Paragon of Exceptional Service

About Us

We are a logistics powerhouse built on a foundation of shared values: diversity, drive, and above all else, family. From fresh drivers to seasoned execs, new leads to trusted partners, roughed-up rigs to cutting-edge software, the yard to the globe, family to family – we are building the future together.

Lazer Logistics started in 1996 when the two founders decided to act upon an entrepreneurial whim and buy a spotter truck. They pooled their money, placed a down payment, and set off to find their first customer. They arrived at their first night on the job wearing suits, having never driven a spotter truck before.

From these humble beginnings, Lazer has grown exponentially since its inception, adding blue-chip clients and expanding its footprint every day, every year. Adam Newsome joined as President in 2003, leveraging a strong legal and financial background to support the company’s growth.

Adam’s sister Stefanie joined that year to improve accounting and human resources functions. Phil Newsome joined Lazer in 2011 after operating his own transportation companies and is the COO. Our diverse executive leadership team and EV program highlight our commitment to DEI and sustainability.

Almost 30 years later, we have expanded our services to fill critical gaps that optimize throughput at transition points across supply chain operations, bringing visibility, efficiencies and unification to areas that have gone underserved.

  • Yard Spotting/Shunting
  • Shuttling services
  • Trailer Rentals/Leases for cartage and storage
  • EV Fleet
  • Intermodal/Drayage
  • Gate Management and Technology
  • Yard Management Software (YMS)

We now operate from coast to coast with the same tenacity and care for our people and clients. We have grown to become the largest provider of outsourced yard logistics at 700+ locations in the U.S. and Canada. In 2023, we achieved a sustainability milestone through our industry-leading EV Spotter Program: surpassing one million zero-emission miles and one million zero-emission moves.

With over 5,800 employees, we have the density of services and geography to meet our clients’ needs, providing customized solutions so our clients can concentrate on their core business. Lazer has 10,000+ assets and the largest fleet of outsourced EV spotters. We help clients achieve their sustainability goals by buying, operating, and maintaining all EV equipment and managing grant programs.

Lazer saves fuel and money with a 15% idle time vs. 52% industry average. Our analysts monitor accounts and provide real-time visibility into KPIs, uptime, and billing accuracy. Our YMS systems – PowerYard and Spotlight – offer customers a choice of functionality. We also use several safety platforms and gate technology systems to maximize throughput and have customized driver onboarding tailored to enhance work experiences that bolster higher productivity and lower driver churn.
