ATW was created with the minds of keeping customers, and most importantly their pets, in mind. Back in 2011, the founder of the company, Kyle Gray, had to find a way to pay for a trip with himself and his cousins. They found a third party shipping website where shippers can put a “bid” on a product to ship, and then get paid for their shipment. They took items like a prosthetic leg, wheelchair, and other miscellanies items. On their way back, they had picked up an veterans dog to be shipped to his new home. The founder, being a lover of pets his entire life, ensured that the pet was well taken care of during the trip. The veteran was extremely happy with the service, and explained to the founder that it is hard to trust many shipment companies with pets, and he wished that their was more “companies” like his out there. This was a major sign of opportunity.
Soon after, the founder starting ATW, with shipping pets along the east coast, around the home base of Ohio. With the same mindset of keeping the pets and their family the top priority, the business began to grow. As years passed, the region of travel grew to anywhere domestically, to anywhere globally like ATW is now. With constant Transportation Specialists working on the road, to Customer Service members working in the office, the mission of ATW has stayed the same: to be the leading pet transportation company that strives for excellent service and care for customers and their pets.
