About Us

Our Roots Are Deep

TOP Worldwide is a part of the E.L. Hollingsworth family of companies. E.L. Hollingsworth and Company has been hauling freight since 1924. ELHC had one of the first operating authorities in the motor carrier industry, with operating authority that was granted in 1941.

We are a Native American owned and operated company, dedicated to safely and consistently meeting our customer’s expectations. We meet customer requirements by recruiting, investing in and training an exceptionally talented staff and by using the most comprehensive logistics software available to the transportation industry. We also provide our employees the necessary tools, resources and ongoing training to ensure continual improvements and quality throughout our organization allowing for sustained growth and profitability.

About TOP Worldwide

TOP Worldwide was founded in 2007 as a way to assist our customers with freight our sister company could not handle. Since TOP began we have been a customer-centric business focused on customer satisfaction, quality, trust, and a true partnership.

Today, we still have the same focus and culture. We have developed lasting relationships with customers and carriers throughout North America. We have a dedicated operations team, inside sales, and agents that embrace our roots and mission we set out to accomplish years ago.
