Since 1934, Buchheit has been serving Industry and Agriculture with dependable transportation services. That’s the year Rudy Buchheit started with one truck to haul livestock to the market for local farmers, and returning to our Southern Missouri area with goods for the local area. Today’s fleet of tractor trailers cover the lower 48 states and into Canada.

Our team of dedicated transportation professionals is eager to expand our service to customers throughout North America. You will find us to be responsive to you and your plants on repetitive business in these very trying transportation times. That is our goal here at Buchheit, to enjoy long term, mutually beneficial relationships every day.Image

We have entered an interesting time in truck transportation history. Record fuel prices, record service demands, and a shrinking pool of operators that can satisfy both of our requirements. We at Buchheit have been a bit more fortunate than some, our trucks are full, and we are even running some rental trucks. Our Owner Operator fleet is strong and growing. I believe that success is because as a smaller company, we are more personable and responsive to our operators than the "Super Carriers".

We recently moved to our new location in Scott City, MO. We outgrew our old facility, having been there for over 70 years, and were looking for more room to grow. This place has it! The small offices we had are replaced by 15,000 foot on the second floor of our warehouse complex. Nice offices, with plenty of room for future growth. We also have 5 truck bays now for our shop compared with our old 2 bay shop.

Our warehouse facility, Buchheit Logistics, Inc is comprised of 277,000 square feet of solid warehouse, 46 dock doors, and various areas that are securable for individual storage requirements. The facility is situated ½ mile off I-55 in Scott City, MO; four miles from the Southeast Missouri port, both major railroads and the Mississippi River. We are conveniently located midway between St Louis and Memphis. Beyond the existing facility is another nearly 30 acres available for development as needs arise. It is by far superior to our prior location and holds exciting potential for the future.

We are excited by our new facility, we have an eager and experienced team and we are positioned for the future, focused on our core business growth and success. That core business is bulk transportation in end dump and bottom drops, along with our van fleet.
