Logistics Firm Racing Towards Lofty Goal

 Jay Mejia, president and CEO of Leon Cannon Logistics in Lowell, is amazed at how quickly the company has grown since its founding in October 2009.  




Leon-Cannon Logistics is customer-focused transportation and Logistics Company headquartered in Lowell, AR serving some of the largest and diverse companies in the world.  We provide value by utilizing a systematic approach to delivering to the most demanding and complex supply-chain needs.

Leon-Cannon Trucking was originally founded in 1994 in Kennett, MO to provide dry van services to small and mid-size customers in the mid-south.  Leon-Cannon quickly established himself in the industry by being a reliable, trustworthy extension of his customer’s enterprise. Over the years in response to his customers’ needs he expanded his service offerings to include refrigerated and flatbed freight.  In 2009 Mr. Cannon decided it was time to pass the reins on and sold his company to WMJ Enterprises, LLC.

In 2009 under new corporate management Leon-Cannon Trucking decided to relocate closer geographically to their customer base to Lowell, AR and change its name to Leon-Cannon Logistics to better reflect its service offerings.  Leon-Cannon Logistics has since grown to provide transportation solutions for some of the largest companies in the world. The company’s sound financial management and diverse customer base has allowed it to expand into dedicated services, Van, Flatbed, Refrigerated, LTL, RGN, Over dimensional, Expedited, Trade Show, Air freight and Intermodal services (rail, ship and truck). The good entry strategy and high quality customer service paved the way for the success of Leon-Cannon Logistics.

 Under Mejia’s leadership, the company's international business became a fast-growing part of Leon-Cannon Logistics overall operations. Mr. Mejia achieved this by building an international management team that delivered strong operational results in a complex global environment.
Mr. Mejia directs a wide variety of programs involving transportation and logistics planning, process improvements and technology evaluations; as well as programs to demonstrate and deploy innovative technologies and systems. His organization's work includes assessing the operational performance of transportation and logistics technologies, evaluating the resilience of transportation and logistics infrastructure elements and systems, and integrating global logistics information to improve operations, safety, and security.

 Leon-Cannon Logistics continues to carry on Mr. Cannon’s legacy of reliability and communication to this very day. Operations and senior staff members were key in the development of business segments for some of the largest transportation companies in the world.
