Reliability is the cornerstone of the transportation industry, and CIMA Logistics is committed to being a reliable partner for your business. To us, reliability means safety, dependability, and communication. We set aggressive safety standards for ourselves, as well as our driver partners.
We are a family-owned and operated logistics company that prides itself on ethical standards, safe practices, and exceeding customer expectations. The culture and values of our family literally created the blueprint for how we operate CIMA Logistics.
- Safety and integrity are at the forefront of what we do. It is critical that our operations are safe for our drivers, as well as the communities we service. We always look to enhance our operations by recruiting great people and utilizing the latest technology. We take a proactive approach to safety and service, which means we constantly look for opportunities to improve while setting our own high standards.
Advanced technology gives us the ability to be a safer, more efficient transportation company. We utilize real-time logging technology to manage loads, daily reporting technology to assess the safety of our drivers, and efficient dispatch technology to ensure loads are delivered in a timely fashion.
- Real-time ELD – Keeping track of our drivers’ wellbeing, and the safety of our vehicles is crucial to running an efficient operation. Real-time ELD feedback keeps us in the loop and simplifies load management on a minute-by-minute basis.
- SAMBASafety – SAMBASafety reporting gives us daily MVR monitoring abilities and Clearinghouse updates. With the most comprehensive driver profiles in the market, SAMBA gives us access to real-time data to analyze commercial driver and motor carrier performance.
- Dispatch Technology – We utilize ProTransport for our dispatch operation. This technology makes it easy to assign loads to drivers as soon they are awarded to CIMA, reducing lead time and increasing efficiency.
The safety of our team members and the safety of our community come first, which is why we take a proactive approach with our standards and regulatory compliances.
Our clients have recognized CIMA for high quality and safety standards. Energy leaders have commended our safety standards at the job site, and our ability to consistently meet quotas. It’s our ability to sustain high safety standards while delivering loads on time that has led to CIMA’s expansion and new business acquisitions.
Industry regulators agree with our clients. We always invite clients to view our superb SAFER Record with the FMCSA. To achieve this high safety standard, we staff an internal DOT compliance team and utilize real-time reporting technology.
CIMA Logistics is an asset-based carrier that also works with exceptional partners to deliver loads in a safe, timely fashion. We perform internal inspections of our fleet to ensure that our vehicles are safe, well-maintained, and compliant with DOT standards.
- Our drivers adhere to these high standards as well, keeping their vehicles well maintained and presentable. Our drivers are required to have at least 3 years of experience driving, and at least a year of experience transporting silica sand.
“CIMA” is a reference to the Pinnacle, and that’s exactly what we strive to help our customers achieve- the logistics company that is at the top of the industry, leading the way in safety and ethical standards, helping you to achieve the pinnacle of your success!
CIMA Logistics was officially established in 2018, but the roots of the company date back to 2008, when Manuel Molina began operating MM Transport. Integrity and quality service were the backbone of MM Transport, and it was Manuel’s partner, Olga Lopez, that aided in the transformation of the company. Olga’s 30 years of experience in banking and finance gave her the knowledge and prowess to expand the operation.
In 2018, Olga acquired MM Transport and established CIMA Logistics, a minority and woman owned logistics company with a mission to provide logistics services in the most professional and proactive manner possible. Since its inception, CIMA has grown from a fleet of 5 trucks to a fleet of 100.
CIMA is a family-owned and operated company. As the business has grown, Olga’s son and daughter, Blake and Emily Nava, have joined the leadership team as the Financial Manager and the Office Operations Manager, respectively. CIMA’s business operations are founded on the same ethical backbone as CIMA’s family. Our team is proud of its honesty, work ethic, and resiliency.
While the operations of CIMA have expanded, so has the company’s mission. CIMA strives to empower other minority – and women owned businesses – with resources and opportunities through partnerships with the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and The Hispanic 100.
Our company has certifications both as a diverse minority and woman owned business. Industry specific certifications are also important to us in demonstrating technical expertise.

Olga Lopez leads CIMA Logistics as the Executive Director, where she has created a culture that focuses on safety and integrity, expanding the business from a fleet of 5 trucks to a fleet of 100.
Olga’s background in banking has not only given her strong financial expertise, but during her 30 years in the industry, she also built outstanding leadership skills, managing over 750+ staff members. Strategic planning, employee engagement, and financial management are core areas of expertise for CIMA’s Executive Director.
Olga’s leadership and business acumen culminated in 2017 when she was named as one of the Top 10 Corporate Executives by Latina Style Inc. for her outstanding leadership, business impact, mentoring and dedication. She joined other honorees from companies such as American Airlines, Walmart, and Google.
Olga has used that expertise and momentum to create CIMA Logistics, a growing logistics company with industry-leading safety standards. As CIMA continues to grow and thrive, Olga continues to create opportunities for Latina women in the DFW community via her relationships with the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and The Hispanic 100.
Since late 2018, Blake Nava has been a vital part of the CIMA Logistics team, where he oversees the financial operations, safety operations, and company partnerships. Blake is responsible for the accounting and finance departments, as well as maintaining the high regulatory standards that have helped CIMA excel.
Internships with ConocoPhillips, XTO Energy, and Caffey Group gave Blake practical experience as he pursued his college education at the University of Oklahoma. After completing his degree in Energy Management & Finance, Blake joined Case Energy Partners as an acquisition associate, where he gained industry experience.
In December of 2018, Blake joined his family at CIMA Logistics, where he now serves as a managing partner. Blake intends on using his background in business management, finance, and law to continue growing CIMA into a world-class logistics provider. Blake is committed to creating value for CIMA, as well as his community, through strategic partnerships within the energy industry.

His in-depth knowledge of specialized transportation equipment, and his extensive safety training are instrumental in maintaining and exceeding safety standards. His expertise allows CIMA to maintain a well-equipped and reliable fleet that consistently delivers on time.
An immigrant from El Salvador, Manny started his career with Swift Transportation as a driver in 2005. His experience in the transportation industry led him to fulfilling his dream of entrepreneurship. He quickly established his own business as an owner-operator. He acquired drives to work for his company that transported goods across several industries, including over-the-road, construction, retail, and oil & gas.
As Office Operations Manager for CIMA, Emily oversees the Dispatch Team of 10 that is responsible for effective communication with vendors and drivers to provide on-time deliveries.

Our business leadership believes that we can have a positive impact in the communities in which we operate. Our team members create that impact with time and donations for local religious and educational organizations.
Further, as a minority and woman-owned business, we strive to create opportunities for others who come from diverse backgrounds.
Close relationships with the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and The Hispanic 100 give us the ability to empower Latina women with leadership and economic opportunities. As our business continues to grow, we are committed to elevating the communities of Dallas-Fort Worth and West Texas.
