Our Mission & Values
It is the mission of Tennessee Steel Haulers to maintain our founding principle of respect for both customers and drivers by serving them in the safest, most dependable and expedient manner at all times.
Our vision is to build long term relationships for the mutual benefit of our customers and our community by becoming not just a trucking company, but a trucking family.
Tennessee Steel Haulers (TSH) was incorporated in 1976 by Sid Stanley, who still serves as the president. Sid originally started his career in trucking working for a family owned trucking company. When the owners of the company decided to sell, Sid was forced to pave his own path. Although the initial startup was difficult and new, Sid knew the principles on which he wanted to build his company. He had to earn respect. Sid knew that to build a proper trucking company, he would need respect from both the customer’s he would eventually attain, as well as the drivers he would eventually hire.
It was with this basic principle that Sid Stanley began growing TSH. The first significant time of growth brought on terminals in Nashville, TN and Cofield, NC. Shortly after this new growth of TSH’s business, Sid’s twins, Craig and Gregg Stanley, decided to join the family and add on to its promising future. Since their involvement, TSH has branched out into Laredo, TX, Houston, TX, and Clarksville, TN.
Though TSH has grown considerably over these past 30 years, it didn’t come easy, and it didn’t come without a lot of hard work. The changes brought forth with the struggling economy encouraged TSH to value their service even more, as well as, remembering the importance of maintaining respect with everyone involved with TSH. Though many things have changed, the original dedication to earning people’s respect through trusted service set forth by Sid Stanley, has and will always remain.
