Foundation of Service
Diakon Logistics was founded in 1991 with the vision of transforming the way home delivery carrier service was offered to retailers. Founder Bill Jarnagin modeled the company to provide an extremely customer-centric service by offering strengthened benefits and high-quality support to retailers. The enhanced service concept, which centered on the idea of offering last-mile logistics through a dedicated fleet and on-site management, was a timely concept that was widely appreciated by retailers. Diakon grew from that foundation and has steadily risen to be a national prominence.
A Cornerstone of Consistency
Diakon earned its start by delivering appliances for Sears in Pittsburgh, PA. Today, the partnership is stronger than ever and has expanded to include Sears customer deliveries in over a dozen additional locations across the country. In an ongoing effort to continually meet retailers' specific needs and provide cost-effective solutions, we expanded our specialized services to include logistics, transportation, and warehousing.
