Cargo Force, Inc. is headquartered in Coral Gables, Florida. Anthony “Tony” Romeo, Chairman of Cargo Force, started a ground handling operation in 1981 when he formed Miami Aircraft Support (MAS). Mr. Romeo formed Cargo Force in 2002.
Cargo Force acquired the business operations of Advance Cargo Services with its Miami presence and immediately opened operations at Tucson and Ft Lauderdale airports for UPS and Menlo Logistics. Further expansion came in 2005 with the opening of a station in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to handle operations for Caribbean Transportation Services, a FedEx company and Menlo Logistics. In November 2006, Cargo Force opened Jacksonville (JAX) for the USPS Terminal Handling Service operations. Further expansion of its USPS activities came in November 2007 with the opening of Newark (EWR).
