QUALITY & CORE VALUESOutstanding service is the name of the game

You’re going to like working with James R. Smith. That’s because this company was set up with truck drivers in mind — by a truck driver. In fact, James R. Smith’s own children and grandchildren are still involved in operations here. So, you’ll find the atmosphere more like a large extended family, instead of a giant impersonal corporation.

That translates into a company that looks out for everyone: customers, support staff, and the men and women on the road. That’s the way it’s been for over 65 years — and that’s the way we like it. In fact, our community has consistently honored us with the Cullman Times Readers Choice Award because of how we do business.
