About B2B Transport Market
During the hot summer of 1984, the border city of Laredo, Texas witnessed the first hand shake and "many salutes" symbolizing the foundation of a much valued business partnership and important friendship between Todd, Clay and Steve Aaron of Stevens Transport and myself, J.O. Alvarez, Jr.
Todd Aaron, my father (J.O. Alvarez, Sr.) and I had the brainstorm idea of developing a diversity partnership, as a suite of products available to the logistics shipping public who's corporate mission is to help support and develop diversity in our community.
Construed by today's standards, as one of North America's most coveted cross border logistics partnerships, B2B Transport Market, LLC was founded out of market demand for quality national diversity suppliers. I, J.O. Alvarez, Jr. am the 51% owner and President of B2B Transport Market, LLC. I manage the day-day operations of our multifaceted suite of logistics products.
