From One Truck to Nationwide Trucking Capacity
Phoenix Cargo’s president/owner, Sam Umrzokov, was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. From an early age, he aspired to be like his father who worked in trucking and encouraged Sam to work hard, care for others, and to believe in himself.
In 2015, at the age of 22, Sam arrived in the United States with only 70 dollars – and a truckload of determination.Sam secured a job with a small trucking company in Youngstown, Ohio, assisting in the loading and unloading of cars. He eventually obtained his CDL and started driving for the company – and learning English on the road. He began creating his business plan in hopes of one day opening his own trucking company. This led to a meeting with a small trucking company in Orlando, FL that was experiencing high driver turnover.
The owner made a deal with Sam: in exchange for joining the company as driver relations and recruiting manager and decreasing the company’s high attrition rate, Sam would have an opportunity to learn the operations of a trucking business. He made the most of this opportunity and eventually acquired his first truck – effectively founding Phoenix Cargo.
Now, with a full fleet of trucks providing trucking capacity across the US, Sam’s entrepreneurial spirit – combined with his commitment to shippers, to Phoenix’s drivers, and to cutting-edge technology – is driving the growth of the company at a rapid pace.
Today, Phoenix Cargo has shown tremendous growth with over 400 trucks and 1,200 trailers and has earned over $155 Million in revenues. Sam's goal to open his company was realized; he has made it his mission to make Phoenix Cargo one of North America's safest and most reliable trucking companies. Today, the company is making OTR technological advancements with plans to make trucking safer and more efficient. This revolutionary change will help to ensure on-time deliveries and increase customer satisfaction. In addition, shipping freight will be more structured by eliminating time and lowering costs. As a result, drivers will have an opportunity to earn more and go home every other day. Through ongoing automated training, we will enhance their safety, schedule them home on time, and help to increase roadway safety for all! That's our contribution to helping to keep America's roadways safe and leading the charge in taking the industry to the next level.
