Kingsgate is an industry leading, non-asset based third-party logistics company providing our clients with the ﬁnest transportation and logistics support services available anywhere.
Proudly owned and operated by three generations of the Beckham family since 1986.
It's simple. We add value to your operation by fulfilling your customers' needs - that's the Kingsgate Advantage. This added value is a combination of many aspects within our company that makes us stand out from the rest in the industry.
From large Fortune 500 companies to small privately owned businesses, we have more than 250 clients who rely on us as their "go to" team. We take care of everything from day-to-day shipping in addition to serving the most unique need anytime of the day, 365 days of the year.
At Kingsgate, we don’t just invest in the success of our customers. We also invest in the success of our community.
Giving back is incredibly important to Kingsgate. It was bred into our culture by our founders. When the second-generation took over the company in 2008, founder Tom Beckham gave them one piece of advice, "Make sure the taxes are paid, and if you have anything left, give back." This has been proudly carried out by not only the founding-family, but by every employee at Kingsgate.
At Kingsgate, we’ve used our community outreach as a way to help our employees bond and support the causes that they are personally invested in. In addition, the ownership team is involved in and provides ﬁnancial support to several charitable boards that make a great impact in our communities. Many of these charities support local kids, families and organizations, help animals and provide ﬁnancial support to education and more.
We also ﬁnd it rewarding to sponsor events that promote our communities by providing entertainment and raising funds for important causes. Concert series, 5k races, golf outings and more are all events that we not only support, but participate in to bring members of our team together outside of the office. These events are a great way to weave the company’s connected culture through our team and into our communities.

An expert in emergency shipping, Kingsgate provides our customers with the deepest understanding of the expediting market of any other 3PL. Since our inception, long before most other 3PLs even offered the services, we have helped provide our customers with greatest scope of expediting services anywhere.
From cargo vans to straight trucks, tractor trailers and planes we have the breadth of knowledge to help our customers decide which mode of transport provides the most reliable delivery agent at the lowest possible price. Our live 24/7/365 coverage by our dispatch team is available anytime to handle these mission-critical shipments. Expediting is never "cheap", but it gets even more expensive when you make the wrong choice in providers or mode of transport chosen. We work to eliminate those errors and bring our award-winning services to the expedited shipper.
Through strategic relationships with shipping resources across the country, we can provide our customers with a variety of intermodal services. We provide our clients the savings of shipping rail with the consistency and reliability of truck services.

Since 1989, we have been providing our customers with door-to-door service to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico.
