Although Jalen Uboh is only 23 years old, he has constructed a multimillion-dollar business empire called Jalen Uboh Enterprises, a holding firm that includes Premier Medical Supply and All American Contracting Solutions, among other enterprises and investments.
The focus of All American Contracting is freight trucking and logistics. Uboh already owns a fleet of four semi-tractor trailers despite the company still being in its beginning stages—making him the youngest black entrepreneur to own his own fleet of trucks.
According to BlackBusiness.com, before this enterprise, Uboh was already a successful entrepreneur in the healthcare, real estate, and construction industries. What inspired him to create All American Freight was the desire as a federal contractor to provide transportation and logistics services to the U.S. Department of Defense. Now, he utilizes the trucks to deliver army tanks, army vehicles, ammunition, and food supplies.
The core of his company, Uboh states, is to go above and beyond the expectations of his clients while providing efficient and cost-effective solutions to the government, according to BlackBusiness.com.
Uboh’s interest in trucking initially began with the 2016 film War Dogs, based on the true story of two men who won a $300 million government contract. It was this film that inspired him to become a federal contractor and led to the success of his business.
Uboh and his team now use their experiences to teach others how to achieve similar business success. They have designed a two-day online workshop called “How to Start a Freight Trucking & Logistics Company Debt-Free,” in which students of the course can learn a variety of skills such as how to incorporate a business, how to obtain trucking authority, how to fight freight (locally and nationally), how to win commercial and government contracts, how to get licensing and Department of Transportation certifications, and how to determine the best places to start your business.
