Company began in '86 as trucking equipment supplier

Named for a small town in south central Virginia, Abilene Motor Express was founded by its current owners Keith and Kolen Jones more 25 years ago in 1986. Since 1989, the company has been offering comprehensive freight brokerage services, and today, Abilene's fleet of more than 310 late-model tractors and over 1200 air-ride, 53-foot trailers, including over 200 temerature controlled units, provides reliable truckload and volume LTL services throughout North America.

Another shop addition benefits customers

Abilene Motor Express has again expanded the shop at its Richmond, Virginia headquarters. The shop now includes a total of 14 work bays, with expanded space for parts, a special wash bay for tractors and trailers, and a complete body shop. This expansion supports our company's already diligent repair and replacement program to keep Abilene tractors and trailers in top shape and on the road.

Customers see fewer breakdowns with Abilene's late model equipment. We trade every three years the average age of our equipment is 18 months.
