Jerry A. and Bonnie P. Hatchett started Hatchett & Hatchett Trucking Co., Inc.  in March of 1982 with a cousin, Bobby Hatchett and his wife, Linda.  Jerry & Bonnie  ran the business out of a back room in Jerry and Bonnie’s home. After just a few years, Bobby and Linda retired from trucking, leaving Jerry and Bonnie as the sole owners. 

We started with 2 trucks, which were leased to Arthur H. Fulton, and then to D.S.S. Inc. In March 1984, we went out on our own and soon had several good customers. We continued to expand and more drivers and office personnel were added.  A year after we began, we moved into an office and garage in Martinsville, VA. The business grew faster than we anticipated, necessitating a move to larger facilities in Bassett, VA, a move that was made in 1985.


In 1985 we started H & H Truck Brokers, Inc., which complimented Hatchett & Hatchett Trucking.  In 1998, we merged both Hatchett & Hatchett Trucking, and H & H Truck Brokers, and renamed the company Hatchett Transportation, Inc.

Today we have grown to 15 company trucks and 34 (53' air-ride) trailers which consist of 34  Utility air-ride our oldest trailers in the fleet today are 2014 trailers and the average age of our trailers today is less than (3) four years old. Our customer base has grown with us, and our goal is to continue to improve our good service to our customers, and to provide a good living for our drivers and employees.
