What is Eli Wesley Trucking About
Over 50 Years of Experience
CEO and Founder
Eli and Patsy Wesley started Eli Wesley Trucking in 1973. After years of working as a heavy equipment operator at various companies around Louisville, KY, Eli Wesley bought a brand new 1973 Brockway truck and together he and Patsy started their own company. They Incorporated the company in 1975. It started with a dump truck business and they each took turns driving around the mid-west and southern regions of the United States, delivering a load wherever it was needed. In 1978 they began expanding their business by purchasing a brand new Freightliner, also a ’77 Ford and grew from there. They continued to expand over the years by purchasing additional trucks as their demand increased. They currently have 42 trucks driven by their independent contractors.
In October of 1984, Patsy and Eli welcomed their son Patrick into the world. He has literally been around trucking his entire life. He knows every aspect of the business from repair and maintenance, making sure the freight gets delivered to payments and expenses.
