Our Story

About Us

Founded in 1982, Barr-Nunn is a dry van truckload carrier operating about 550 tractors and about 1,860 trailers. We provide outstanding shipping service to manufacturers and users of consumer products, paper products, food products and ingredients, plastic and rubber, building materials, appliances, hardware, castings, animal feeds and a host of other products. Our large customer base and ability to efficiently meet the needs of shippers have made Barr-Nunn a stable and profitable operation.

In today's economy, many trucking operations may come and go. But when you work with Barr-Nunn Transportation, you can rest assured that we're here for the long haul, and we'll be here for many miles down the road. Whether it's your first shipment with us or your five hundredth, we want you to be completely satisfied with the service you receive.

In 2014, Barr-Nunn was acquired by Knight Transportation. We continue to operate as an independent subsidiary, and are pleased to be part of one of the most successful trucking companies in the business.

If you're looking for a trucking company that can provide you with peace of mind, we invite you to give us a call and discuss your individual shipping needs. A Barr-Nunn representative can show you exactly how our service, safety and stability all add up to top performance... when we take our show on the road for you.
