In the early 1980’s, New Waverly Transportation began as a one truck corporation in New Waverly, Texas. Then in 1994, the New Waverly Transportation name and operating authority were acquired by Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (L-P) and merged with L-P’s private fleet of trucks. In 2001, L-P sold its private fleet and transformed into an owner-operator fleet primarily in Texas and Louisiana. Soon thereafter, NWT expanded its area of operations to include the South East and Eastern United Sates in order to better support its customers’ growing needs.
In late 2007, New Waverly Transportation underwent a corporate strategic re-organization placing NWT tighter within the L-P umbrella. As a result, NWT is now head-quartered in Nashville TN, and the Accounting function is located in Hayden Lake ID. This consolidation and alignment of offices & operations, closer within L-P, positioned NWT as a cost effective & efficient trucking operation. In addition, this move has geographically located Dispatch & Sales closer to the NWT customer base. It also gave NWT broadened marketing and IT efforts, a perk from the L-P relationship, that resulted in a brushed up logo, website, and enhanced dispatch and accounting software systems.
All of these things combined with management’s passionate desire to grow & excel with the NWT business, are building New Waverly Transportation as The New Wave in Transportation.
Through 3 decades of change, New Waverly Transportation has abided by three basic operational principles:
Safety, Service & Integrity.
NWT is committed to providing excellent service while upholding these principles and will continue to do so in the future.
