EDWARD Transportation began in May of 2016. Founded by Edward C. Tracey who had spent the majority of his career as a National Logistics Entrepreneur. In February of 2022 EDWARD acquired Golden Isles Executive Transportation of Saint Simon’s Island GA.
Edward was a high school athlete and All American in basketball graduating from St. Anthony’s High School in new Bedford, MA. Named one of Southeastern Massachusetts top high school basketball players of all time by the New Bedford Standard Times. Edward was elected as one of the youngest ever to serve as a New Bedford City Councilman at the age of 24. Edward formed a Property management and development company at the age of 27 and a trucking company at the age of 29 which led to a national logistics career for the next 25 plus years. Edward created the first national retailer and manufacturer, direct to consumer, delivery market place in the late 1980’s. This was the first time in American history any retailer, manufacturer, catalogue sales and on line retailers who sold big and heavy products were able to ship from any zip code in the U.S.A. and Canada to any zip code in the U.S.A and Canada. Not only was this the first time this was able to be done, but done with technology tracking and tracing and status updates. The last mile industry had been primarily a local or at best a regional service.
Technology played a major role in building the first national network of last mile big and heavy delivery services. under the company called Virtual Delivery Source. Starting out in the small town of Sterling MA CDN was bought out by Mark VII Logistics of Memphis TN. Today the business is run under the name of Excel Logistics. The industry today is a multi billion dollar industry.
Edward retired at the age 55 and moved to the Golden Isles of Georgia from Atlanta in 2014. In 2016 Edward decided to start driving for Uber as a side gig and to see what this new phenom was all about. As one of the first Uber drivers in the area and after over 3000 rides, Edward realized there were gaps in Ubers services and paid very low rates to drivers who put lots of miles and wear and tear on their cars. Edward began looking for software he could adapt to a new style rideshare company. A concierge rideshare platform if you will. A study of the area transportation industry showed that there was access to traditional cab service or very expensive limo services. But it was hard to find a concierge model who offered late model vehicles and concierge services combined with a willingness to go anywhere and make a reservation by appointment through a website or state of the art mobile phone app.
In just a few years EDWARD has doubled business each and every year. Of course like the rest of the hospitality industry Covid 19 caused a set back in 2020. Finding it difficult to find drivers wanting to drive strangers putting themselves at risk for Covid 19. However, during 2021 business came back like a freight train rolling downhill with no breaks. With the acquisition of a competitor in 2022 EDWARD increased the hold on The Golden Isles market share
In the current market we tell people to book their reservations as soon as they book their flight and hotel.
In 2020 EDWARD Transportation expanded to include the entire Coastal Georgia Region as well as, Statesboro GA; Bluffton and Hilton SC; and Jacksonville, Florida.
