For almost 70 years, B.W. Mitchum continues to be a leader in customized intermodal and domestic transportation while still maintaining the core principles you expect from a 3rd generation family business.  We pride ourselves on our reliable and personalized customer service. We provide whatever logistical support customers may need in addition to transportation, including warehousing, transloading, and brokerage services.


BW Mitchum was started in 1950. It was started with one truck and one client, and through the years, it has continued to honor the promise our founders made to provide the absolute best in personal service. The company was started by B.W. Mitchum and Norman Cooper. Since 1990, Ronnie Cooper has taken the helm and has continued to grow and advance the business to over 200 trucks and multiple terminals.


Safety isn’t something we just practice; in fact, it’s a part of who we are.  With this purpose in mind, drivers, dispatchers, and staff work together to create a culture of safety.
