Brown Transport is a three-generation company that began in 1929. Russell Brown converted his first truck, a Model-T into a flatbed and hauled tobacco trash from area farms. In 1932 Russell traded four cows and some cash for a used Model A 1 ½ ton truck and started hauling grain and livestock to Cincinnati. The P.U.C.O. authority he was granted in 1935 is believed to be one of the oldest in Preble County.
By the late 1960's and early 1970's, Russell's attention turned to hauling aggregate using dump trailers, with the help of his son Jack, and later on his two grandsons, Mickey and Terry. In 1997 Terry sold his portion of the business and today Russell's grandson Mickey runs Brown Transport. Russell retired in 1973 but stayed actively involved with the company until his death in 2000 at 99 years old.
In June 2000, Brown Transport purchased Overpeck Trucking Company. Overpeck originated in Butler County in the 1950's and provided bulk dump truck service to Southwest Ohio.
Currently Brown Transport operates 26 company tractors and over 40 dump trailers. We also have tank trailers for hauling liquid fertilizer and utilize more than 60 owner-operators. We provide shipping services mainly in the Great Lakes region of the United States (Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, West Virginia and Pennsylvania) and have 48-state operating authority.
