A LEGACY OF DRIVE
Hines Trucking is the most experienced, innovative, and customer-service oriented transportation operation in the region. We have worked with the saw mill, paper mill, and chip mill industries since 1936. Because of our tailored equipment specs, our trucks can haul more product per load than other carriers. Our trucks are equipped with state-of-the-art communication and tracking systems, which allow for immediate contact with our trucks when information needs to be exchanged between dispatchers and drivers. Hines Trucking is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for our customers.
THE HINES STORY
On April 22, 1976, the partnership was incorporated into J.D. & Billy Hines Trucking, Inc. Shortly after in 1979, HTI was awarded its first chip hauling contract. Because of their follow-through and superior customer service, many more contracts followed. The chip-haul/short-haul division quickly grew to 140 trucks and served southeast Oklahoma, northeast Texas, south Arkansas, and north Louisiana. “It really is a testament to our people and to the power of keeping our word,” Billy said. “Our clients have always come first, which is why we started offering chip hauling in the first place.”
In a continued season of expansion, Hines Trucking acquired the chip haul division of Harvest Haul, Inc. of Magnolia, Mississippi in 2012. Shortly after, in 2014, HTI moved to the Old Fernwood Industrial Park with adequate office and maintenance space. “Reflecting on all this growth only makes me–and our entire executive team–more thankful for the family environment and legacy of trust here at Hines.” The company still operates from this campus today with the addition of more than 50 offices, truck yards, and maintenance facilities throughout the Southeast.
