Barnes Continues to Grow


Our company has been most fortunate to have experienced an excellent level of increased business in recent months.


We have two new promising accounts for dry van; Georgia Pacific outbound from Rincon, GA (Savannah area) and Big Lots outbound from their Tremont, PA DC.


Drayage continues to be strong and we intend to significantly grow this division.


Upcoming expansion includes the addition of service at the Port of Baltimore and an establishment of a direct relationship with Maersk Lines, one of the world’s largest container shipping companies.


An effort to diversify our step deck customer base is underway.


Thank you to the entire Barnes team for supporting our customer’s needs.
