Millis Transfer, Inc began hauling freight in 1944 and has since grown to more than 800 tractors, 3,500 trailers, and an additional 100 owner operators. They are a dry-van carrier with most of their freight originating and terminating in the Eastern half of the United States, although nationwide service is available.
The majority of their freight hauling is based on regional or dedicated customer contracts. They have multiple terminals and drop yard locations throughout the eastern half of the country.
In order to keep up with company growth, they opened the Millis Training Institute in 1989 in Kennesaw, GA to more easily recruit and train drivers. In 1994, they opened another training facility in Trenton, OH. Ten years later they opened another Richfield, WI in 2004.
Millis generally hires out of the Eastern half of the United States, with the exception of the far Northeast
