Providing truckload service since 1928
Your Logistics Source
Sadler Brothers began its trucking roots in 1928 with a single contract US Mail route near Nashville, Tennessee. Today we operate multiple US Mail contracts within the Midwest and Southeast regions. In addition to serving our customers with the US Postal Service we also serve customers across the automotive, manufacturing, food and beverage and healthcare markets. With our dedicated logistics division, we can provide contract transportation services such as Just In Time (JIT) freight, Expedited, Contract, and servicead-hoc needs.
Sadler Brothers received their first long-haul major contract route in 1942 from Knoxville to Nashville, TN. The USPS gave Sadler 15 hours each way to operate as it was before any interstate systems were launched going into the Knoxville area out of Nashville. Sadler continued to operate this route until the reorganization of the Nashville and Knoxville plants in 2014.
Sadler Brothers provided the first tractor/trailer bulk mail shipment into the Nashville Post Office on Tuesday July 3, 1951. Our arrival inaugurated a daily round-trip from Tullahoma – to – Nashville. Along this route we serviced several cities. Mail for 39 smaller post offices serviced by these central offices was included in the deliveries.
Prior to this truck route being launched, almost all mail coming into and leaving Nashville was shipped by rail. With the new contract Sadler Brothers arrived 30 minutes ahead of schedule with the first shipment which included 160 sacks of mail and 165 boxes of parcel post.
