OUR STORY


Angela Eliacostas, founder of AGT Global Logistics, has over 25 years of operational experience in various trucking and transportation companies. The services these companies provided were general in nature and not always offered in partnership with the client. Having worked in transportation since age 12, Angela’s life-long experience gave her a unique perspective. Angela saw a gap created by these generic services, and an opportunity to keep the client’s world turning through elevated education and communication.

Angela’s vision for an unstoppable transportation company soon led her to utilities – a world where transportation demanded hands-on supervision and advanced communications to stay in motion. Utility logistics management became the focus and the opportunity to prove Angela’s vision.

Angela started her company as All Girls Transportation & Logistics, Inc. to highlight the woman owned and operated nature. Its focus was creating a transportation program unique to the utility industry with negotiable rates and services, identifiable carriers able to serve and a unique ability to educate, communicate, and provide personalized representation.

As offerings and services grew, a natural evolution took place including an evolved brand and name – AGT Global Logistics – the same customer service you already trust with a refreshed, solutions-driven focus.

On the uncertain road of global transportation and logistics, we keep your world turning. No matter what.

ABOUT ANGELA


Angela Eliacostas, President and Founder of AGT Global Logistics.

With more than 25 years in the transportation industry, Angela has worked her way from the ground up. When she was a young girl, Angela’s father ran a trucking company and was on the road during most of the week. In order to spend time with him, she would help her father fuel, park and wash his trucks, while also learning the transportation business along the way. Then, from moving on to a billing clerk shortly thereafter, to a now premier transportation contract negotiator. Angela is an industry leader in expediting shipments and serves as a liaison between carriers and companies.

Following generations of relatives with expertise in the transportation industry, Angela made the natural transition to her own career within the industry.

In addition to raising 4 boys, Angela has been recognized for making AGT Global Logistics one of the top 50 woman owned businesses in Illinois in 2015.

Beyond our ongoing business practices, we are proud advocates for public policies that increase the availability of low- and zero-emission energy sources. The ongoing transition to a clean energy economy is one that we passionately support.

Many of our clients operate at the forefront of the transition to the new energy economy, continuously innovating and expanding the availability of clean energy sources. As critical members of their supply chain, we hold ourselves to the highest standard when it comes to transporting materials on their behalf with the lowest environmental impact possible.

Sustainable Client Services

As a transportation provider, the most impactful way to conserve natural resources is through minimizing carbon emissions during transport.

More than 89% of our carriers are also Smartway participants. Each year, we commit to moving more freight and having a greater percentage of carriers who commit to Smartway practices. Today, more than 70% of the freight moved by AGT Global Logistics is handled by Smartway carriers. By 2018, we are committed to attaining 80% achievement by the same metric.

Serving clients in the nuclear, power, and utility industries we constantly evaluate our commitment to supporting clean energy. Today, 80% of our overall workload serves the energy industry. Roughly 70% of that total workload serves the distribution of clean energy. By 2018, we are committed to increasing the percentage of energy related work that fosters adoption of clean energy sources.
