Company History

In late 2000, two air cargo industry veterans, Steven McDonald and James Mueller, met at an industry conference in Munich, Germany. Over conversation and outlined on a back of a napkin, an idea was born. Steve, the recently departed co-founder of DC10/MD11 freighter operator Gemini Air Cargo and Jim, the co-founder of Air Cargo Associates, an industry leading Aircraft Charter Broker, agreed in principle to join forces. In April of 2001, they started what is now known as M2 Transport.

Steven McDonald and James Mueller

From 2001 to 2006 M2 Transport operated as a non-traditional charter brokerage company. The company actively partnered with airlines (Murray Air Cargo and AirNet) and freight forwarders (Eagle Global Logistics and Security Storage Company of Washington) among others. Unlike other charter brokerage companies, M2 risked human and market intelligence capital and developed no-risk partnerships with its customers.

In late 2006, Mr. Mueller retired from M2 Transport after his shares were purchased by Mr. McDonald. The two remain friends today with Mr. Mueller retaining an advisory role with the company.
