About ABF Freight


ABF Freight is a freight carrier that provides (LTL) less-than-truckload services, mainly in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico regions. Although, it also allows businesses to ship freights anywhere across the globe via multiple mediums, such as water or air transport. 

ABF is nearly a century old and was created in 1923. It originally came into the market with the name 'OK Transfer'. This name was in use until 1935, when OK Transfer acquired a freight company called Arkansas Motor Freight and took over its name. This acquisition allowed OK Transfer to expand into an interstate firm rather than be restricted in Arkansas. It got its current name after acquiring another company called Arkansas Motor Freight Lines. 

The founder, Robert A. Young, combined both companies, and the name 'Arkansas-Best Freight System' was born. Once again, in 1980, the firm changed its name to what it is today: ABF Freight. It's interesting to know that in 1966, Young also made a holding company (Arkansas Best Corporation/ArcBest Corporation) for ABF Freight, and as of today, the company functions as its subsidiary. Today, ABF is headquartered in Arkansas and has over 22,000 trailers, partnerships with 125 carriers, and over 4000 tractors.

ABF Freight isn't restricted to only LTL services. In fact, it provides businesses with custom logistic solutions. ABF Freight can deliver within the same, following, or second-day for expeditious shipments. Within this service, ABF Freight offers assistance 24/7, 365 days a year. You can even get a rate quote via their official website. With ClickPost's API integration, you can access ABF Freight's shipping solutions today!
