Carolina Tank Lines headquartered in North Carolina, US, has been providing truckload services for over 70 years. Initially founded as a traditional truckload carrier, Carolina Tank Lines has diversified itself as a true transportation solutions provider and technology innovator, committed to delivering unique, high-value and customized solutions to its customers.
1945 The Beginning
In 1945, H.J. “Red” Capps and his wife, Ovella Norwood Capps, founded Capps Sand & Stone and Capps Lime & Fertilizer. The Nello Teer Company was one of their first long term customers. Later in 1950, they purchased the rights to Carolina Tank Lines in order to add petroleum services to their business and became the dedicated carrier for several major textile plants. In the late seventies, the companies were consolidated to form Carolina Tank Lines, Inc.
1980 Expanded its core territory
By the 1980’s, Carolina Tank Lines Inc. added Refrigerated Freight and Dry Freight services to further expand the company's capabilities. Currently we provide superior Refrigerated, Dry Van and HazMat Freight services throughout the United States.
2008 A New Beginning
In 2008, Carolina Tank Lines moved over to primarily Refridgerated freight during the recession. We became a produce, and medical supply based carrier and we will continue to follow that foundation.
Our goal for the future remains constant as we continue to develop new business partners and meet the needs of our current customers. We recognize the success of our company is based on the success of your organization. "Growth with our Customers" is a key objective at Carolina Tank Lines, Inc.
