A Business Partnership that Spans Over 30 Years
This past December, Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co., Utility Trailer of Dallas and Convoy Servicing Company presented a commemorative 35th Anniversary refrigerated trailer to
Stevens Transport at their Stevens’ holiday party.
Hal Bennett, Todd Bennett and David Wallace from Utility Trailer Manufacturing, along with Packy Watson, owner of Utility Trailer of Dallas and Deke Knowlton of Convoy Servicing, delivered the refrigerated van to the Aaron family at the event. The occasion also celebrated the relationship between the Bennett family – owners of Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. and the Aaron family – owners of Stevens Transport.
“We have had a tremendous relationship with Hal Bennett and his team since the 1980s. And today, our entire ﬂeet is comprised of 100% Utility trailers and Thermo King reefer units,” said Steven Aaron, Chairman and CEO.
“Our relationship with Utility is a true partnership. We are both family-run enterprises with a new generation now entering the business. That has always been a part of our synergy. We are honored to take delivery of this commemorative 35th Anniversary trailer, and are proud to add it to our ﬂeet of more than 11,000 Utility trailers to date,” added Vice Chairman Todd Aaron.
“Utility builds a very strong, light weight trailer that provides good value to our customers. And we are very proud of the relationship between Stevens Transport and Utility. This is a cyclical business that travels through peaks and valleys and it is the mutual respect that we have for each other that insures continued growth and prosperity for both companies,” said Hal Bennett.
Founded in 1980 by Steven Aaron, Stevens Transport began with a ﬂeet of only 10 commercial trucks. Today it is one of the largest and most respected refrigerated carriers in the United States.
