Blackhawk Transport was founded in 1990 with one R model Mack and three Raven flat bed trailers.
As a Hendricks Holding Company, Blackhawk Transport has continued to grow through customer expansion as well as acquisition.
Today, we run a mix of company trucks and Owner/Operator trucks. Our fleet is comprised of Vans, Flatbeds, and Conestogas available throughout the US and Canada.
Blackhawk trucks are satellite dispatched and tracked, which enables us to provide the highest level of service to our drivers and customers.
Through our Dedicated Contract Solutions, we provide customers with a wide variety of equipment services including but not limited to lightweight equipment, end dumps, refrigerated trailers, straight trucks, and tankers.

Blackhawk Transport is in an industry that has often overlooked the climate and
the negative impacts we may have on it. In transportation as a whole, medium and
heavy duty trucks make up 6% of the vehicles on the road and consume 26% of
petroleum based fuels. In 2019, transportation accounted for about 29% of total U.S.
greenhouse gas emissions. Here at Blackhawk, it is a priority to build an
environmentally sustainable company for the betterment of ourselves, our customers,
and our communities.
Currently, we are doing our part to provide efficient solutions to our customers.
There are several ways we limit our fuel consumption, and ultimately our emissions,
here at Blackhawk. These include five minute idle shutoffs, auxiliary power units, fuel
efficient trucks, aerodynamic accessories, and proper truck maintenance. Full
truckloads and route optimization decreases any empty movements made by our
equipment. Additionally, Blackhawk is a registered partner with SmartWay, an EPA
program that encourages businesses to be environmentally responsible when managing
transportation. Because of our current efforts, we earned a ‘High Performer” award as a
SmartWay mixed truck carrier in the Carbon recognition category in 2021.
While we are proud of our efforts so far, innovation is at the forefront .
Technology continues to advance, and we are working to stay up to date. Electric
vehicles are leading the way in alternative fuel transportation (zero tailpipe carbon
emissions), and they may be integrated into our company in the near future. By working
with groups such as CalSMART, NACFE, and others, we may soon be able to provide
customers with electric spotting operations and charging stations to power these
vehicles. The future is bright, and we are committed to providing for both our people and
