Exploring New Horizons: Gulf Relay’s Expansion into Retail, Pharmaceutical, and Manufacturing Industries

In this episode of The Relay, Maddie Cook and Blanks Baldwin of our Gulf Relay team discuss the company's recent diversification of their freight portfolio. Over the past 18 months, Gulf Relay has expanded beyond its traditional focus on beverage and paper commodities in the South to include retail, pharmaceutical supplies, agricultural equipment, and manufacturing. This diversification has allowed for more stable year-round freight levels and has helped the company during traditionally slow periods by adding new customers and commodities. They also announce the opening of a new terminal in Welford, South Carolina, which enhances their service offerings and supports their commitment to getting drivers home by providing more freight options.
