Howard Sheppard, Inc.

  • Trucking


Howard Sheppard was always fascinated with trucks even as a young boy and in 1943 he bought his first truck to haul sand and gravel. In the mid-1940s he earned about $2.40 for a load. Mr. Sheppard hauled whatever needed to be hauled in the area. Soon he was able to purchase another truck. In 1950 he married Barbara Holmes, and with her help, the company began to grow. They began to build a strong reputation as the reliable source for transporting kaolin. As the company continued to grow, it began to expand into other industries including chemicals, frozen poultry, wood products, agriculture, consumer goods, concrete beams, and other raw materials. While it’s primarily served the Southeast, Howard Sheppard has hauled in all 48 contiguous states.
