Coastal Transport Inc.


Coastal Transport inc. has its roots in the Southeast parts of the country with a history any company would boast of. Almost thirty years after being founded by Boise Federwitch, the company saw a change in ownership and also in the focus of the company. The company became the first carrier to haul imported steel, a new commodity to Savannah's ports.  

In 1986 Comcar Industries purchased Coastal Transport making Coastal the flatbed carrier of Comcar with their headquarters in Savannah, Georgia. Comcar Industries evolved from a Commercial Carrier Corporation, a company that began hauling cement in 1953 and has acquired the status of an institution in the nationwide trucking industry.
It was during the fourth quarter of 1997 that Coastal acquired its 500th tuck, making it one of the largest privately owned and operated flatbed carriers in the nation. Coastal presently operates out of nine terminal facilities spread throughout the Southeastern United States and operates from Texas to Chicago and all points to the east. Its company has some new corporate facilities that offer 12,000 square feet of office space for centralized customer service and a full support staff.

Growth has come slowly though steadily to Coastal Transport Inc including a merger of the Coastal, Kennedy Trucking, and Specialized Transport divisions into the single operating company Now one of the 15th largest trucking groups in the US, Comcar Industries has five trucking firms situated across the nation, offering strategically-located terminals to haul virtually any commodity, anywhere in the United States -- but that's not all.
