In 1976, Daniel W Jackson started his trucking company out of Philadelphia, PA with one truck hauling petroleum products in the Tri-State area.  Through hard work and dedication, he was able to build a terminal in 1988 in Thorofare, NJ.

In 1989, Tri-State Transportation expanded operations to Wilmington, NC and Charleston, SC with over one hundred tractors and trailers on the road. After hauling petroleum products for 7 years in the Carolinas, the two southern terminals were divested, prioritizing the company's focus on the northeast US by utilizing one terminal and one office headquartered in Thorofare, NJ. From this facility, Tri-State Transportation has easy, economical access to all of the supply sources in PA, DE, MD and NJ. Stationed at this location are 85 state of the art pieces of road equipment suited to handle all of our customers' needs. This equipment is serviced in Tri-State's own shop with employees having over a combined 30 years of experience.

The Thorofare terminal uses only state of the art equipment. We also use an environmentally friendly oil/water separator in our full size wash bay for maintaining the cleanliness of our fleet.

After more than 30 years of customer service, Tri-State Transportation has grown to be known as one of the most reliable independent asphalt hauling companies in the area.

Tri-State Transportation Company prides itself on exceeding the expectations and needs of our customers.  Our office and operations are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to provide service, assist in emergencies, or simply answer any questions our customers may have.
