ABOUT THE CENTRAL MARKETING FAMILY OF COMPANIES
Exceeding expectations since 1913, CMTS Logistics is over 100 years in the making.
CMTS Logistics provides customized logistics and transportation solutions from the core of our business – from point of origin right through to your customers.
Sam Dinovo, Sr. opened the Dinovo Fruit Company in 1913. A proud immigrant from Sicily, he built his company on quality service and irreproachable ethics. Starting by peddling bananas to local neighborhood grocery stores, he was soon buying carloads of bananas and ripening them in his store-front warehouse in Delaware, Ohio. With the end of World War II, his six sons formed a new company, Dinovo Brothers, Inc. to more efficiently distribute produce to the many super-markets that were springing up throughout Ohio. With state of the art banana ripening rooms, coolers of various temperatures to handle all types of fresh fruit items, several delivery trucks and multiple docks, the brothers were well equipped to carry on their father’s tradition of quality and service
In 1970, noting the need to offer volume purchasing to wholesale and chain distributors, brother Mike Dinovo, Sr., formed a new company, Central Marketing Associates, Inc. He quickly attracted many large companies within five mid-western states. In 1975, to better handle growth in business, he was joined by his two sons Rick and Mike, Jr. Again following the tradition of quality and service, Central Marketing Associates, Inc., was made a trading member by the Blue Book in 1977 and received the Business Character Award from the Red Book the same year.
As the produce industry changed through consolidation, a vertical move in transportation was deemed necessary. In 2001, steps were taken to move the company in that direction. In 2003, a sister company, Central Marketing Transport, LLC was formed to handle the transportation of fresh fruits and vegetables. Today, a fleet of Central Marketing Transport tractors and trailers, service all major growing areas to retail and food service customers in the mid-west. In keeping with this dedication and vision, Central Marketing Transport Services, LLC was born to provide an asset based logistics solution to our customers.
