The year 1930 marked the beginning of South Western Motor Transport Company with one truck in service. It took years of hard work and determination to build up the network in business. Roy Gilbert Sr.-the genius in transportation business-who started this, had one second-hand truck in his hand and he used it to transport goods to San Antonio, Cotulla, and TX. At the inception, he named the company as Gilbert truck line. After two decades of grueling hard-work, he bought South Western motor transport company with an amazing fleet of 100 trucks. Sixties and seventies brought him tremendous growth and development and particularly in eighties, he extended the service to the Midwest and Southeastern states. As of today, it has extended its services to Mexico, Canada, and most parts of United States.
