Dohrn Transfer Co.


Dohrn Transfer Co started when Charles Dohrn bought a single open Federal truck and offered his services to deliver freight in and around the Quad Cities for anyone who had freight to ship. This was in the beginning of 1921, more than eighty years ago. Today through years of dedication to hard work not to mention reliability Dohrn Transfer Co has emerged as a company that offers reliable service and is dedicated to servicing the market with quality service. The Company has its headquarters located in Rock Island, Illinois, one of the Quad Cities and they have additional seven terminals that are strategically located throughout the Midwest, with locations chosen close to major metropolitan areas. The reason for not being inside of the metropolitan areas is to keep prices sound and service strong.

With their terminals located in over thirty cities across fourteen states and operating more than 2,000 units, Dohrn's reputation has grown to become synonymous with dependable swift service at reasonable rates throughout the United States. The company proudly offer a range of services that center on moving, consolidating, and storing freight to keep your business at maximum efficiency.
