03/19/12 - Here We Grow!
Jabez has been enjoying steady growth over the past year and a need to expand. We've just completed building onto our location at 4508 Fennel Rd. here in Knoxville, TN and we have relocated our Corporate Office next to our Shop and Cross Dock. With our 24/7/365 Dispatch Department, Recruiting/Training offices, Shop/Maintenance/Cross Dock, Human Resources, Safety Department, Accounts Receivable/Payable, Terminal Manager, CFO and CEO all in one location, we are not only able to operate more efficiently to serve our customers but also, happy to be together.
07/01/11 - Cross Dock Location
Jabez opened a four bay garage for cross docking, storage, routing, truck repairs, and maintenance. This location also has offices for recruiting, orientation/training, shop personnel, a driver lounge, and has a monitored parking area. Two full time mechanics are on duty M-F to maintain our fleet and to offer leased on trucks reduced repair and maintenance costs.
The Jabez cross dock and shop are located at:
Jabez Cross Dock
4506-4508 Fennel Road
Knoxville, TN 37912
1/10/11 - Growth Strategy
Leasing on to our fleet became easy when we opened our fleet to solo tractor operators and fleet owners. Jabez found ways to utilize solo drivers by securing non expedited freight that offers steady income to the solo driver and the owner year around. Jabez recruits drivers through targeted nationwide advertising, Jabez interviews, and insurance underwriting review.

03/18/2009 - New Location
After months of planning
and preparation Jabez moved into its new office. The location is a new
development off Callahan Drive in North Knoxville:
Jabez Expediting and Logistics Co.
6767 Jubilee Center Way
Knoxville, TN 37912
Staff from our Indiana office were in town for the week to assist in the move and to provide cross training to maximize employee skills and share ideas of better ways to service our clients.
03/18/2009 - New
The answers we received to the questions in our survey of clients has been instrumental in creating two new programs. One will address the competitive nature of the economy. The other will meet their desire for reliability of service. These are "Straight Line Pricing" and "Any Delay, No Pay" programs.
Straight Line Pricing allows you to lock in, for any given month, competitive hauling rates per type of truck used. These per mile rates include fuel charges. Even better news is that based on a number of circumstances, the quote you get for a load MAY be lower than the guaranteed low rate.
The " Any Delay, NO Pay" programs is exactly what it says it is. One minute late, not one penny paid. Conditions apply. Ask for details.
03/18/2009 - GPS
Jabez has added GPS tracking capability to all of our units. This will allow us to have 24/7, minute by minute, instant vehicle location and verification of pickups and deliveries. This tracking system allows instant messaging for communications and updates to and from the drivers.
