Agricultural Carriers, Inc. was founded March, 1980 by our Father, Robert Carriker. With entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to live the American dream, Dad took his savings and young family on a life-long journey. Starting as an Intrastate agent carrier for larger companies he built ACI’s reputation and foundation as a service minded carrier providing Consistent, Dependable Service in Kansas. Very quickly ACI’s network expanded to Interstate, servicing customer’s volume and less-than-truckload needs and adding terminals in Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma. In 1999 our name was change to ACI Motor Freight to reflect his desired business model of a true LTL carrier.
In 2009, the second generation took the lead to continue the proud tradition of providing the service you and your customer’s have learned to depend on. Our team is just the right size to make sure that your shipment is where it needs to be when your customer needs it. But we are not so big that we have forgotten the meaning of Customer Service, our detail oriented team will make sure you receive top shelf priority.
My Sister and I are proud to continue the legacy created by our Father and Mother. In 2016, ACI received certification as Women Owned Business, giving us new opportunities to complement our business base. ACI Motor Freight continues to be the top central Midwest LTL service provider.
ACI continues to evolve daily to meet our Customer’s needs. The ACI family services many Businesses, Customers, and families, if you give ACI an opportunity we will make you part of the family.
