Inbound Logistics Top 100 3PL Provider 2023

Port Jersey Logistics brings close to seven decades of serving clients with top-tier logistics solutions. Equipped with state-of-the-art systems and facilities, we deliver on a broad range of logistics requirements accurately and efficiently, handling products such as consumer-packaged goods, specialty foods, food ingredients, health and personal care products, and alcoholic beverages.

Serving ClientsSince 1954

Our story dates back to 1954 when Bob Russo purchased his first truck in Jersey City, NJ, to offer pickup and delivery carrier services to the grocery industry. When he met Tony Becker in the late 1960s, the two entered the Public Warehousing business, setting the foundation for the comprehensive logistics solutions we offer today.

Since 2004, Bob’s son Rob Russo has led Port Jersey Logistics and continued to build upon his father's legacy. As one of the leading 3PL companies on the East Coast, we have expanded our business operations through Tyler Distribution, Continental Logistics, and 21st Century Distribution within the Port Jersey family of brands.
