Meet the Team
William Onorato enjoyed his first taste of the transportation industry while working at an entry-level position for a Texas-based shipper. Young, eager and with an entrepreneurial spirit, Onorato quickly recognized the demand for a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier seated in the oil and gas capital of the world. Onorato began to attend industry networking events and conferences, and connected with as many professionals as possible. During the recession of 1994, Onorato laid the foundation for what later would become Triton Global Inc. – one of the leading, American-owned and operated Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers and freight service providers on the Gulf Coast today.
In the early stages, Onorato launched the beginnings of Triton Global Inc. as Triton Overseas Transport. He worked out of his apartment and focused on establishing customer relationships built on dependability. Personalized customer care and reliable shipping solutions were central to his mission. Recognizing the need to balance capacity with expansion, Onorato integrated one trade lane at a time, effectively managing and fine-tuning each service along the way.
Since 1994, Onorato has expanded Triton Overseas Transport into Triton Global Inc. What started as a single-lane service provider now offers international freight services to more than 200 destinations across the globe. He forges partnerships with agents worldwide to ensure the timely, secure delivery of cargo, and leverages Triton’s strategic location to offer direct rate advantages and faster transit times to an ever-expanding international customer base.
Today, Triton Global Inc. offers FCL and LCL, break bulk, import, trucking, airfreight and warehousing services to customers around the world. In addition to its strategic location, Triton works closely with the Port of Houston to position the region as a gateway to the world.
In addition to being passionate about transportation, Onorato is committed to supporting his local community. He sits on the board of directors and contributes regularly to Cherish Our Children International along with other nonprofit organizations in the Houston area, and he actively supports the charitable work of his staff.
Mr. Onorato is a member of the Greater Houston Port Bureau, Toastmasters International’s Youth Leadership Program and Gavel Club. Additionally, he is a Member at Large for the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals.
