Try your business the Tray Way!


In 1988, Tommy Ray Chapman had a vision.

As a lifelong resident of Statesville, North Carolina, Tommy recognized the need of his community, and boy did he deliver.

He noticed that companies all over his county and abroad needed their freight moved in less than a full truck load, often within the same day.

This need not only belonged to the manufacturers in the community, but the hospitals, the blood banks.

In the early business days Mr. Chapman would utilize his long nights on the road to plan the future of his business, and he knew what he would need in order to meet and exceed the many needs of his customers.

With a strong work ethic passed down from Tommy Senior (his father), the sleepless days and nights came with no complaints from Tommy Ray, as he was building the business his good friend Dan Waugh would later name "Tray Transport."

The office staff here at Tray Transport has grown significantly as well over the years. It all started with one man and a phone,

and it has now grown to over 20 associates.

Between the 4 eldest office employees alone, there is a combined 86 years in the trucking industry.

Tommy credits his success to "The great people along the way...without associates willing to get out of bed in the middle

of the night, there is no way this business could have been as successful as it is today." He goes on to say that he feels fortunate to have found such devoted people to man not only the trucks, but the main office as well.
