About RL Swearer

The R.L. Swearer Company was founded in 1915, dealing mainly with industrial barge traffic on Pittsburgh’s “Three Rivers”. Over the ensuing years, we have grown along with the global trade community, allowing us to bring the world to our clients, and our client’s products to the world.

Today the RL Swearer Company is a highly respected transportation, logistics, and trade services provider that helps our clients thrive in a rapidly changing global business environment. Our menu of cargo services includes customs brokerage, air and ocean freight forwarding, export packaging, warehousing and distribution, project handling, a global agency network and a multitude of other trade related functions.

The most important asset at the RL Swearer Company is our people. The average RLS employee has at least fifteen years of experience in the industry. We put this experience to work for our clients every day, ensuring that transactions of all types are handled quickly, accurately, and in full compliance with relevant laws and U.S. government agency requirements.

Our account managers invest time in developing client relationships, allowing us to tailor our services to their needs instead of offering a ‘one size fits all’ package.
