Started by a Trucker
for Truckers

If anyone understands the right way to run a trucking company, it’s us. That’s because we were founded by a trucker who set out to create a company that would live up to its promises. We’ve got a 60-year track record of taking good care of customers, seeing to it that our truck drivers enjoy a good living—and just being a great all-around place to do business with.

Being a part of James R. Smith has changed me for the better. It made me appreciate a more steady routine. Before, it was always day to day, never knowing what I was going to do. Now i'm on a dedicated route, so I know when I'm going to be off three months from now, because that's when I was off last year. I've never had that before.
