This motor carrier has a 48 statewide operation that is committed to the promise to safely deliver clients’ freights, striving for the highest level of customer satisfaction. WH Trucking specializes in regional and short haul delivery of non-hazardous dry freight, with the capacity to drop 53 foot dry van trailers for dedicated accounts.

WH Trucking was established in May of 2015 by owner Carlo White, who presently serves as President and CEO of the company. WH Trucking headquarters is located in Duncan, South Carolina, conveniently located right off of I-85. There is an 8,800 square foot warehouse onsite, which includes a 35 door motor freight terminal. Company owned assets currently consist of 15 semi-trucks (day cabs and sleepers) with further growth plans under way.

WH Trucking’s rapid growth has been a direct result of an introduction to Benore Logistics Systems, Inc. through BMW’s supplier diversity network. The partnership with Benore started with the simple goal of improving the productivity within a single local lane. WH Trucking’s relationship with Benore has proven to be very beneficial resulting in a 33% increase in productivity.

WH Trucking has implemented at least four best practices by benchmarking with Benore, which is helping WH Trucking deliver exceptional service, on time and within budget. Since the partnership began, WH Trucking has doubled the number of trucks dedicated to serving Benore allowing WH Trucking to expand its fleet and move into a larger terminal to continue serving the market with expanded capacity. WH Trucking will continue to find new opportunities to grow their business with great partners like Benore Trucking Inc.
