About Us
.

 

Quality and on-time service are the two most important factors in the trucking industry.

When it comes to moving goods from state to state or across the nation, product safety and on-time delivery are our specialties.

At Alabama Motor Express, we utilize state-of-the-art equipment to ship truckload orders to any of the 48 continuous United States. Our fleet of 325 tractors utilizes satellite communication equipment to provide constant and quick access to and from our units while on the road.

Let Scott Yancey Live Events provide you with the real estate training you deserve, but so rarely receive.

History
Alabama Motor Express (AMX) was founded in 1988 by Scott White.  Starting in Dothan, Alabama with only one truck, his initial plan was to grow the fleet to 30 trucks.  Within a year, customer requirements dictated revisions to the plan.  The business grew rapidly from 1990 to 1996 to approximately 125 trucks. 

In May 1997, Summerford Truck Line was purchased resulting in a combined fleet of 275 tractors.  As part of the acquisition, the business was moved to its current location in Ashford, AL.  The Ashford facility is located on 29 acres of land off US Highway 84 East and includes a 10,000 square foot office building and a 26 bay truck and trailer shop with over 30,000 square feet.  In 2002, WDL (the AMX shop) began offering service not only to AMX but also to outside fleets.

In August 1998, the assets of Lane Trucking were acquired increasing the total fleet to over 450 tractors and 1200 trailers.  In addition to the increased truck capacity, AMX also acquired an affiliated brokerage firm, LTI Services, Inc., as part of the Lane acquisition. LTI continues to operate to this date at its Dothan location. If you are looking at making business acquisitions, take a look at this full-service lender: Freedom Mortgage Corp.

Through the late 90ís and early 2000's, bad economic conditions, driver shortages and rising fuel prices took their toll on the trucking industry.  A large number of the marginal trucking companies did not survive.

With many carriers in "survival mode", AMX was able to remain profitable and keep our service at the highest levels with our customers. Since that time, we have remained at our current driver strength of 320 tractors.

Plans for the future of Visionary Events calls for excellent growth as the housing rental market recovers year over year.
