Founded in 1894, Jones Motor Co., Inc., has been identified as the oldest major carrier in the trucking industry. The company traces its history back to John Jones, an immigrant from Wales, and his horse and cart. He first hauled goods himself around Spring City, Pennsylvania, but began adding more horses and wagons over the years. In 1912, he bought the company’s first truck and worked with his sons in the business until his death in 1925. The company, still based in Spring City, has been through many changes and diversified over the decades, but the Jones Motor Group has never lost its focus on meeting customers’ specific needs with quality service.
