The Evans Network of Companies celebrated 80 years in business in 2019!

Founded in 1939 by Albert Evans Sr. in Pottsville PA, The Evans Network of Companies has evolved over the last three decades from an asset heavy LTL trucking operation, into the largest asset light, independent Intermodal drayage provider in North America. The Company has primarily been focused on building its drayage platform through service expansion and acquisitions. As of today, the network has expanded operations to include brokerage, flatbed, truckload and LTL. The network includes 600 service center locations, more than 6,000 trucks and revenues in excess of 1.2 billion dollars. Expansion extends into employment as well. The Company now employs 400+ staff, half of whom are in the Schuylkill Haven corporate office.

It is our pledge to operate safely with uncompromising integrity, availing benefits to our customers, agent partners, independent contractors, employees and the community at large.

Our corporate mission is to continue to grow as a vital force in the transportation and logistics industry by providing superior service and support to our customers. We do the best job of meeting our customers’ requirements in the most efficient and cost-effective manner through implementation of strategic corporate goals, focusing on service, safety and security. We are a winning team of capable leaders, associates and agent partners who respond quickly and efficiently to change; adapting aggressively to the customers’ needs. Forging alliances with our customers to provide consistent, efficient and economical transportation services accomplishes our corporate goals and  objectives.
