About Us

Ernie Magalotti, Founder of Legacy Logistics

When it comes to tradeshows and events, we understand the pressure managers face when planning to exhibit. The complexities involved in event coordination is demanding and can detract from the core purpose of the event. That’s why we have dedicated ourselves to helping thousands of companies, like yours, with their event coordination and shipping.

Legacy was started in 2000 by Ernie Magalotti. Prior to beginning the company, Ernie spent many years working in the corporate side of the transportation industry. As a result, he recognized gaps in how companies understood event logistics. Event logistics is demanding and requires an unprecedented amount of knowledge to minimize the impacts of variable expenses. Factors such as drayage, material handling, overtime charges, and forced freight are unique to event shipping and can quickly impact costs, if not handled correctly.

Core Values of Legacy Logistics

Ernie opened Legacy Logistics because he wanted to provide a reliable service to exhibitors requiring trade show transportation.  Today, almost 20 years later, Legacy still emulates the same entrepreneurial spirit as in 2000. As a result of continued growth and the formation of strategic partnerships, Legacy has expanded service offerings to include show services, warehousing & storage, and white glove services.

At Legacy, we are passionate about providing the best possible services to our clients.  We earn our reputation for excellence through the people we hire, the lengths we go to in order to protect our clients’ investments and the strength of our relationships with industry partners.
