Over and over, we are asked, “Where does the name XLR8 come from?” You probably know the name if you grew up near Houston during the 80’s and 90’s. XLR8 was a roller coaster in the city’s beloved theme park, AstroWorld. If you have ever been in the trucking business, you understand the correlation. Like a roller coaster, the industry has its share of ups and downs.  XLR8 Delivery was founded in November 2016 by Paul Pitman, who claimed he would never re-enter the market before this venture. However, based on the success of his other company, Gulf Coast Crating (GCC), and the desire to offer customers a more complete product offering, XLR8 Delivery Inc. was born. The company has grown from helping GCC deliver crates to servicing a wide range of clients with a diverse fleet of over 125 trucks.


To continue to advance a customer-focused company that provides impeccable service that is unrivaled across our industries.
