Who We Are
Syfan Transport is a Southeast-based carrier fleet featuring 24-7 dispatch, on-board GPS and ELD-compliant systems on every truck, and transparent reporting on all shipments. Together with its 3PL arm, Syfan Logistics, the company provides a diverse array of shipping needs throughout the continental United States, Mexico and Canada.
We seek to be a guiding light of ethics, integrity and Christian faith in our service to the transportation industry.
Shipping & Logistics Without the Drama
Syfan Logistics and asset-based Syfan Transport have always focused on delivering the highest level of transparency and reliability for customer shipments—with no surprises and zero drama.
To better serve customers, Syfan expanded its offices last year, bringing all departments under one roof. The 18,000 square-foot addition will accommodate projected growth with more room for accounting, human resources and training departments that are now together with the sales and logistics staff at the company’s headquarters north of Atlanta in Gainesville, Ga.
Syfan currently employs approximately 350 professionals, and the extra space will allow for another 100 or more new team members, according to CEO Jim Syfan.
Meanwhile, Syfan Transport continues to grow its over-the-road fleet with a new contingent of Peterbilt trucks for 2019 – addressing customer demands for even greater accessibility to equipment across the country. Syfan Transport’s carrier fleet is supported by several hundred trailers – dry vans, flatbeds and the industry’s most advanced temperature-controlled reefers with cold-chain monitoring and solar panels.
On the logistics side, Syfan further draws from an expansive network of carrier partners to bolster its service and fill gaps. Syfan Logistics has grown into one of the leading logistics services in the United States. Inbound Logistics, Transport Topics and other publications have consistently recognized the company in their rankings of the nation’s top 3PLs.
Syfan goes the extra mile by backing every load with primary cargo insurance—a commitment practiced by only a small percentage of the industry.
Numerous Syfan Transport fleet trucks and equipment options are available around the clock. And all support is personally handled by the company’s own 24-7 dispatch team (as opposed to a third-party answering service)
Syfan’s long history with JIT shipping for automotive manufacturers and small parcel air loads has forged a unique sensitivity to deadline-oriented shipping.
For shippers faced with a sudden spike in shipping volume or the occasional spot load, Syfan Logistics fills those emergency gaps.
Syfan Power Only
With much greater shipper demand these days for drop-and-hook shipments, Syfan’s Power-Only single drivers and teams excel in easing sudden spikes in your shipping volume or filling in for company drivers who may be out of hours under ELD rules.
Yard Management Support
For warehouse and storage operations, our independent Yard Management Support division—Turbo Sales & Leasing—provides sales and leasing of terminal tractors.
Freight Management Services
Syfan Logistics also can manage a company’s entire shipping program, providing significant cost savings.
Whether relocating a frozen food shipment from a damaged warehouse or moving large equipment, no job is too big or too small.
