Welborn Transport Inc.

By: Bubbajunk.com

The company was founded in 1987 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which is located 55 miles southwest of Birmingham; a vibrant city and home to many of the nation's leading manufacturing concerns, Tuscaloosa has deep roots in Native American history and has some of the richest natural resources in the Southeast. Bordering the Black Warrior River is the University of Alabama. It has grown to being recognized as a commercial hub for many industries but Tuscaloosa has managed to maintain a sense of community and prides itself in educational and cultural opportunities.

Since Tuscaloosa was home to many national manufacturing concerns and with a proximity to serving the iron and steel industry as well (located in Birmingham), this seemed like the prefect location to start a flatbed trucking company and that is exactly what Steven Rumsey, the founder and C.E.O. of Welborn Transport did. Another great advantage the location had was it had great benefits for the community at large so was a good place in which to raise a family- a fact that most employees would consider before taking up a job. Welborn Transport is dedicated to top-flight service and professionalism; the company has seen its commitment pay off as well: growing, as it has, from a small forty-truck operation in the eighties to over 250 power units today.    

Boyd Bros. Transportation is the parent company and Welborn Transport Inc. has been in the trucking business with it for over 50 years as a Flatbed Carrier servicing approximately 26 states, primarily the Southeast, the Midwest, the Southwest and the lower portion of the East Coast.  

Their primary shipments consist of roofing, building material products, cast iron and steel pipe, and all types of iron and steel products and the company offers many different opportunities at WTI Transport. Among the many services provided are Short Haul, Regional and Long Haul opportunities for Owner Operators as well as Company Drivers who are made the offer of a very attractive Lease-Purchase program if one of them may want to own their own truck.  

A trucking company that has a family atmosphere and a place where associates are treated as persons is what WTI has to offer, all year through.
