Loadpower was started by Jerry and Patty Evans in 1981 after buying the franchise rights to Northeast Ohio. This region was one of 20 located throughout the USA and is the only remaining Loadpower from that franchise family. After some development and growth, they would soon add their sons Michael, Brad, Rick and Robert. Today we offer dedicated and LTL service while shipping in all of the lower 48 states and Canada. Loadpower provides 48-53’ long vans and flatbed trailers pulled by professional over-the-road truck drivers. After over 37 years in the shipping industry, we have contracted to thousands of carriers that depend on Loadpower throughout the year to help keep their trailers loaded and rolling. This is key to Loadpower as you may assess. You see when you call Loadpower to help with your shipping needs, you call all of those companies. Give Loadpower an opportunity to strengthen you shipping department.

Sales & Service
Michael joined LoadPower in 1986 three years after graduation from high school and two years after completing the Miami Florida School of Hard Knocks.
Brad has a Bachelor's degree from the University of Toledo with a major in Marketing and Logistics as his specialty.
Pat is well into her second career having recently completed her 20th year at LoadPower.
Sick of the sand, sun, and parties that surround a young man in southern Florida, he moved back home to Ohio to join a young and growing freight brokerage company named LoadPower. He brought with him sales and client-relation building skills that were key to LoadPower's early and ongoing success. After running the LoadPower Denver, CO office for two years, Michael relocated the offices to Kissimmee, FL. In 2004, LoadPower called him back to the corporate offices here in Ohio, where he and his wife, Cindy, are raising the last two of their four children. Like Brad, Michael is an Ohio boy, so if you want your load delivered at turbo speed, no jokes about his beloved Cleveland Browns.
He has worked in transportation since his college graduation and most of that has been adding to the integrity and client relations of LoadPower for over 20 years now. When he is not shipping products around the country, his degree is still handy as his two boys keep him running from school to activities to home on a daily basis. Brad married his lovely wife, Karen, over ten years ago. She is a successful attorney. Brad's Ohio roots make him a Buckeye through and through, so check the sports pages for scores before joking about his beloved football team.
Pat, with a B.A. in English and Professional Writing, a minor in Management, and a background in telecommunications, joined the LoadPower team because of her love of finance and her desire to make a contribution. Pat comes with a broad range of skills. Whether doing AP/AR or answering phones, she is proud to be a part of the LoadPower team. However, ask her about her "life outside of LoadPower" and she'll gladly tell you about her husband Pete, two daughters, and four grandchildren.
Robert Evans is Loadpower’s freight coordinator. His experience includes moving used machinery, construction products and food-grade packaging. He has local delivery experience (Batesville caskets, 1980’s, slightly morbid, but you get used to it). Outside the office Bobb spends all his time with family. He enjoys talking about himself in the third person, especially when writing his biography.
