Wayne Reeder Trucking's humble beginnings began in 2002 when Wayne Reeder, Sr. purchased a 1994 Peterbilt to run containers out of the Port of Bienville near Bay Saint Louis, MS for Linea Peninsular Line. Soon thereafter, several additional tractors were added to handle the Linea volume in Mississippi and, in 2005, Wayne Reeder, Jr. moved from Los Angeles, CA and joined his Father with the day-to-day operations.
Hurricane Katrina brought significant changes to the residents and businesses throughout the Gulf Region in August 2005. Over thirty-two feet of water was dumped on the terminal operations in Bay Saint Louis. Wayne Reeder Trucking's operation became mobile operating from a driver's residence in the woods north of I-10 along with seventeen other folks and a few dogs trying to stay dry. During the catastrophe, our tractors were parked anywhere a 'safe haven' could be found. After the floodwaters had subsided, Wayne followed Linea's Captain (Owner of Linea) to the beautiful beaches of Panama City, Florida. Determined to keep freight moving, Reeder tractors were being fueled direct from the Linea ships! Our initial Panama City office was based in a three-story FEMA condo on Panama City Beach. Wayne Reeder, Jr. established office using an outdoor patio table in the condo and kept the freight moving from Linea's new Panama City Port location. In 2006 and soon after things began to return to normal, Reeder purchased a 1925 two-story house in Lynn Haven, FL and established routine operations in that location. It's never been easy, but great accomplishments seldom are easy. In 2011, Wayne Reeder Trucking, now under the leadership of Wayne Reeder, Jr., moved into our current location at 4032 West 23rd Court in Panama City, FL and (after renovations from the 1970's decor) celebrated our "Grand Opening" in August 2012.
Currently, Wayne Reeder Trucking in Panama City, FL operates fifteen late-model Volvo tractors serving Linea Peninsular Line throughout the United States and Canada. In October 2014, Wayne Reeder Trucking expanded our intermodal operations to Atlanta, GA with the opening of our intermodal operations center. Over the next thirty-six months, Wayne Reeder Trucking plans on aggressive expansion into other major intermodal markets including Savannah, Charleston, Jacksonville, Mobile, New Orleans, Norfolk, Houston and other inland terminal locations. We will continue our successful growth plans by Driving Solutions and Delivering Results!
