2014 marks the 40th anniversary of Pentagon Freight Services.  The company was founded by Geoff Smith who continues today as the Group CEO and Chairman.  From humble beginnings in a small office above a butcher’s shop in London (where the butcher’s scales were used to weigh early shipments!), Pentagon now has 54 owned offices in 25 countries with over 1100 employees, 234 of which are based at their impressive 14 acre Houston campus. 

Every month the Pentagon Group handles over 15,000 shipments for the Oil & Gas industry ranging from the smallest of consumables and spares, right up to full rig moves in excess of 10,000 cubic meters. George Booth, Senior Vice President of Pentagon USA commented “it’s exciting for all of us involved in the Pentagon story to share in this milestone.  As the largest privately held dedicated Oil & Gas freight forwarder in the world, our clients and staff enjoy the nimble and flexible approach of a private company whilst benefitting from the strength and depth of a global organization.”
