Millis Transfer - On the Road Since 1936

toggle menu

For over 80 years, the Millis Family has remained steadfast in their commitment to providing the best in service and the best in driver amenities.  This has set Millis Transfer apart as one of the elite dry-van fleets on the road today.

Founded in 1936 by brothers Jake and Ray Millis, the company began as a small beer distributor.  As the demand for their services grew, so did the company’s running area and reputation for timely, safe and professional services.  It is through their reputation that the company’s slogan “Getting It There” came to be.


Today, Millis’ trademark maroon trucks and crisp white trailers can be seen throughout the Southeast, Central, Midwest and Northeast United States. Services include regional, over-the-road and dedicated runs in key markets around the country.

Based in Black River Falls, Wisconsin, Millis has maintenance facilities in Black River Falls and Richfield, Wisconsin; Weedsport, New York; Eden, North Carolina; Albany and Cartersville, Georgia; Burleson, Texas and Trenton, Ohio.  We also have drop yards in Ridgeway, Virginia; Albany and Atlanta, Georgia; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Burleson, Texas and East St. Louis, Illinois.


Millis Transfer also supports one of the top CDL-A training schools in the country, Millis Training Institute. Established in 1989, MTI today boasts 6 convenient school locations where students receive one-on-one training with professional and experienced trainers during the four week course, followed by on the road training. Students earn $600 per week in our free apprenticeship program, starting on the first day of training, then earn $0.44 per mile and a 1 cent per mile pay raise every quarter when out with a trainer.
