OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM

Circle 8 Logistics was co-founded by Mike Lewis and Ryan Phillips in 2001. Over the past 17 years Circle 8 has grown by continually exceeding the expectations of our clients with service that makes Circle 8 a leader in the logistics industry; sourcing the best paying, best-matched freight in the business. We understand that we are more than just a broker or a partner to our customers; we’re an extension of their company. Our business approach is simple and direct, “Tell people what you can do…then do it.”

At Circle 8, we know that sustained success depends on our ability to continually improve the quality, cost, and timeliness of our services. We take pride in our ability to provide opportunities for personal, professional and organizational growth for all Circle 8 stakeholders.
