Watkins Motor Lines Careers & Info

Watkins Motor Lines Overview

Watkins Motor Lines is a full-service trucking and shipping company that works throughout the United States and Canada. The company originally came from a fleet of two vehicles that were used to haul farm equipment and produce across the country, and over time, it has grown into a company that services the most of North America. The roots of the company itself go back to the 1930s, and throughout that time, Watkins Motor Lines, headquartered in Lakeland, Florida, brought many other smaller trucking companies underneath its umbrella.

The company went on to acquire Sunco Carriers, which added refrigerated trucks to its fleet, and today, the company does a fair amount of refrigerated shipping. In 2006, the company was sold to FedEx Corporation, and the company itself received a face lift with the new title of Watkins Truckload Services. Watkins Motor Lines, now Watkins Truckload Services, continues to do their own hiring and their own management.
