BIG ENOUGH TO MATTER.

SMALL ENOUGH TO CARE.

R. E. West's fleet is comprised of 127 late-model tractor trailers that serve both dry van and over-dimensional applications.  Our mix of equipment allows us to be flexible and rapidly respond to the unique challenges and opportunities that every load brings.  At the same time, our size affords our team the ability to connect with each other and our customers on a personal level.  In our offices people have names, not employee ID numbers.  We strive to create a work environment where the people matter and everyone is treated as family.
