Founded by Bob Hinkle, Southwestern Trucking has become known for its superior quality and service in the specialized heavy haul industry.

Since 1974
Today, Southwestern Trucking has grown into a large fleet that includes numerous specialized trucks and trailers capable of safely transporting your heaviest and most valuable machinery.

While we carry a variety of machinery, we specialize in the transport of paper machine rolls. Doing so allows us to ensure that we are providing the highest quality service to our most important customers - paper mills and the repair facilities that serve them.

For more than 15 years, Southwestern Trucking has operated on three core values:
Safe & Timely Transport. We understand that many of your loads are time sensitive and that your bottom line depends on your rolls and other machinery being delivered on time, all the time. We strive to ALWAYS deliver every load on your schedule & we always keep you informed about anything affecting your delivery.

We also value your investment in the equipment you trust us to haul. Every driver we hire is required to have at least three years of flatbed trucking experience and is specially trained. Most of our company drivers have been with us or more than five years.

Our safety record speaks for itself, but in the event of any accident, we carry a million dollars of cargo & liability insurance that has been secured specifically for the paper industry.

Superior Service. It’s our goal to consistently provide the best service in the industry. We do this in many ways - from maintaining the best & most well-trained staff to providing after-hours and weekend service. When you need us, we’re there.

You’ll find our company president’s contact information in this packet and on our website. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please call!

Exceptional Value. We consistently strive to provide the best possible pricing in a very competitive industry.

We invite you to see why we are the carrier of choice for many mills and repair facilities and look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
