Founded in 1977 in Nashville, TN, after spending a short amount of time in Nashville as a District Manager, Barry Pearse returned to the city in 1977 with his new bride and an idea for a cartage company.
With only 2 vans and a former operations manager, Accelerated Inc. was launched into the industry. Through continuous hard work and an acquisition Barry Pearse has been the one responsible for the growth of the company over the years.
Accelerated Inc continued to grow into a large and successful cartage company. Over time, courier work and airfreight delivery allowed the company to expand north into Kentucky and because of this it had become the largest pick-up and delivery company in Nashville.
In 2008, with the success of IAD, there was demand for service both in and out of Baltimore and Philadelphia. Service was set up with agents at BWI and PHL while service was run directly out of Washington- Dulles.
With a presence in Miami since 2004, offering in-bound service only, it finally became possible for Accelerated to handle this lane both North and South with its own fleet, beginning August 2009.
With Northbound freight out of Miami, Accelerated has been able to put together a service network, allowing next-day service into ATL and MEM, and second-day to every other station from MIA.
