About Us

In 2017 in the basement of Jack’s home, Jack Stewart, who has an extensive background in operations management and consulting, and son Jeff Stewart started Portage Logistics at a crossroad in Jeff’s career in logistics. The company’s name is attributed to good memories shared by the two in the boundary waters.

Although our office is more robust now, we still have a close team. We strive to build a business where everyone benefits. We value acceptance, respect, honesty, integrity, and accountability.

Our focus from day one has been providing the best work environment for employees and the most personalized experience for customers and carriers in the industry. Work with us, and you are family!

Whether it’s dry van, reefer, open deck, power only, drayage or warehousing, respect and relationships drive every step of our processes.  Let us put our transportation network to work for you!

Responsibility is the “ability to respond.” Our team responds with eagerness and integrity.  There has never been a better time to partner with a team of logistics specialists that can help your company successfully weather volatility in market conditions.

Offering Old School Customer Service with cutting-edge technology

With most of the logistics companies moving towards no-touch freight transactions, we feel there is a great risk of dehumanizing the process of freight movement.  Relationships have, and always will, drive the process of successful supply-chain execution.  Our strong relationships, coupled with the same back-end technologies that drive industry leaders, allow us to blend transactional accountability with volume efficiencies. Even with the evolving challenges in today’s supply chain environment, you don’t have to leave your fulfillment to chance!
