Ameriflight takes flight across the Americas, delivering time-sensitive packages for banks and for other air cargo carriers. The company serves some 200 communities, primarily in the western US but also elsewhere in the US and in Canada and Mexico. Managing 75,000 packages a day, it operates a fleet of about 170 aircraft, consisting of small jets and turboprops from several manufacturers, from about a dozen hubs. The company serves other air cargo carriers by meeting their larger air freighters at major airports and distributing cargo to markets not easily served by big aircraft. Ameriflight is owned by its management team.
Ameriflight's management, led by company founder and president Gary Richards, bought the company in 2007 from cash transporter ATI Systems International. ATI, which had owned Ameriflight since the 1970s, sold the company in conjunction with its acquisition by Garda World Security. ATI retained ownership of Ameriflight's fleet, which it then leased to the carrier.
