We're glad you're here! If you click around, you can find lots of resources including our newsletters, job applications, and more about our history.

Over the last 50+ years, James R. Smith Trucking has come to set the standard in our industry, all while remaining family-owned and operated. Not only are James R. Smith's own children and grandchildren involved in operations, but we have quite a few husband-and-wife driving teams.

Our nationwide fleet of over 200 drivers has yet to find an item they couldn't haul. And many of them are able to drive their own trucks, thanks to the James R. Smith family of companies.

We're also committed to our customers in service and dependability. Our community has consistently honored us with the Cullman Times Readers' Choice Award.

We'd love to work for you. We invite you to contact our offices any time between 7:00am and 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.
