Company History

Hartley Transportation, a non-asset based transportation broker was formed by Thomas J. Hartley in 1992 after a successful career in sales and management working with several of the nation's largest Less Than Truckload common carriers.
Initially the firm offered independent sales representation for LTL and TL carriers needing to fill available equipment coming into the New England area.

As the demand for service grew to encompass a larger geographical area, the company answered quickly when in October of 1992; Hartley became affiliated as an Agent for Landstar of Rockford, IL / Jacksonville, FL. Landstar is one of the largest truckload carriers in the country with over 10,000 drivers and maintains a large modern fleet of diversified equipment as well as a 24 hour dispatch / customer support service center.
