Welcome to American Transport, Inc.

Cargo Carriers Division

Cargo Carriers, a Lexington, NC-based carrier, was started in 1984. American Transport purchased the operation in August 2005, when the owner elected to retire. His office staff joined us at the time, and all three are still with us. In addition to its headquarters in Lexington, Cargo Carriers utilizes the services of agents in New Philadelphia, OH; Charleston, SC; Dolomite, AL; and Houston, TX. Cargo Carriers operates flatbeds and is primarily a steel hauler, although the SC office uses stepdecks and heavy-haul trailers to haul machinery and equipment. Their primary lanes are:
  • Western PA to TX, NC, and IN
  • Texas to the Great Lakes area
  • Birmingham, AL to Houston, TX and return
  • Charleston, SC local and regional
