Our History

Times change. Values stay the course.

Three decades ago, our founders Mike Patterson and Meyer Bolnick saw a major need for customization in the transportation industry. Armed with the belief that clients deserve far better than one-size-fits-all logistics, in 1989, the duo established King Solutions as a values-based 3PL company committed to a client-centric approach. Since those early days, King has grown into a leading provider of everything from international freight transportation to warehousing and fulfillment.
Sure, a lot has changed since 1989, but one thing that will never change is our firm belief in the ideas our company was founded on.

Community Involvement

Making the world a better place, starting right here where we live.

King Solutions’ community involvement and outreach program, “MaKING a Difference” provides a platform for King employees to give back, inspire and enrich lives. Each month, employees are encouraged to donate time during working hours to ensure local charities receive adequate support throughout the year.

We founded our “ThinKING Green” program in 2012 to further our commitment to social responsibility. Our goal? To reduce our environmental impact and greenhouse gas emissions through best practices related to paper usage, water, fuel, biodegradable resources, energy and recycling. We believe 3PLs should always strive to be as green as possible.

A healthy place to work is a happy place to work. So we’re always looking for ways to make our workplace more supportive of healthy choices and a well-balanced lifestyle. Our Workplace Wellness program promotes healthy living for our employees and their families through education and other inclusive activities.

As part of our “ThinKING Green” initiative, King is honored to be a member of The SmartWay Transport Partnership. This critical program helps freight companies improve fuel efficiency, increase environmental performance and boost supply chain sustainability.


The King Way. Our process has our name on it, but it’s totally designed around you.

Go figure. We bring you our most creative solutions by following a straightforward process. Sure, our six-step “King Way” is exclusive to us, but it’s also inclusive of you. Our process has got you covered from the first phone call to the last unloaded box, and is with you every step in between.

1. Pre-start

This is where we determine your project scope, and review current and past handling experiences. Think of it as our “getting to know you” phase.

2. Design

We like to call this “where the magic happens.” Taking into account what you need, we craft a customized solution for your needs. We’ll write a project charter, establish service parameters, define responsibilities and develop a continuous improvement plan.

3. Development

Now the idea comes to life. We set up the required tools and train account management—and just like that, it all starts to feel, in not-so-scientific-speak, “really real.”

4. Testing

Testing.Trouble-shooting. Potato, potahto. This is where we do a little QA team testing to make sure there are no, shall we say, “unexpected surprises.”

5. Go live

Just try to contain our excitement. Because this is where we launch your plan (after you sign off of course.) Yep, it’s happening.

6. Post-launch

Just because the program is live and running doesn’t mean we stop looking for ways to improve it. After launch, we install a continuous improvement plan. (What can we say, we’re overachievers like that.)


Our Life’s Work

We celebrate the big passion behind every small business.
