In 1999 Jimmy Pettigrew and Bobby Tims founded PT Brokers. Jimmy brought his decades of food distribution experience and Bobby brought his financial and administrative background. They steadily grew their dry bulk brokerage business until Jimmy’s retirement in 2004.

In the following years Bobby brought in Joey Holecek and Michael Tims to push the business in a new direction. They noticed that the best logistics specialists are rare and it requires a skill set that could not be easily taught.

They decided that just as Amazon had become the top platform for the nations top retailers, PT Brokers would become the administrative and finance platform for the best logistics specialists in the dry bulk industry. These specialists get to do what they do best… solve the shippers problems in an efficient and cost effective manner. PT provides them the back office skills and financial clout to make their efforts seamless and efficient.
