Local Company Moves People & Makes Profits

Baltimore, MD—Taylor Made Transportation Services, Inc., formed on July 8, 1996, is a full-service transportation provider located in Baltimore, Md. Allen Taylor, CEO, opened his business to provide a much-needed service for his community, providing door-to-door transportation services for children, the elderly and persons with disabilities. Over the past fifteen years, he has grown the business beyond traditional door-to-door transportation services. Allen now also offers transportation consulting, logistical and courier services and recently added ambulance and emergency management technician services.

Some may wonder how Allen has achieved so much in such a short time frame. His answer is simple; he used the many free, government-based resources available to the small business community. In particular, Allen applied for and became certified as an SBA 8(a) firm, Small Disadvantaged Business and received HUBZone certification. Each of these programs is designed to assist socially or economically disadvantaged small business owners with procurement opportunities, tax credits and more. Taylor Made Transportation has since graduated from the 8(a) program, but is grateful for the opportunities it presented. Through the program, Allen received several contracts with the Veterans Administration and other government agencies. Taylor Made is very proud of their assistance transporting America's heroes to their medical appointments and other obligations.

Allen’s solid reputation and exceptional service have earned him the respect of his clients and neighbors. He refers to his company as a “sensation in transportation” and strives to live up to that slogan, by remaining flexible and treating each client with dignity and respect.
