  1. Substance abuse/Prison to Successful Business Owner, with Kenneth Carter III S4 EPS 20 Host Kim Lengling 36:36

Don’t let a setback be a reason to sit down.” Kenneth Carter, III

From substance abuse to selling cocaine to serving a prison sentence, Kenneth took a look in the mirror one day while in prison and realized, “I am not a good person.”

That was his epiphany that led to change and the five core values he lives with to this day:

  • Professionalism
  • Empathy
  • Care for others/Community
  • Honesty
  • Reliability

“I knew I had to live up to these values even in prison.

Kenneth is now a successful business owner with plans to expand his business and speaking career to reach and mentor young kids so they don’t make the same mistakes he did.

Kenneth Carter III. was born and raised in Central Florida.

He left for the U.S. Army within a few weeks of graduating high school, which led to his career in logistics at the early age of eighteen.

In the military, he gained experience as a Motor Transport
Operator (88M), where he found his passion for transportation and logistics.
After sixteen years as a commercial truck driver, he started a job as a driver and was promoted in a few short months to regional manager for Estes Express Lines.

He decided to go deeper in his learning journey and started a logistics company in 2020. 

As the CEO and Founder of Ameriton Freight, he provides top-tier freight and logistics services nationwide.

Over two decades in the logistics industry, Kenneth has
spearheaded projects with Walt Disney World and other resorts locally in Central FL.

Aside from the hospitality industry, Kenneth has also led
projects with companies in various industries like food and beverage, construction, textiles, consumer products, the wiping cloth industry, outdoor storage shed market, and many more. In addition to logistics, he has personally transported, warehoused, and loaded products that have revolutionized freight management and
customer service.

A firm believer in community and Resilience, he devotes
time to mentor youth and spread optimism in business and personal growth with various non-profit organizations and provide private consultation for individuals dealing with substance abuse, lack of motivation, trauma, and career changes.

He aims to elevate Ameriton Freight to a global level,
to own ocean vessels, and to set new standards in international shipping. In addition, he aspires to create a fitness company that creates stronger bonds between parents and children looking to build stronger communication and fitness goals.

At the heart of it all, he’s a team player and innovator,
always looking for the next challenge and opportunity to make a difference in his community.
