Baggett Transportation Company was founded by Jess Baggett in Birmingham in 1928, as a local carrier hauling dynamite for area coal companies. In the mid 1930's, William Sellers joined Mr. Baggett, and acquired a small interest in his company. During WWII, the Department of War called on Baggett to help in the movement of munitions. During this time, Mr. Sellers assumed full ownership of Baggett-and gradually expanded our scope into a major transportation company. In addition to transporting explosives and munitions for commercial shippers and the re-named Department of Defense, Baggett served the LTL business within the State of Alabama and other areas of the Southeastern United States. In 1976, we sold our LTL business and became a truckload carrier-focusing our services on the Department of Defense, and commercial shippers. Now in our third generation of family ownership, Baggett today remains true to the same business principles Mr. Sellers practiced in building this company - while upholding a steadfast commitment to investing in the services and technologies we need to take us into the next generation, and beyond.
