Pinnacle Freight Lines, a privately owned company, headquartered in South Kearny, New Jersey, has been in operation since 1984 serving the Northeast region of the United States.


In 1984 PFL acquired the assets of Edra Haulage, a truckload carrier for Ronzoni Macaroni located in Long Island City NY. In 1993 the company moved to a larger facility located in South Kearny, NJ. Continued expansion involved further relocations to Elizabeth NJ, Secaucus NJ, and then eventually to the current location in South Kearny, NJ. The current location was chosen to provide direct access to all major highways in and out of the Northeast region to help expedite customer shipments in any direction.


Pinnacle Freight Lines adopted the Management by Objectives model when our business began 30 plus years ago. Company employee objectives are measurable by performance. As a team, we hold ourselves accountable to perform our everyday tasks to the highest standards to meet or exceed our Customers expectations. With exceptional customer service as our highest priority, management enables all office staff to keep that mission at the forefront of their mind. It’s because of this that we can generate a sense of pride, and passion for what we do. When everyone is aimed at accomplishing the same goal, great things can be achieved.


At Pinnacle Freight Lines we advocate a management philosophy of equality throughout our organization, from office staff to drivers to mechanics. We listen intently to everyone’s needs and desires, as well as communicate the need for accountability. This helps us to create a business that people enjoy coming to work for, and an environment that inspire people to be the greatest version of themselves.


Our experience of being in business for 30 years and having a workforce strategic management style allows PFL to respond quickly and effectively to customer requests.


In 2010 PFL rolled out industry leading TMW™ Software Solutions to maximize service efficiencies enabling us to offer rate competitive pricing to all our customers. Fleet Routing, GPS dispatching by Omnitracs, Asset Management and weekly Owner Operator settlements are just a few examples of PFL professional intelligence.
