About Us


Our Company

SONET Transportation and Logistics was established in early 2015 through the purchase and rebranding of a small established transportation company operating in Southern California and Northern Baja California. Highly experienced and prominent individuals within the California trucking industry were brought in to form the management team and expansion capital was provided to establish a start-up fleet of 50+ company trucks. According to the US Census Bureau, SONET is already within the top 20% of California trucking companies according to size.

We run dedicated fleets for some of the leading IMC’s in the country.

SONET’s Services include Port Drayage and Railroad Intermodal services in the LA Basin, Bonded International In-transit Freight, Cross-border services between Mexico and the USA, and Regional service from Southern California to the 11 Western States.

SONET manages Hazmat business through its affiliate and offers logistical services (transloading, repackaging) for companies that need specific logistical freight management.
