Perry Mandera graduated from a Chicago public high school in 1975, during very turbulent times in America. With his love of God and country, Perry decided to join the U.S. Marine Corps. It was there that Mr. Mandera was assigned to the motor pool, which set his destiny as a future pioneer in the world of transportation into stone. It was there, while serving his country, Perry learned how to drive a truck. It was something he seemed born to do, so when he returned to civilian life after receiving his honorable discharge, he turned to his new skill to start a career as a driver.

He was just barely into his twenties and Perry Mandera spent several years working for a number of transportation companies. At just 23, he decided to start his own company. He turned that first company into a success and sold it off in 1985. Then he started the company The Custom Companies, Inc. Showing his continued aptitude to understanding the transportation and logistics industry, Perry Mandera guided The Custom Companies into a business that now services thousands of people across the country.

Perry Mandera’s company services businesses big and small. These are mom and pop shops to Fortune 100-sized businesses and they are all services with The Custom Companies’ signature customer service and excellence. These days, Perry’s company exceeds annual sales of 200 million dollars and also serves to provide livings and careers for hundreds of people.

The Custom Companies, Inc., is an industry leader set right in the middle of the country, located in Northlake, IL, near Chicago. This central location allows Perry Mandera to offer logistics services, over-the-road trucking services, Truckload and LTL services for domestic and international services, plus International Air Freight and more.

Perry continues to guide his business and remain active in his community. He made sure his company provided relief for those affected by natural disasters. Perry is also married and has two children and is involved in their school life. Perry is a well-rounded person with a passion for serving his fellow man, and for providing outstanding service in the transportation industry.
