Tango Transport, Inc.
6009 Financial Plaza
Shreveport, LA 71129
For Tango Transport, LLC., it all started small - a trailer bought at an auction for $3,500 to serve as an office, two trucks to haul freight and a couple of employees, all in a town with a population of 200. In fact, the only thing about this start-up operation that wasn't small was its founders' dreams.
With unwavering dedication to their vision and the help of a core group of loyal employees, today, the same humble start-up, more than two decades later, employs hundreds, provides services to thousands and spans the United States, Mexico and Canada.
Tango Transport was established in 1991 by the father-and-son team of Robert E. Gorman and BJ Gorman. Robert Gorman's youngest son, Chris D. Gorman, became Executive Vice President soon after joining Tango in 1994. Tango Transport is recognized by communities for its contributions, honored by business groups for its success and serves as a model to follow by its associates and competitors alike. It is a remarkable institution for not only achieving so much with so little, but also by doing it while defying so many rules of the current business climate.
At the heart of the company are principles and values that seem almost old fashioned today: Its owners and officers are not consumed by the bottom line, but rather by doing what is right for its employees, associates, and customers. This commitment to integrity has led the company to not only impressive growth, but also life-long employee, driver and customer relationships.
Tango Transport carries dry goods for companies such as General Motors, FedEx, Temple-Inland, International Paper, Academy Sports, Land of Lakes and Weyerhaeuser.
Operating a terminal in Shreveport, La., where the company's corporate headquarters are also located and operating facilities in Sibley, La., West Memphis, Ark. and Madisonville, Ky., Tango Transport continues to expand steadily and progressively. Discussions of opening future terminals, expanding its fleet and developing opportunities in other markets are underway.
Whether you're looking for a dependable carrier, a top-line employer or a trusted business partner, we have the solution for your transportation needs.
