West Motor Freight hits the century mark

West Motor Freight, a truckload and special services trucking division of The Evans Network of Companies, has come a long way in its century-long history to now operating a large fleet of tractors in the eastern United States.

Phillip Jesse West, born in England in 1884, established West Motor in 1907. He started his freight company with horses and a single wagon in West Chester PA, which eventually expanded to the Pottstown and Boyertown regions. His son, Winfield, purchased the company's first two trucks in 1930, expanding service from the East Coast to the West Coast of the United States. Evans bought West Motor in the late 1980s, changing the company's focus froma transcontinental service provider to a regional carrier.

Boyertown PA-based West Motor Freight offers dedicated fleet, temperature-controlled, truckload, and flatbed services.
