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.
