Our company's story begins in 1969. It was then that our founder and CEO R. E. "Bob" West bought his first truck. Only 16 at the time, Bob founded R. E. West Inc. on the foundations of hardwork, good service, fair prices, and fair play. Over three decades later, R. E. West Inc. has grown from its humble beginnings into a nationally recognized contract and dedicated carrier. While the fleet has grown and you can now see our black trucks rolling on the highways throughout the entire United States and Canada, the company remains family owned and operated; and, the principles upon which it was founded remain.
