Spears History

Celebrating 25 Years of Customer Service

Spears Transfer & Expediting, Inc.Spears Transfer was established in 1989. From its inception as a full truckload carrier, with a fleet of 9 tractor-trailers, it became aware that more was needed to satisfy a growing customer base, with superior services.

In 1994, the company was expanded and the dedicated expediting branch was founded. While maintaining a fleet of tractor-trailers to handle the full truckload business, a substantial investment was made in straight trucks and cargo vans to better service the growing demands of our customers. With continuing and resounding success in this venture the evidence was present that there was a need for a customer service driven expedited carrier.  In 1995, a name change was made to reflect the growing company and Spears Transfer & Expediting Incorporated came into being.

The associated warehousing division was born, once again, by the presence of the need for a superior storage, distribution and fulfillment facility and incorporated the ability to service our time sensitive customers with just in time supply needs.  Associated warehousing was founded in 1997. A year later crossroads logistics management, a brokerage division, was added to the spears transfer and expediting service repertoire.  Crossroads was later sold in 2001.

All entities are wholly owned and operated by Steven H. Spears, president and Nick Bartlett, Executive Vice President, who also owns Spears Investments, Inc., a real estate properties holding company, Assured Freight Solutions LLC, Scott Equipment Leasing and Spears Logistics Management, which form the holding company known as the Spears group.

With an unwavering commitment to service, the member companies of the Spears Group continually drive the industry and set the benchmark of excellence for our customers.
