In 2014, three friends with two trucks between them set out to create a trucking company that ran on service, safety and reliability. With that, we started Hermes NVC—a company whose values earned an ever-growing client list and a rapidly expanding fleet of premium trucks. Dedicated to doing it right, we made sure a full-service repair shop was part of the operation from the beginning. But as with any company, it’s the people who really make the difference. We’ve built a smart team of multi-lingual dispatchers and safety conscious drivers so we can deliver top-notch service anywhere in the US.

“We saw how much potential was there and knew we could make a real difference.”

“We drive all over the US, so the whole country is our community”



As a trucking company, we’re constantly crisscrossing the country and getting to know people along the way. So, when a series of devastating hurricanes hit in 2017 and 2018, we provided a truck and driver to haul desperately needed supplies to the hardest hit areas.
