DACA was formed on November 17, 1971. A dozen transportation executives from around the country, interested in distribution and consolidation, sat down in a Dallas hotel and formulated the guidelines for an organization that eventually came to be known as Distributors and Consolidators of America. Ira P. Jones, a long-time Texas trucking executive of Southwest Freight Distributors in Dallas, TX, was the guiding force in DACA’s infancy. He envisioned a bright future for the consolidation and distribution of a variety of goods, primarily for the retail trade.

Today, Rich Eberhart as President of Southwest Freight continues on as a former DACA President, helping to guide the organization with continued success and expansion of its members providing transportation, warehousing and logistics throughout North America and now internationally.

The DACA organization is here to serve you, the customer, with the utmost integrity, honesty and quality. Choose DACA for all your transportation, logistics and warehousing needs!
