Since Floyd Wright started with one truck in 1969, Affton has been committed to making a difference through our people and our business relationships. Today our company is still owned and operated by the Wright family. A few years might have passed since 1969 but one thing that has not changed is the desire to provide excellent service for our customers and a great working environment for our employees.
Since 1969, the heart of Affton has been our trucking operation. From a single truck, Affton Trucking has grown to a fleet of over 100 late-model, company-owned trucks serving in the Intermodal, Pneumatic Tank, Van, and Flatbed industries. Our company has the highest level of service standards and we are continuously improving our process to create a complete transportation solution for our customers.
