Although Melton Trucking Lines is not family owned and operated, its corporate culture exhibits one due to its roots. Established in 1954 by Bert and Gladys Melton, the couple started a company culture which incorporated family values that exists until today. It is unfortunate however that Bert suddenly passed away in 1957 and the company had to be sold to William Duncan McRae who chose to retain the name of the company in Bert’s honor. This small company in Arkansas was initially made up of husband and wife teams which helped strengthen its close-knit company atmosphere.
Today, the company is now serving 48 states in the US and also in Canada and Mexico. In 1980, they are the first company to achieve through-trailer crossing in Mexico and until now, they are still the best in this type of delivery. There are a total of more than 300 trailers which specially serve the area of Mexico. They have acquired operating authority beyond these borders and they effectively provide more than 10,000 crossings each year. To further enhance their services, they offer bilingual services in the areas that they serve. They have also partnered with Mexican carriers to help provide a more efficient and local approach to their business.
Melton Truck Lines has now been operating for more than 50 years and their continual existence in the industry just shows how efficient they had been in the trucking business.

They are the best when it comes to flatbed trucking services and they have offices in various areas in the US as well as in Mexico and Canada.
