Our History

NT Logistics accomplishments from day one to the present:


1988 Lynn Gravley founds North Texas Carrier Corp (NTCC), an asset-based contract carrier company.

1994 NTCC moves into the dedicated third-party logistics (3PL) field and continues to provide contract carrier services with a multi-truck fleet. The idea of establishing a full-service logistics provider grows.

1999 Gravley founds NT Logistics to take over and concentrate on NTCC’s expanded logistics business. The newly formed company records sales of more than $18 million during the year.

2000 NT Logistics sales grow to $43 million.

2001 With $53 million-plus in revenue, NT Logistics receives the Southern Methodist University Cox School of Business / Dallas Business Journal award for the second-fastest-growing privately held company in the Dallas area as part of the Dallas 100 awards.

2002 NT Logistics expands operations with an additional office in Houston, Texas and adds an agency in Lubbock, Texas. Revenue growth increases and the company finishes fifth in the Dallas 100 list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the Dallas area. Additionally, for the first time NT was named one of the Top 100 3PL Providers.

And for the third straight year, the company is recognized by SMU’s Cox School of Business and the Dallas Business Journal in the Dallas 100 listing. In October, NT opens a new agency in Springdale, Arkansas.

2004 For the second consecutive year, NT Logistics is a finalist for the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and its continuing rapid growth keeps it on the Dallas 100 list of the area’s fastest-growing privately held companies.

A retrospective view of the origins of what is now known as “Chicken Wednesday”

chickenWhen NT Logistics was in its infancy, we all worked long hours and usually through lunch. Around noon each day, Darlene or Elaine would exclaim, “I am starving! What are we having for lunch today?”. As members of a very small company, we would each pitch in a few bucks and someone would go fetch what we all decided to have for lunch. At least once a week, Bob would request fried chicken, this seemed to happen most frequently on Wednesdays. Eventually it seemed that each Wednesday when the “I am starving!” cry was heard, the response would always be “It’s Chicken Wednesday”. We would each chip in our share and Elaine was dispatched to go get chicken for the troops.

As NT Logistics grew, and still continues to grow, each and every Wednesday is now officially “Chicken Wednesday”. We have fried chicken catered in at no cost to our largest asset – our people. Without them, we would not be able to provide the superior service to our customers that sets us apart from the rest of the industry.

We also routinely invite customers and friends over on Wednesdays to share in our lunchtime ritual. The famous “Chicken Wednesday” shirts, which feature the “Top Ten Reasons to be Associated with NT Logistics” are given to all of our guests. Of course, the number one reason listed is “Chicken Wednesday.”

We hope that you’ll join us for Chicken Wednesday sometime soon!
