The company started business in 1931 in Blackstone, Virginia. Originally known as 'The Transport Company' it began as a family owned business and continued that way for over 55 years. Epes Transport was purchased in September, 1987 by Epes Carriers, Inc. a newly established holding company owned by A.M. Bodford. Located in Greensboro, North Carolina, Epes Carriers is the largest private trucking company in North Carolina.
From November 1st through 30th, the Epes Greensboro terminal collected canned goods, cereals, rice and other non-perishable foods for the Backpack Ministry. The food will be packed into backpacks and delivered to families in need that have children attending local schools.
Once again, Epes Transport System has been awarded the prestigious 2017 North Carolina Smart Fleet Champion award, presented by North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center, which is affiliated with the NC State University School of Engineering. With the focus of the entire trucking industry on reducing our carbon footprint, Epes is again being recognized at the highest achievement level in the State of North Carolina by one of the most forward-thinking clean fuel organizations in the country.
The award was presented to Epes representatives David Leik and Mike Glynn, by Jeff Mann, General Manager of Go Triangle, which is the public transportation organization that is advancing alternative mass-transit initiatives in the greater Raleigh, NC area. The awards luncheon attendees hailed from not only the Southeast but across the United States, from as far away as California. The luncheon and awards were presented at the final session of the 2017 Sustainable Fleet Technology Conference and Expo, held in the downtown Raleigh Convention Center. Epes is pleased that our sustainable and carbon-footprint initiatives have again been recognized in such a public way.
In addition, Epes has also recently been recognized by the Green Fleets Forum, based in San Francisco, CA, as Honorable Mention as one of the Top 100 Fleets in America, for 2017.
