ACME Co. was founded over 200 years ago, at the height of hot-air balloon popularity. Over the past two centuries we have perfected the art and science of shipping valuable cargo — whether it be your products, employees or anything else that can fit in a balloon basket — safely over relatively short distances on good-weather days.
Why hot air balloon transport?
In this age of excessive carbon emissions, noise pollution and unsustainable business practices, companies are searching for tried-and-true solutions that are socially responsible.
Hot air balloon transport is currently one of the hottest of these solutions — and that’s not just a lot of hot air. Shipping via balloon transport is all the rage in the corporate world.
This is because hot air balloon transport is a less expensive alternative to traditional shipping methods and provides award-winning reliability, safety and eco-friendliness.
By utilizing our balloon transport services, you can slash your shipping costs, increase reliability and visibility… and get a major brand lift.
How we do it
We use only top-of-the-line modern hot air balloons. Each balloon is federally inspected on a regular basis to ensure it meets — and exceeds — all EPA, USDA, FDA and FTC guidelines and mandates.
Additionally, we hire only the best pilots, each having a minimum of 750 logged flight hours and a completely unblemished safety record.
Your package is thermo sealed in a padded shipping crate, to ensure it arrives in as good a condition as when you sent it — even if a balloon has a rough landing (not that they ever do!).
With over 200 years in the industry, ACME Hot Air Balloon Transport Services has developed ultra-efficient shipping systems that guarantee your shipment will arrive on schedule. With our transport services, you never have to worry about late or lost packages.
We deliver on-time, everytime (weather-permitting, of course).
Meet the People that Make it Happen
Jack Labulle, CEO/President
Jack first took to the skies in a hot air balloon as a child, and immediately fell in love with it. In college, he often pondered whether hot air ballooning had any modern-day practical application. Then one day he witnessed an ACME balloon floating over campus on a delivery run, and he knew he had found his calling.
He immediately switched his major to hot air balloon transport science and within 3 years graduated with honors. He was fortunate to land a job with ACME straight out of school, initially working in the mail room and working his way up the corporate ladder to the CEO position.
When not working, Jack enjoys spending time with his wife and their loyal dog, Sparky.
Yuki Labulle, Chief Operating Officer
Yuki spent 12 years in the U.S. Air Force before retiring and joining ACME as COO. She is a self-proclaimed master of air transport logistics, and loves the challenge of ensuring your packages always get delivered to the right place at the right time.
When she’s not planning strategic shipping routes and schedules, Yuki enjoys spending time with her husband and their dog.
Lou Cortez, Chief Flight Engineer
After honorably serving 7 years as a Navy Flight Engineer, Lou decided to pursue his passion for hot air balloon transport in the private sector. He has worked at ACME ever since, managing flight operations of our entire fleet of balloons, and proudly boasts a 100% safety record.
Jayce Williamson, Dispatcher
Jayce has had a love for logistics ever since he was 5 years old, when he would build mock shipping operations with his building blocks and toy trucks and airplanes. He always dreamed of including hot air balloons in his transport empires, and at ACME he is now realizing that dream.
Neil Darzi, Seamster
Neil started sewing as he bootstrapped his way through college, never seeming to have quite enough money for clothing — so he started making his own. But he had bigger dreams… and now he sews BIG. Each balloon is sewn together with about 1800 sq. ft. of fabric and 3 miles of thread!
Velma Verevka, Rope Engineer
Velma wrote her thesis on string theory in college, but also got a business degree. She interned at a cable company, to learn the ropes of business operation. Then she jumped on a chance to work at her dream career: hot air balloon transport. She often gets tied up at work — working long hours — but loves every minute of it.
