75+ Years in Business
Our humble beginnings started in 1941 when we operated just 3 trucks and 3 trailers delivering coal and bricks in central PA. Today we operate a fleet of 400 trucks and 1200 trailers throughout the US and Canada safely traveling over 31 million miles per year. We now offer logistics, brokerage and warehousing services through affiliated companies and together we manage over 85,000 transactions per year. From paper log books and pay phones in our early days, to electronic logs, on board computer tracking and work assignment systems our company has evolved into a leader in the logistics industry.
Asset based motor carriers are the gold standard in motor carrier transportation. Watsontown Trucking Company is one of them! Our fleet of trucks and trailers are all company owned and operated and managed through our corporate operations center in Milton, PA and regional operations centers in Roanoke, VA and Columbus, OH. We operate a full-service maintenance facility in Milton, PA employing over 40 technicians who keep our trucks operating safely and efficiently.
Our company boasts one of the lowest employee turnover rates in the trucking industry. 55 drivers, technicians, and staff have over 10 years service with the company and 11 have over 20 years service. Many of our management employees started with the company as entry level customer service reps or as truck drivers and maintenance technicians and were promoted because of their commitment and dedication to the company.
Our employees and fleet of trucks are some of the safest on the highways. Our fleet safety scores are near the top of the FMSCA ranking system. 22 of our drivers have driven over 1 million miles accident free and 5 have driven over 2 million miles accident free. The company ownership has invested over $10 million dollars in new rolling stock over the past three years. We have also invested $2 million dollars in a new 11 bay truck shop in Milton, PA to help keep our trucks running safely and efficiently.
