In February 2002 the company applied for its operating authority to haul contract freight for a worldwide agriculture chemical company based out of Greeley Co. with plants in Billings Mt, Greenville Ms. and Greeley Co. called Loveland Products. We started out at this time as a small one truck and trailer operation. Through dedicated attention to customer service and hard work we proved ourselves over the course of time and Loveland Products started giving more and more freight to us. At this time due to financial constraints to purchase more equipment, a driver was put in the truck and Kevin went into the office to move the freight through outside carriers as a logistics operation. As freight increased more, in time we started to purchase more equipment and continue with the logistics operation as well.


In the summer of 2004 H.O.T. Express worked a contract with Loveland for them to sell their company trucks and H.O.T. would take over exclusively all their inbound and outbound freight. With Loveland removing their company trucks, the freight volume increased dramatically for us. We at this time purchased another small trucking company and it was official then with a small office staff and an increased fleet from 3 trucks to 12 trucks. It was also in the summer of 2004 that we started H.O.T. Logistics as a separate entity with a full broker’s bond and office staff to keep moving the increased flow of freight. Also in the summer of 2004 a temperature controlled fleet was started with contracts for all the Meadow Gold Daries plant in the state of Montana and Colorado.



"We have worked with Kevin Wirth and his company since June, 2005 and have found his service and expertise in the trucking business to be exceptional. We rely on him to haul most of our hazardous and non¬hazardous freight to and from Billings, Montana.


His drivers have been recognized by many of our customers as being timely and personable. We have a great working relationship with him and his company and would recommend him to other companies looking for dependable and honest service."
