Our Humble Beginnings

Started with a Single Dump Truck to Serve Only Local Clients

The company has since grown and is still growing, with over 120 trucks and 140+ team members.

In 1983 in Lee County, Alabama

Thompson Carriers was formed by John and Beverly Thompson

The company was started with a single dump truck but has since grown into a diversified transportation company that is still proud to be family-owned and operated.

Specializing in all types of tanker truck hauling, Thompson Carriers also does heavy haul and continues to maintain a fleet of dump trucks. We are proud to be a leading tanker company that serves the entire United States, especially those in the Southeast.

If you are in the process of a big project and need help transporting dry or liquid goods, hauling heavy loads, or need dump trucks, we can help.

Thompson Carriers puts safety and service at the center of every single operation. We ensure that the materials, heavy loads, fuel, and more are delivered in a safe manner to protect your project materials, your project zone, local communities, and our drivers.
