Our Story

In 2008, the economy was falling apart and the trucking industry was in rough shape. Simultaneously, Big Ed Burns was faced with a tough choice when he was told he would no longer have a job.

True American hero that he is, Big Ed decided to go off on his own. Burns Logistics Solutions, Inc. is an example of what can be done in this country on hard work and determination.

Our story is one of doing the right thing and connecting with people. Through relationships with the worlds’ largest shippers and niche, specialty carriers across the country, we’ve found unique opportunities for collaboration between organizations that would never have worked together otherwise. 

We continue to see incredible growth which we attribute to our core values of service, integrity, and growth. 

“We build relationships with carriers and shippers so that we know who to bring together and when. We connect the right carrier with the right shipper at the right time.”

Our Core COmpetency

We are the best in the world at identifying and implementing strategic relationships between different companies and people in the transportation, logistics, and supply chain industry.

Our Location

Part of who we are is where we are located. History and nostalgia are rife in the Shoemakersville Train Station in the cozy little town of Shoemakersville, PA. We bought the building as part of our continued growth and expansion.

Nothing screams “transportation” like the shrill whistle of an old-time train!
