WEST Motor Freight’s roots go back for more than 100 years, unlike many of today’s truckload carriers that have sprung up as a result of deregulation in 1980. The original founder began hauling freight by horse and wagon in 1907. He started a philosophy of commitment that has become a tradition at WEST.
In 1988, that tradition passed to the company’s present owner, Albert L. Evans Jr., and his family. The Evans family has tradition of their own as founders of Evans Delivery Company, which was started by Albert Evans, Sr. in Pottsville, in 1939.
Today, under the leadership of CEO, Matthew Bowen Bates, tradition and a strong commitment to customers and employees are the hallmarks of WEST Motor Freight.

WEST Motor Freight has been successful in developing a solid base of “Core Customers” who rely on consistent, reliable service provided by professional company drivers and independent contractors, using modern equipment aided by sophisticated computer dispatch systems and operated by experienced personnel, most of whom came from the driving ranks.
