President and Co-Founder
Matt Ziegler is “The dynamic let’s get down to brass tacks guy,” President, and Co-Founder of ZMac Transportation Solutions. In 2010, Matt, along with his business partner, Jeff McMahon (“The inspirational big picture guy”), formed ZMac Transportation, a logistics provider specializing in the transportation of flatbed and over dimensional freight. With an unwavering commitment to “always doing the right thing” for their customers and employees, ZMac has quickly grown to be one of the largest non-asset based service providers in the niche market of OD freight. Under Matt’s operationally excellent eye, ZMac has made a name for itself in the industry; securing its place on both the Inc. 5000 List of fastest growing companies nationwide and the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s Future 50 List of fastest growing companies.
It’s fair to say that the trucking industry is Matt’s wheelhouse. (Pun intended.) With over-dimensional transportation logistics experience that spans 20+ years, Matt discovered his passion for finding unique solutions to difficult problems early on in his career. Prior to co-founding ZMac, Matt honed his innovative approach as Vice President for an asset-based over-dimensional carrier located in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, where his efforts spurred the company to a 500% growth. Matt also served as Regional Transportation Manager for a global services company, focusing on route optimization and compliance with DOT and EPA regulation. Known for his straightforward, approachable style, Matt is a sought-after speaker at national trade events. Matt attended the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. He also knows a thing or two about the Green Bay Packers. When not talking transportation, you will most likely find Matt spending time with his wife and four kids or on the golf course.
