A Letter from our President
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, I hope you will find it to be informative and helpful. I have been the President and Owner of Deep South Freight for more than 25 years. I am proud of who WE are and what WE represent in the trucking industry.

Bigger is not always better. We focus on our drivers. We believe that quality drivers provide the best customer service. We maintain low turnover by delivering to the drivers exactly what we promise. We are a regional contract carrier serving a wide range of customers with modern equipment. We aim to attract the best drivers by offering competitive pay, good benefits, consistent and predictable home time as well as a positive and supportive work environment.

Customers, our superior customer service is based on one simple principle: INTEGRITY. We are hoping to earn your trust by hauling the freight that is important to you and fits in our geographic footprint. I hope that you will give us an opportunity to show you who we are and how we do business. Our aim is to establish a relationship that will meet your current needs and those in the future.

Drivers, our success has always been a product of our Company Drivers and our Owner Operators. I believe the best way to service the needs of our customers is to listen to our drivers. At DSF, we know you by your name (not a random number). Talk to us to find out if our operation is a good fit for you and your lifestyle.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance. Thank you for your interest in Deep South Freight.

Deep South Freight is absolutely one of the best trucking company’s around! Not only do they take care of everything to ensure your order arrives on time, they keep you updated every step of the way. I never have to worry about anything when I ship with them, and that peace of mind is not something you find often.
