About Patriot Freight Group

Since then, that dream has become a reality. Patriot Freight Group has developed into a fully functional trucking service provider, doubling revenue year-over-year, with Patriot Express running 20 trucks throughout the lower 48 states and Canada. Our goal is to continue to double revenue year-over-year and running 50 trucks by the end of 2019.
