Ralph B. Humphreys started R.B. Humphreys, Inc. in 1961. Originally from a farm family with a unbreakable work pedigree and a thrifty attitude, Ralph grew the company from one truck and trailer to over 75 tractors and 125 trailers. The company does business as a regional and long distance trucking company specializing in refrigerated products, and equipped to do flatbed loads, dry loads, and meat on rail trailers.
Sales are generated from 150-200 active customers located in a 400-mile radius of Westmoreland, NY.
In 2001, Ralph Humphreys retired and sold the company to Thorn Apple Valley, a group with extensive experience and a major meat company, specializing in finance, operations, logistics and warehousing. The new owners continued the expansion of the company and strived to keep the same attention to customer service that had been tradition under the Humphreys namesake.
The company's new terminal located at Exit 32 (Westmoreland, NY), off I 90, is a 30-acre parcel that provides needed trailer parking along with a garage and dock facilities to continue our growth. Our experienced mechanics have the tools to perform everything from oil changes to engine rebuilds and always maintain our vehicles in a safe and reliable manner.
