In 1972, the founder of TWI Group, Inc.
, Stephen J. Barry Jr. vowed to establish a company based on the strength of two principles: to offer customer service designed to address the specific requirements of clients, both current and potential, and to provide a range of services never before offered by other forwarders including round-trip exhibit freight transportation.
Those two founding principles were put to the test when TWI compiled a logistics package for the Sundstrand Corporation and shipped a total of 29,000 pounds of freight for twenty-seven exhibitors to the 1973 Paris Air Show. With that highly successful transaction, TWI was well on its way to becoming the largest exclusive provider of personnel and freight logistics to the exhibition industry. It also began a series of firsts for TWI, and in some cases, for the industry as a whole.
As of 2015, TWI has now served the trade show and event industry longer than any company in our field. Using the same traits instilled in TWI by its founder, TWI continues to provide trade show and event shipping with on-time delivery, excellent service and "first class service" on which TWI was founded. To date, we are proud to have over 44 years of exceptional service and a combined 500+ years of dedicated staff experience. We have successfully moved over 250,000 shipments to exhibitions internationally and handled over 250 million pounds of freight to over 15,000 shows. Our extensive experience in trade show shipping and exhibition logistics is incomparable.
