A new, year-long exhibit will put the history of ArcBest and ABF Freight on display, as well as illustrate the company's contributions and innovations in its first century. Since it was founded as a local freight hauler in 1923, the company has transformed into a full-scale provider of end-to-end supply chain services designed to help customers solve their own business challenges.
Today, ArcBest has 10 campuses and more than 240 service centers across North America with more than 13,000 employees ready to serve customers around the globe. Many area residents have been employed with this long-time, Fort Smith-based company and personly knew its founders and leading executives. They have all played a role in the growth and success of ArcBest.
The ArcBest exhibit team is a collaboration of customer experience/marketing professionals Jennifer Faldon, Chris Harris, Jim Perry, Bradley Burgin, Kerry Ward, Jamie Lambdin, and legal department consultant Diane White, with oversight by David Humphrey, vice president of investor relations.
An opening reception for the exhibit is at 6 p.m. Fort Smith Museum of History, 320 Rogers Avenue, Fort Smith, Ark. 479-783-7841 fortsmithmuseum.com
