Dedicated Transport has been providing superior Dedicated Contract Carriage service for over 25 years


Dedicated Transport was founded in June 1988 as an outgrowth of a small truck leasing company located in Newbury, Ohio; approximately 30 miles east of downtown Cleveland. Frank Wagner and Tom McDermott, both former Leaseway Transportation executives, have developed the company over the last 25+ years.

From its humble roots of one truck and driver, the company has now grown to 130+ employees and annual revenues approaching $20 million dollars. Dedicated Transport initially focused on growing the dedicated contract carriage business with manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors in Northeast Ohio. Today their footprint stretches from Wyoming to Florida.


Our Mission is to provide our customers with high quality dedicated contract carriage and logistics support services.
