Purpose over Profits
Chariot Logistics was founded in 2012 by Joe DiLeo, who saw the problematic nature of third -party logistics and set out to change the industry. Working in the transportation industry, Joe quickly realized that 3PLs consistently put their organization’s benefit above the customers they serve, going against everything he stood for. He built Chariot with the purpose of “Carrying people to a better place” and putting that purpose over profits.
At Chariot, we realize that we exist to handle our customer’s problems. And in an era of increasing competition, the only thing that sets us apart is service. Chariot Logistics has experienced tremendous organic growth, doubling revenues every year since opening. This success is a result of our company’s purpose and Core Values: Trust, Growth, Dedication, Humility, and Transparency.
At Chariot, we live our Core Values every day, come see the difference.
Your Chariot awaits.

Meet the executive team
President & Founder
Joe DiLeo, a highly self-motivated, energetic and charismatic Transportation Executive, founded Chariot Logistics in 2012 with one purpose. That purpose was to establish a Transportation company that put the interest of its customers and employees before the bottom line. After seeing the cutthroat nature of a traditional 3PL, Joe was motivated by a personal dedication to help “Carry people to a better place” and had the passion to inspire others to join his cause. He based Chariot on 5 core values: Trust, Growth, Dedication, Humility, Transparency and Expecting Greatness; core values that he lives out every day. Joe’s dedication to uphold these core values is the foundation of Chariot’s success, an annual growth of over 100% every year since 2012. Chariot has grown from a one-man shop into a thriving international 3PL, serving a diverse customer range from mom and pop shippers to Fortune 500 companies.
A progressive thinker who Expects Greatness, Joe has created a company that puts “Purpose over Profits”, creating lasting and sustainable relationships, an innovation in the transportation industry. Joe is native to Nashville, TN and a Graduate from the University of Tennessee Haslam College of Business, where he was a member of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. When he’s not working to “Carry people to a better place”, Joe can be found on the golf course, in a duck blind or watching his Alma Mater’s sports teams, the Volunteers.
