Ace Doran is among the oldest active motor carriers operating in the United States. Founded in 1913, the company has operated from its former location at 1601 Blue Rock Street in Northside for over six decades.
In September of 2013 the Cincinnati-based family-owned business sold to the Bennett Family of Companies, formerly named Bennett International Group, in McDonough, Georgia.
Since its sale to Bennett, the company has grown exponentially. The company has added many new freight agents, expanded its freight brokerage capabilities, and has added over 350 power units, resulting in over $100 million per year in additional revenues.
“By leveraging the strengths of our 100+ year old company with the financial strength, technology, marketing, and other benefits and support that Bennett brings we have formed a real winning combination. We have an outstanding group of employees, agents, and contractors. Without question, our strength is our people.”
said Jim Collins, President of Ace Doran
