In 1931, William W. Ward started the company with 1 truck and 2 guys (1 being himself). Today the company is 4 generations deep and has grown to a fleet of 600+ trucks handling 5000+ shipments a day to over 10,000 customers.
Our direct LTL footprint in the Mid-Atlantic consists of 19 service centers and close to 1600 employees throughout 7 states, but we are also more than just a trucking company. We also offer logistics solutions through warehousing, brokerage, and TMS products.
The fourth generation (Bill Jr., Adam, David and James) continue to drive the company forward in ways so we can not only continue to provide exceptional customer service but to also develop new products and services that will keep Ward in the front of the pack of industry leaders.
After 88 years of being in business, you can still talk to someone whose name is on the side of the truck!
