WHO WE ARE
After 40 years and three generations, Edwards Transportation remains a family-owned business dedicated to serving our valued trucking customers. While we continue our focus as a refrigerated carrier, we have evolved our business to include dry freight, brokerage services, and door-to-door logistics between the US and Mexico.
Incorporating two terminal locations in East Prairie, MO, and Laredo, TX has enabled Edwards to expand our offerings to additional services and a wide-ranging customer base. We also maintain warehousing space at our Laredo location, with cross docking and cold storage transfer. Our corporate structure allows us to expedite any inbound or outbound freight, on an export or import basis.
PREMIUM QUALITY EQUIPMENT
We’re committed to delivering on our promise to eliminate downtime by implementing the best equipment on the road, averaging less than two years’ old.
Edwards trucks operate on trading schedules that enable us to keep the best-operating trucks on the road. We’ve implemented the latest technology in auxiliary power units (APU) and EPA compliant systems within the truck’s engines to maximize mileage and reduce fuel consumption. Extended warranties purchased keep downtime to a minimum by offering a national database of certified maintenance facilities.
Our 53-foot refrigerated trailers feature mainly Thermo King Units. By only operating equipment that’s five years’ old or less, we can safely work in any state and still remain in EPA compliance. Implementing new designs in aerodynamics and such as trailer skirting we are reducing emissions and lessening our carbon footprint.
Edwards Transportation Company was founded in the early 1980s as a father-son joint effort. From the beginning, our entire team has been dedicated to serving the needs of our customers and business associates. We’ve experienced many changes throughout the years in the trucking industry, from regulation and fuel pricing to equipment costs and economic downturns. Still, Edwards has survived and has thrived due to our strict and concise ways of doing business. Though tough, we kept our promise to our employees and our customers that reflect in our reputation today.
DEDICATION TO SAFETY AND SECURITY
Companies must choose wisely when making the business decision to hire the right refrigerated carrier. Equipment age, on-time ratio, and compliance/safety are some of the most important factors for you – therefore, they are for us. Safety and security is a top concern at Edwards Transportation, so we incorporate FSMA compliance for food safety and temperature monitoring systems. Our operations are also software-driven, enabling us to be the most up-to-date and on-time carrier for frozen and cold products.
OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS
We’re honored to service such reputable companies as Sunset Mastronardi, Pilgrims Pride, Williams Sausage, Fuji, Meatviende, Beardstown Pork, Farbest Foods, and Ottuma Port JBS. Edwards is constantly striving to expand our customer base as a refrigerated carrier, as well as a provider of dry freight, brokerage services, and door-to-door logistics.
Please allow Edwards to serve your supply chain management needs. We keep our customers rolling by committing ourselves to knowledge, integrity, safety, and satisfaction. You can count on us for all of your transportation and logistics solutions.
