In 1979 D.G. Partridge started Computer Transportation Services, Inc., (MoveIt® Specialized Logistics) moving large mainframe computers for IBM, Honeywell and other manufacturers and leasing companies using blanket wrap, air ride vans. Operating out of a small store front in Breda, IA, Partridge was one of the first in the nation to recognize the role of transportation intermediaries after deregulation, and the very first third-party logistics company to recognize a need for white glove specialized transportation services.
In 1985, recognizing a need for time-critical parts shipments, the air freight division of the company, CTS Air Services Inc. (MoveIt® Freight Solutions) was formed and international services were soon added. Although CTS began as a compliment to blanket wrap trucking, CTS Air Services has grown into a full-fledged 3PL by keeping the same core focus on service, communication and price.
in 1999 a full truckload brokerage, Shipping Source, was formed to accommodate the needs of dedicated and expedited truckloads.
In 2009 Computer Transportation Services, CTS Air Services and Shipping Source were all re-branded as the MoveIt® Companies. Still a family-owned and operated company, Todd Partridge and Elizabeth Partridge Blessington currently manage the companies from their headquarters in Breda.
