A Family Based Owner Operator Company
In 1974, Marcia Taylor and her husband bought a small truck line called George Bennett Motor Express, having just 15 trucks at the time. Through the following four decades Marcia and her children, David Lowry, Danny Lowry, and Lynette Mathis have formed a bond with drivers that makes you feel a part of their family. During that span many drivers have stayed for 30+ years because they are treated with the respect a family member deserves. While Bennett has more than 1,000 drivers today, each and every one knows how important they are.
