The C.H. Robinson story: Shaping logistics for more than 115 years

Named after our founder, Charles Henry Robinson, C.H. Robinson has evolved from a wholesale produce brokerage house in Grand Forks, North Dakota, into the world’s most powerful logistics platform.

Charles Henry set the foundation for our company culture—be hardworking, flexible, and service-oriented. You can still see these qualities in our values and leadership principles today.

Our focus on meeting the needs of our customers, contract carriers, and suppliers has firmly secured our place as a leader in freight transportation, supply chain logistics, and produce sourcing.

We meet every challenge with innovation, employing the best technology and talented, empowered employees to get the job done right.
