Thomas E. Keller Trucking, known as Keller Trucking, began in 1978, and we’ve come a long way since that single tractor and trailer. Over the years we’ve developed strong customer relationships by creating personalized solutions through our ability to adjust to the industry’s ever-changing demands. Because of our commitment to both our customers and our drivers, we’ve been able to grow our fleet to over 150 tractors and 450 trailers.
Despite this amazing growth in 40 years, we take pride in knowing each and every one of our drivers by name and having a “family-first” mentality with safety as our number one goal.
Staying true to these founding principles has helped us to be recognized as one of the “Best Fleets to Drive For,” by the TCA for the past three years. We listen to our drivers and recognize that home time and a steady, living wage is important. We always do our best to work with our drivers so they have the quality of life they deserve.
