Hines Trucking was founded by J.D. Hines in 1936. One truck hauled
logs, lumber and gravel in the local area of Prescott, Arkansas. In
1969, J.D. partnered with his son, Billy Hines, who had returned
from college. Billy was the main mechanic, the tire repair guy, and
the manager. Father and son continued to haul gravel, but added
additional equipment. In 1976, the partnership was incorporated
into J.D. & Billy Hines Trucking, Inc.
Hines Trucking, Inc. has 83 years experience in custom hauling,
regional transportation, and equipment maintenance. HTI built our
reputation and business on getting wood chips and other timber
by-products to mills when they need them - 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, and 365 days a year.
Hines Trucking is customer-oriented, flexible and able to handle
mills' needs, which vary greatly from day to day. We have the
equipment to handle the "ups and downs". We can move trucks and
drivers to meet any demand. Customers can call us at any time - day
or night, and we can adjust our schedule to meet their needs.
HTI was awarded its first chip hauling contract in 1979. Many more
contracts followed. The chip-haul/short-haul division grew to 140
trucks and served southeast Oklahoma, northeast Texas, south
Arkansas, and north Louisiana.
In 1983, HTI joined the Arkansas Trucking Association. Also in
1983, the Interstate Commerce Commission granted a General
Commodities Authority for 48 states. A long haul division started
with flatbed trailers started in 1984. Refrigerated trailers were
added in 1986. Dry vans were added in 1989. That long haul division
was sold in November 1990.
Billy acquired the company in 1984, and became President and Chief
Executive Officer. Mr. J.D. passed away in 1986. The company had
been operating from tiny facilities in the downtown area. At one
time, the shop was in the building of an old pickle factory! After
a couple additions, space for expansion had been exhausted. In
1987, HTI moved to a multi-building campus adjacent to Interstate
30, with ample room for offices, shop, and parking. Facilities have
expanded several times.
In 1989, 30 years ago, HTI was an early adopter of the single tire
system for chip trucks.
In 1995, Hines Fiber Recovery and Processing, Inc. was founded to
process wood waste into boiler fuel.
In August 2005, HTI started a flatbed/long-haul division with 6
trucks which grew to include 45 trucks operating mostly in the
southeastern US. In January 2006, HTI began a log haul operation
consisting of 5 trucks which expanded to 11 trucks. In October
2007, HTI purchased a Winnfield, Louisiana company that added 11

Arkansas Trucking Report. Hines Trucking was named "Best Trucking

"Best of Business Awards".
In 2010, HTI was the recipient of a grant funded by the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and administered by the
Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality. The Diesel Emissions
Reduction Funding Assistance Program, or Go RED! (Reduce Emissions

waiting to load or unload. An additional 12 units were funded in a

the mark of four million safe miles driven. Twenty-one of our
current drivers are in the "Million Mile Club", with in excess of
25 million safe driving miles.
On October 27, 2012, Hines Trucking acquired the chip haul division
of Harvest Haul, Inc. of Magnolia, Mississippi, which included 43
tractors and 96 trailers. On May 23, 2014, HTI moved to the Old
