Delivering Excellence

Argus Carriers, Ltd.

When Jamil Murji departed from his career in the world of finance, he sought to satisfy his entrepreneurial spirit by finding a market that would show promise long into the future. “Everything needs to be moved on a truck. If you look back at 2013, why I entered this industry was that ten percent of the economy is logistics,” noted Murji. Whether by rail, marine, air, highway transportation or warehousing, “everything has to move.”

Connecticut’s Most Affordable City

City of Shelton , CT

Shelton, Connecticut is making headlines for its low cost of living. “We are the most affordable place in Connecticut,” says Mayor Mark Lauretti. “And we are consistently and historically affordable.
