LEADERSHIP

A journey into trucking.

TOMMY HODGES | CHAIRMAN

Tommy Hodges knows what it's like to "sit in the driver's seat" when it comes to warehousing and trucking. With a humble start to his career in 1965, his "journey" into trucking began on a Dock at Tennessee Carolina Transportation (TCT) as a driver. After two years of military service in Vietnam, it was right back to the trucking industry with a management position with TCT as a dock supervisor/dispatcher. In 1976, a company change was made and Hodges transitioned to Spector Freight Systems as a salesman.

Since then, Hodges has subsequently held various positions in the transportation industry over the years, from sales manager, terminal manager, all the way to Vice President of Sales, President, and finally Owner. He has worked in the industry virtually all of his working life, and to this day does it because he loves it.

He stays very involved in the trucking industry through several professional organizations. He has served as Chairman of the Tennessee Trucking Association with two separate terms and currently services as the President of the Tennessee Trucking Foundation. In addition, he has served as Chairman of the American Trucking Association, Chairman of the Chairman's Membership Sub-committee, and Past Chairman of the Small Carrier Committee. He also serves on the executive committee of Southern Motor Carriers (SMC3) in Atlanta, GA.

In the community, Hodges is a former Chairman of the Tennessee Children's Home in Spring Hill, TN.
