Trucking is in our DNA, it has been since the late 1970s. We are a family owned and operated company and we’ve carried these values into all aspects of the business. Our mission is to give our employees an honest, caring, and dedicated place to work all while providing top notch customer service to our valued customers. At its birth, HFC, was nothing more than a 1996 Peterbilt and a dream. Through the years, several setbacks have led us to the growth and success we see today. We are constantly learning and improving. We utilize the best technology and equipment to ensure we meet and exceed our customers expectations. We always strive to use what we learned today to guarantee a better tomorrow.
Trucking is in Heath’s DNA. His father, a farmer, turned to trucking during the winter off-season, and Heath thought he’d follow suit, despite the fact that he was geographically challenged. The idea of establishing his own transport business first presented itself over 22 years ago during a long-haul run west. He wanted to create a company that was “outward focused,” one that concentrated on what he could do for his employees and their families and their customers. HFC Transport the result. He’s come a long way from the days of not knowing where Maryland was.
The fact that his job duties shift throughout the day keeps Lew engaged as the Director of HR & Safety at HFC Transport. But specifically, he enjoys working with the company’s drivers, recruiting new employees, and connecting with existing ones weekly to check in and get to know them on a personal level. It’s all part of being a valued member of the team, says Lew, who believes HFC is a transportation industry standout because its leadership considers employee care essential to company success. A self-professed life-long learner, Lew enjoys the challenge of taking college courses, such as sociology and public speaking, and he has recently taken up photography.
HFC Transport excels at communication, and this is due in large part to Denny. As dispatch and assistant general manager for the past six years, he is responsible for keeping on top of customer loads and their drivers’ locations and updating customers accordingly. He is drawn to the family atmosphere at HFC and is proud of being associated with a company that is dedicated to its employees and customers. In his free time, Denny can be found enjoying dirt track races at the local speedway. Work or play, powerful engines drive his interests.
In the two years that Ashley has been with HFC Transport, she has been impressed by the comradery and communication the company’s staff exhibits. This sense of teamwork is what most appeals to her about her job. Ashley is the accounting officer, and as such she oversees invoicing, billing, banking operations, and, of course, payroll. Consequently, she is the most popular employee at HFC. When she isn’t handing out checks, Ashley likes to spend time with family and friends, playing a mean game of pool.
