Dillon Transportation, LLC was founded in 1997 by Donnie Dillon in his hometown of Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. This privately owned and operated Dry Van company has experienced steady growth and financial stability through long-term commitments to customers and employees.
Donnie Dillon was raised in the trucking industry and spent 20 years as an over-the-road driver. “From the beginning, we hired staff members with vast transportation experience,” says Dillon. The management team has a combined total of more than 150 years of driving and operations expertise. This knowledge is reflected in the company’s success.
Dillon Transportation works for a diversified customer base of leading companies. Known for their high level of service as an on-time carrier, Dillon continues to recruit only experienced, professional drivers willing to go the extra mile to provide outstanding transportation choices for their customers.
Our commitment to provide our customers with ”Service Second to None” requires experienced driving professionals with a proven record of safety and success.
Safety has always been at the top of the list for Dillon Transportation, and we understand that safety starts with our drivers. Dillon Transportation holds quarterly, mandatory safety meetings and abides by all industry safety standards.
Dillon Transportation promotes the following safety measures:
- G.O.A.L. – Get Out And Look
- Three Points of Contact; when entering and exiting the cab or trailer.
- The Five Characteristics of Defensive Driving
- Smith System – Aim high, look 15 seconds into the future. Get the big picture. Keep your eyes moving; scan your mirrors every 5-8 seconds. Leave yourself a way out and make sure others see you.
The results of focusing on safety directly relates to our extremely low claims ratio. Over the last four years we have had a total of 2 claims which makes that a 0.0000068 percent of loads hauled during that time.

Truckers Against Trafficking – T.A.T.
Dillon Transportation is a supporter of the Truckers Against Trafficking Organization. Truckers Against Trafficking is a non-profit organization that exists to educate, equip, empower, and mobilize the trucking industry to combat human trafficking as part of their regular jobs.
Domestic sex trafficking occurs along our nation’s highways and at its truck stops, where traffickers can sell their victims to a transient population they believe are less likely to attempt rescue. In response, TAT is asking the 3 million domestic truckers, as well as other members of the trucking industry, to become aware of this issue, and when they suspect a human trafficking case to call the national hotline and report it.
Traffickers recruit young boys and girls out of our schools, online, in shopping malls, as well as the streets and other locations. They need to be identified and rescued. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that anywhere between 100,000 and 300,000 American kids are at risk of entering the sex trade each year.
As the eyes and ears of our nation’s highways, our drivers are in a unique position to make a difference and close loopholes to traffickers who seek to exploit our transportation system for their personal gain. We encourage all drivers to call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1-888-3737-888 and report what they know. Please also visit the Truckers Against Trafficking website to learn how you can help and to watch the Training Video.

Dillon Transportation is a certified SmartWay Carrier. Protecting our environment is a priority for our organization. We believe we have an obligation to our planet, our neighbors, and our community to do our part in protecting our environment, reducing fuel consumption, and improving our air quality for future generations.
In 2004, the EPA launched the SmartWay—an innovative program that represents environmentally cleaner, more fuel-efficient transportation options.
In its simpler form, the SmartWay program identifies products and services that reduce transportation-related emissions. All EPA SmartWay transportation programs result in significant, measurable air quality and/or greenhouse gas improvements while maintaining or improving current levels of emissions and/or pollutants.
The EPA believes that the quality of the environment is everyone’s responsibility; therefore, the SmartWay program is positioned as a personal choice that can make a difference to the environment.
