On August 8th, 88 years ago in 1932, J.W. Allen & Company was established in New Orleans, Louisiana with the purpose to serve and assist the growing needs of the transportation industry.

"No shipment too big. No shipment too small. The customer is always right!" was the mantra of our founder, Joseph Webster Allen, then, and the spoken values remain true today.

We would like to use this opportunity to say a big “thank you!” to all of our valued clients, vendors, and employees for your trust and contributions that have ultimately paved a successful path for our company over the past 88 years. We could not have done this without you, and your recognition is of utmost importance in celebrating this milestone.

In an expression of our gratitude, here are the thoughtful words of some employees:

“57 years ago, I was offered a position to be J.W. Allen & Company’s office boy; I accepted the position, and it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!” - Billy App, CEO

"I'm blessed to work for such a great company and be surrounded by even greater people!  All smiles as we celebrate 88+ years in business.  Happy Birthday J.W. Allen!".  Jerry Becnel, President
