Hollis Transport Agency, Inc. was founded by Ron Hollis, Sr. and Jamie Hollis in 1979. Ron, Sr. started the business with a single truck delivering newspapers and theatre supplies in Northeast Georgia.
Hollis Transport expanded and began hauling computer forms, soft drinks, tires, auto parts, feed ingredients and more. Hollis Transport experienced many ups and downs in the LTL (less than truckload) business. Hollis had primarily worked for big LTL carriers and delivered their freight.
Ron Hollis, Sr. retired from the business and their son Brian Hollis took the trucking business by the reins in 1991 and soon their first company logo was established. Brian Hollis applied for their own trucking authority and a new direction for the company was born. Hollis Transport started hauling truckload freight and soon Brian picked up their first warehousing account. Brian loves telling the story of picking up that 1st account by running out of gas out on Lake Lanier. David Smith, a local business owner, towed Brian to his dock. Brian thanked him and when David refused payment, Brian offered his trucking services if he ever needed help. It wasn't long that David called him and needed warehouse space to serve the local poultry plants in Northeast Georgia. Hollis Transport and Distribution was born that day on Lake Lanier.
Today, Hollis Transport has customers all over the United States. They specialize in just-in-time truckload deliveries, warehousing, 48-state-truck-brokering, and they still work for many major players in the LTL Industry. Hollis Transport & Distribution moved to Flowery Branch in 2005. Their facility boasts 40 acres and this pushes their warehouse space to 500,000 square feet. There's plenty of room for more expansion in Flowery Branch and Brian plans on a steady growth pattern. Brian's company motto is "Get R Done!"
