Company History

Pinch is a transportation and logistics company based in Houston, Texas. The Pinch Group of Companies (originally known as AFTCO Enterprises) was established in 1976 as an air freight cartage company, serving the airlines as an Air Cargo Incorporated Agent. Over the years, Pinch expanded services to include pool distribution, flatbed and intermodal trucking. By acquiring other established transportation services and integrating those service offerings alongside air freight transportation and local pickup and delivery, Pinch was able to expand its physical presence in all major cities within Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Alberta.

Today, The Pinch Group continues to provide flatbed, intermodal and logistics services for the energy, retail, ocean container and air freight industry. At its core, Pinch Flatbed provides full truckload, LTL and Dedicated Freight Services for the energy industry throughout North America. Pinch Flatbed’s “Smart Shot” service was created to prioritize and guarantee LTL shipments on our next day delivery routes to and from Houston TX. PGC Logistics provides third party logistics services for all business sectors and transportation modes. Pinch Intermodal services provide container transportation, container unloading, cross-docking and short-term storage services. Combining all three divisions Intermodal, Flatbed and PGC Logistics, Pinch Intermodal offers a unique asset based service, The Seamless Import/Export. “Save Time, Save Money, one call does it all.
