F&E Flatbed Freight Haulers was started in 2006 by Gerald Eller and Barbara Fincher a father and daughter team. Gerald had worked in the courier service business for three years. And during the time of his employment by various companies Gerald found there was a real need for a flatbed hotshot/expedited service in the Portland Metro area. He quit the courier business in 2006. Gerald then had his son-in-law make him a flatbed pintle pull trailer, and Gerald started working the business. Barbara and Joy went out and visited with the customers and the customers gave F&E a try. And with each customer brought in, they have become part of the F&E family.
Gerald started working the business one load at a time till we had to put on another truck. One customer lead to another, and then another and now today we are considered one of the best Hot Shot services in the Portland Metro area. Our combined ownership gives us 40+ years in the transportation industry and have achieved superior on-time pickups and deliveries. Call F&E dispatch and you will find courteous friendly customer service , you will also find that our drivers are friendly as well.
We have expanded our business by using independent contractors that know how to operate legally, and safely. We have kept our independent contractors happy with a good pay structure for the loads that they haul for us.
We are small but we are mighty. We have one semi with a 45 foot flatbed trailer, and three heavy duty pickup and gooseneck trailers ranging from 25 feet to 30 feet. One of the 30 foot trailers has a rack that can be put over the deck of his trailer so he can haul 3000 pounds of 40 foot product while deck below is used for other things. The semi hauls 39,999 pounds. One of the heavy duty trucks can haul up to 16,000 pounds the other two 10,000 to 12,000 pounds.
