In 1943 Howard Sheppard, Inc. started hauling crude kaolin for the clay industry. Since that beginning, we have grown into a transportation, warehouse and logistics expert with over 500 employees. In addition to serving the Southeast, we also haul kaolin (liquid, dry, and bagged) products, sodium silicate, chemicals, concrete beams/pilings, and dry van freight to all 48 states.
“Howard Sheppard is one of the most reliable trucking companies that we work with. We use their container division for timely deliveries to the port, their bulk service to better serve some of our larger customers that need just in time delivery & we use their dry vans to bring in supplies for our company. Their dispatchers are always easy to reach and communicate our needs to. They are a pleasure to work with.”
Chris Durden - Production Manager, Burgess Pigment Co.
“Howard Sheppard, Inc. is the kind of company we like to deal with. They're not too small or too large, and they're open to changes to get the job done right. They're completely flexible, react quickly and are always on top of a situation. We use all of their motor transport services throughout our organization. They are one of our most valued strategic partners."
