23-Year Old Becomes Youngest Black Entrepreneur to Own His Own Fleet of Trucks

Jalen Uboh, founder and CEO of All American Freight

Based in Atlanta, Jalen Uboh is only 23-years old, but he already owns a fleet of 4 semi-tractor trailers. Although being very young, he has already successfully built a multi-million dollar company called All American Freight, which is the freight trucking and logistics division of his parent company, Jalen Uboh Enterprises.
Getting started

Jalen was already a successful entrepreneur in the healthcare, real estate and construction industries. As a federal contractor, he also saw an opportunity to work with the U.S. Department of Defense as a provider of transporation and logistic services. With his already existing resources, he was able to acquire his trucks debt-free and he currently uses the trucks to transport army tanks, army vehicles, ammunition, and food supplies.

Jalen says that his company's mission is to meet and exceed the expectations of his clients while providing adaptable, expedient and cost-effective solutions to the mission of the United States government and its foreign interest.

What inspired him

Jalen says his interest in the trucking began after watching the 2016 film War Dogs, which depicts a true story of two young men that won a $300 million government contract.

This motivated him to start researching on how to began the process on how to become licensed and certified as a U.S. federal contractor. The rest is history!

Helping others

Jalen and his highly trained team drew from their experience as successful fleet owners/operators to design an online 2-day workshop to teach others how they can have the same type of success in the trucking business. It also includes two weeks of mentorship and exit counseling.

The course is called “How to Start a Freight Trucking & Logistics Company Debt-Free,” and students can expect to learn various skills including: How to incorporating a business, how to obtain trucking authority, how to fight freight (locally and natinonally), how to win commercial and government contracts, how to get Licensing & DOT Certifications, and how to determine the best places to start your business.
