Historical Context

Emery started in 1946 and was the first freight forwarder to receive a carrier certificate from the United States Government. For 40 years, Emery was the largest freight forwarder/integrated air carrier in the US.

In 1987, Wilton, Connecticut-based Emery acquired Purolator Courier, Inc., a leading provider of logistics services between the U.S. and Canada. In 1989, Emery was acquired by Consolidated Freightways, Inc. which gained U.S. rights to the Purolator name. In 2011 Purolator was renamed Purolator International.

Emery had its planes grounded on August 13, 2001, due to poor aircraft fleet maintenance. It officially ceased operating on December 5, 2001, and all of Emery's cargo operations were subcontracted to other airlines.

Emery's successor company, Menlo Worldwide Forwarding, was acquired by UPS at the end of 2004.
