Our Company

Our Mission

Watkins Express Freight is committed to providing affordable and reliable ground transportation safely to our customers through experienced personnel, accurate and timely information, and value-added customer support.

Our Family

In 1999, Thomas Watkins Jr bought his first truck to help accommodate the transportation needs of his first business, Specialty Wire.  A decade later after his two daughters graduated college and joined the company, they have grown operations from 9 trucks to 50.  Being a family owned and ran business, we take pride in have one of the largest and competitive transportations companies in Western Kentucky.

Our Growth

Since the beginning, we have strived to focus our business around organic growth. With a fleet size of 50 tractors and over 100 53’ dry van trailers, we have consistently increased our operating capacity by 15% every year since 2010
