AAA Cooper Transportation company logo

In the 1930's, John H. "Red" Dove began his association with the transportation industry by working with his father hauling logs from the Alabama woods to sawmills. In 1951, Mr. Dove bought an interest in P.C. White Truck Lines, and in 1955, he purchased the remaining ownership interest in P.C. White Truck Lines renaming it to AAA Motor Lines. His sons, Earl and Mack, received their degrees in Transportation from the University of Tennessee and joined the family firm between 1959 and 1962.

In 1973 Mack and Earl bought their father's interest in the Company and merged AAA Motor Lines and Cooper Transfer Company, Inc. The resulting company was called AAA Cooper Transportation.

During the 1980's AAA Cooper purchased Haynes Motor Lines which added nine new service centers. In January, 1989, Earl sold his 50% ownership in the company to Mack. In early 1990, ACT purchased nine service centers from the former Bowman Transportation Company. By 1989, annual sales had increased to $136 million.

Today, AAA Cooper Transportation remains a privately held asset based multi-regional transportation solutions provider offering less-than-truckload, truck load, dedicated contract carriage, brokerage, fleet maintenance, and international services.
