KLLM Transport Services

KLLM Transport Services company logo

KLLM as KLM, Inc. in 1963, under the ownership of Tom I. Kobuke, W.J. Liles, B.C. Lee, and Henry Moudy, Sr. KLLM Transport Services, LLC. ("KLLM") was originally a truck brokerage whose primary business was handling exempt commodities, with main traffic arteries across the southern United States. As early as 1972, KLLM began hauling regulated commodities and received General Authority from the Interstate Commerce Commission in July, 1982.

KLLM began its own fleet of equipment in 1967 with the purchase of three (3) tractor-trailer combinations. Today, KLLM offers OTR, Regional and Dedicated services to a major portion of 48 states and Mexico on a daily basis. KLLM's entire fleet of trailers is refrigerated, serving the needs of both dry freight customers and those requiring temperature controlled services.

Today, KLLM hauls both temperature-controlled and dry commodities such as food, medical supplies, paper products, chemicals and cosmetics. Services include over-the-road (OTR) long haul, regional transportation, dedicated, intermodal and logistics. KLLM's corporate offices are in Jackson, Mississippi.
