Skyline Messenger Service, Inc. was founded in 1982 as Atlanta Courier Systems; A big name for three
childhood friends and their personal pickup trucks and cars. John Grainger,
Dave Weikers, and Craig McCann started out by providing ground transportation
in Atlanta for the interstate banking system, and, exclusively through word-of-mouth,
became the pickup and delivery agent of choice for a multitude of courier
companies across the nation. John and Dave incorporated under the Skyline
moniker in 1985 and began to grow a company through trial and error; Arguably
the best teachers.
The underlying principles of this endeavor were, and still remain, keep service
levels high, and keep employee turnover low. More than twenty years down
the road, the service continues to impress and the average tenure of Skyline's
employees is 9.67 years!
The willingness to build its
services around the individual customer's need has created an attitude
of flexibility within Skyline. No two customers' are likely to have
identical needs, and our continued success has come through providing each
customer with service tailored to their specifications, not ours.
Through the years, varied transportation
and logistics services have been added, including routed courier, pharmaceutical
distribution, perishable air cargo handling, bio-medical services, warehousing,
and line haul trucking. In 1998, Skyline added regional express parcel distribution
to its lineup and daily services began across Georgia.
True 24/7/365 service is provided from our main offices in Atlanta. No
answering machines, no "press 1" menus.
Zero debt, excellent credit,
and a can-do attitude afford today's Skyline with the ability to quickly
assess, bid, and capitalize new services. If it is not a current offering
from the Skyline menu, chances are good that it will be soon!
