PRESIDENT & CEO
Oakley Transport became the world's first ISO-certified food transporter. ISO 9001:2015 and 22000:2018 are both stipulations that focus on superior operations management, food safety, and food defense. This accomplishment reflects our dedication to customer satisfaction and the integrity of our customers' products throughout the transportation process.
Oakley Transport continues to set itself apart and challenge old ways of thinking for cleaner, more efficient transportation. Oakley's identity lies in serving its customers with care.
In 1961 Oakley Groves, Incorporated began as an independent citrus fruit broker in Dade City, Florida. Soon after, Oakley Brothers were established to enter the citrus industry's harvest and hauling sector, becoming the largest (and still is) citrus transport company in the state. Over time, Oakley Brothers was merged into Oakley Transport Group, our parent company.
In 1986, the Oakley family decided to diversify out of total dependence on citrus, having endured the hard freezes of 1982 and 1984. The newly formed company (Oakley Transport, Inc.) was dedicated to transporting food-grade ingredients in the contiguous United States, Canada, and Mexico. With our commitment to growth and diversification, the family decided to relocate the company's headquarters to Lake Wales, Florida in 1986.
The root of all Oakley Transport's success begins with Mr. Tommy Oakley. He strives always to be accessible to everyone and makes connections to his employees on a professional and personal level so that they know they are valued and respected. Oakley Transport is a family company, and everyone is treated as such. Mr. Oakley chose to risk it all at the beginning with only eight tankers, having faith in his Oakley Transport Family. Our ever-growing fleet has increased to over 1400+ to date.
