History

The Covenant Logistics Group story is one centered on people.

It’s a history going back more than 30 years, to our founders David and Jacqueline Parker starting Covenant Transport in 1986 with 25 trucks and 50 trailers. It's a story of our trucks, trailers and people crisscrossing all 50 states and racking up millions of miles along the way.

Ours is a story of service – expedited, temperature-controlled, dedicated, and managed transportation services – and of freight. It's a story of moved goods, reflecting our rapidly-changing American economy, as well as the needs and preferences of the American people since the mid-1980s.

Our story is also the shared experiences of our thousands of on-site employees, based at locations across the United States. Our story is first homes and family additions, lives and careers dedicated to the advancement of a common goal: to keep America’s shelves stocked and her markets moving.

And all of this -- our history -- paves the way for our future. We go forward on our tradition of putting others before ourselves, of treating others the way we want to be treated and of acting with integrity, honesty and fairness in all our business dealings. We rely on our core values and vision to guide us through the ever-changing transportation and logistics industry of today.

Our history reminds us of who we are: people, like the shareholders, customers and employees we commit to serve now, and in the future, just as we have for the last three decades.
