Bones Transportation Inc. is located in Ottawa, Kansas, which is approximately 60 miles southwest of Kansas City.  The Bones family has been involved in the operations of Bones Transportation Inc. since the business was started in 1984.  Prior to the founding of Bones Transportation Inc., the family owned and operated the trucking business under the name of Transportation Inc., which started in 1963.  Transportation Inc. remains in operation as a sister-company to Bones Transportation Inc., serving as a freight brokerage for end dump equipment.

During the first 20 years of business as Transportation Inc., we operated a small fleet of tractor/trailers that serviced customers in Kansas and it's surrounding states only.  Around the time of Bones Transportation Inc.'s inception, we began to branch out to other states and gradually reached the point where we serviced all 48 states.

Though we have generally operated end dumps, over the years we have tried other types of equipment such as grain hoppers, pneumatics, flatbeds and dry vans. Ultimately we found that our specialty should remain in end dumps.

Bones Transportation Inc. operates 38 tractor/trailers, all end dumps, throughout the 48 states.  For the last 10 years, our fleet size has ranged from 30 to 40 units.  Currently, our fleet consists of 19 owner/operators and 20 company trucks.

With our end dump trailers, we are able to haul commodities such as rock, sand, crushed glass, scrap metal, fertilizer, grain, feed, coal products, rubber chips and other commodities too numerous to mention.

Our philosophy is to keep things small and simple.  We have no intentions of operating a large fleet of trucks, as we always want to be considered a small trucking company.  By keeping our fleet size small, we have better control of all facets of our operations and our employees will feel more like family.  With this philosophy, we also believe our customers will be given quality and personal service that they're not likely to get with other companies.  We pride ourselves on honesty and timely service.
