We have always been & will always be a family business. When a person partners with The Evans Network, they become a part of our family. That was the belief of our founder, Albert L. Evans, Sr. Founded in 1939 in Pottsville PA, the company has evolved into the largest Intermodal Drayage provider in the United States. As of today, expanded operations include Truckload, Flatbed, LTL/Final Mile and transportation/logistics services.

Launched intermodal / port services offerings via the acquisition of Dorian, Inc. serving the port of Philadelphia.
Transportation Industry deregulation occurs. Evans, like many other trucking companies, expands its service offering and begins to offer full Truckload services utilizing Independent contractor drivers pulling dry van tailers. Evans creates “agency agreements” with other transportation companies whereby Evans provides working capital, billing, collecting and safety services to a few agent partners. Evans continues to focus on its LTL service offering (owned tractors and trailers, unionized teamster drivers, and brick and mortar docks) to handle freight.
Evans shifts strategic direction to full truckload services with the purchase of West Motor Freight and West Contract Services. WMF is a full TL van and flatbed business and WCS is an agency business model with approximately 10 agents providing full TL van and flatbed services.
