terminal, New Opportunities

We didn’t make this move hastily. We wanted to expand our operations without losing the built-in stability and culture we’ve established over decades as a family-owned, family-friendly company. After careful planning, smart talent acquisitions and an immense amount of work, our new Jackson terminal is ready to serve customers throughout the Atlanta area. We’ve already established local dedicated customer accounts — and we’re ready to add more. Give me a call today to discuss how we can meet your freight shipment needs.
