Minority Business Enterprise Spotlight: WH Trucking, LLC

Posted by: Nika White on Monday, May 23, 2016

The Greenville Chamber’s Minority Business Accelerator Program helps accelerate the development of high potential minority business enterprises (MBEs) to strengthen and expand the regional minority entrepreneurial community. Occasionally, we spotlight the participating companies and their success stories.

WH Trucking, LLC is a veteran owned, certified minority business enterprise, operating 48 states motor carrier committed to the promise to safely deliver clients’ freights securely and satisfactorily. WH Trucking specializes in regional and short haul delivery of non-hazardous dry freight with the capacity to drop 53ft dry van trailers for dedicated accounts. WH Trucking headquarters is located in Duncan, SC with an 8,800 square foot warehouse to include 35 door motor freight terminal conveniently located right off of I-85. Company owned assets currently consist of 15 semi-trucks (day cabs and sleepers) with further growth plans under way. WH Trucking was established in May of 2015 by owner Carlo White, who presently serves as President and CEO of the company.

WH Trucking’s rapid growth was a result of an introduction to Benore Logistic Systems though BMW’s supplier diversity department by way of the Greenville Chamber’s Minority Business Accelerator Program. White credits the Greenville Chamber’s MBA Program for being the catalyst for creating a roadmap and inspiration to develop this new company under WH Holdings. The partnership with Benore started with the simple goal of improving the productivity within a single local lane. WH Trucking’s relationship with Benore has proven beneficial with an increase in productivity by 33%. WH Trucking has implemented at least four best practices learned through the Benore relationship, which is helping WH Trucking to deliver exceptional service, on time and within budget. Since the partnership began, WH Trucking has doubled the number of trucks dedicated to serving Benore allowing WH Trucking to expand its fleet and move into a larger terminal to continue serving the market with expanded capacity.

The company will celebrate its one year anniversary and new facility grand opening on June 7th from 11 am to 12 noon at its headquarters located at 610 Leonard Rd., Duncan, SC 29334. Join the WH Trucking team for lunch, special announcements, a facility tour, and a ribbon cutting celebration to learn about the company’s vision for continued expansion. RSVP by June 1 to info@whtrucks.com
