Going Places with Multi-Prong Trucking Business J Trucking LLC
What started as one man with a truck has grown into a trucking empire. Jamison Hadley founded his company J Trucking LLC in 2001 but quickly began expanding. Now, J Trucking LLC has over 50 trucks and serves 12 states, bringing the brands you know and love to your stores’ shelves on time.
While logistics and trucking are big business these days, Hadley runs things a little differently. “We are family-owned,” says Hadley. “We don’t have driver numbers. We know our drivers by name.”
Hadley's wife, Andrea, is also his business partner. The two of them stay busy between J Trucking and their other logistics and real estate ventures. A referral from a lawyer in Albany kicked off their partnership with Synovus, and that relationship has continued to deepen and grow as the business has.
Property loans and refinancing have been the name of the game for J Trucking. Their commercial banker, Daniel Stone, also helped improve the company’s cash flow which has boosted growth even more.
“[Our banker] Daniel Stone has been great for us. He’s off the charts as far as excellence goes because he’s given us nothing but good, sound advice.”
According to Hadley, a successful business needs three things: a great banker, lawyer, and CPA. And for his business, the bank relationship has flourished.
“I have my banker’s cell phone number. He has mine. We talk on the weekends about any issues or thoughts I have,” he says. “I’m not a banking person, but Daniel has been great for us. He’s off the charts as far as excellence goes because he’s given us nothing but good, sound advice.”
“I would recommend Synovus to everyone,” says Hadley, who plans on getting more tractor trailers soon. He knows Stone and Synovus can help J Trucking continue its current growth trajectory.
“Synovus will be our first stop. We are pushing forward to supply the country.”
