Since its start 17 years ago, Texas Pacífico (TXPF) Transportation Ltd. has operated with a team that keeps it on the path of success. “We’ve got a good group of people that are pulling together,” he says, adding that they do “what it takes to do the job right.”

The Pacific Northwest is renowned for its forest products, and the Knutson family has been at the center of that industry for the past 100 years. The family’s involvement extends from early methods of floating logs down the river to sawmills to today’s use of tugboats, trucks and even high-tension lines that function like zip lines to send carriages of logs weighing tons speeding down mountainsides to trucks and barges.

President John Knutson attributes the company’s longevity to several factors. “First of all, we have been very flexible in the jobs and the industries that we have aligned ourselves with,” Knutson says. “The need for that has been due to evolution in our different industries and our geographic area.”

People often associate the adage “location, location, location” with the real estate industry, but the Port of Stockton’s success shows how important a location can be to the distribution industry as well. Located in a hub of more major freeways, “We are in the geographical center of California,” Peter Grossgart declares.

Bay ContainerBay Container Services Inc. has been active around the Port of Virginia since the 1960s, and remains strong by adapting to the market’s needs. By Staci Davidson, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Publishing 

Tim Gibson, president of Bay Container Services Inc. (BCSI), has been in the container industry since he started working for his father’s company in 1972 in Chesapeake, Va. In 1974, Gibson joined the longshoremen’s union doing container repair, and spent 31 years working with his father’s company, doing storage, trucking and container repair on the waterfront at the Port of Virginia until he could take early retirement. At that time, however, it was time for him to take over his father’s operation, and that is when BCSI began being shaped to how it is today.
