Following seven years with ABF as district sales manager, Demma accepted a regional manager position with Robert’s Express, which was soon bought out by FedEx Custom Critical. Demma spent six years with FedEx before accepting a position in California, a decision partly driven by his wife’s health.
Shortly after moving to Valencia, California for the new job, Demma’s new employer went under. The move was not wasted, though, because Demma had already built enough relationships with colleagues and clients to take the leap of starting his own business. In 2006, Tony Demma launched Accurate Freight Systems out of the ashes of his previous employer and on the foundation of years of experience in the freight industry.
