Service Transfer Inc.

The Solution to All Your

Intermodal Trucking Needs


The company was founded in 1970 as the global standardization of container shipping was emerging. From its modest beginnings as a local carrier in Norfolk with one truck, Service Transfer has grown to become one of the largest intermodal trucking companies in the Tidewater area of Virginia. In 1996 the company added an over-the-road service to better accommodate its customers and has since expanded to open terminals across the southeast in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Even as Service Transfer continues to grow, it remains a family-owned and operated company.


Drawing on extensive industry experience, Service Transfer focuses on fulfilling customer needs by offering competitive rates, prompt service, and knowledgeable staff. The company can accommodate any special requirements, including overweight, hazardous or refrigerated shipments, container storage, and chassis usage. Service Transfer embraces safety, reliability, and customer service as core company values.
