For nearly 60 years, B.W. Mitchum, a bonded carrier, has been a leader in customized intermodal and domestic transport.
From day one, when the business began with one truck and one client, we've honored the promise BWM Family our founders made - to provide the absolute best in personal service. Today, B.W. Mitchum boasts an impressive fleet of 100 vehicles and the most advanced technology to ensure freight is handled safely and efficiently from start to finish, yet we are still a family run business, and still customer-centered. As testimony to our unrelenting client service, the company's very first customer, a milk processing plant for a large supermarket chain, is still with us. Our local clientele know we have the knowledge, ability and experience to handle any transportation need.
