Our History

H.C. Ploof founded Ploof Transfer Company of Jacksonville, FL in 1912. Mr. Ploof used mules and wagons to transport construction materials locally. As the years went by, Ploof grew and expanded, and eventually abandoned the wagons in favor of powerful tractors and trailers.

In 1941, H.C. Ploof retired and W.B. Copeland acquired ownership and changed the name to Ploof Truck Lines, Inc.

In the mid-1990s, Ploof began to experience difficulties, and in September 1999 filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Statutes. Mr. David V. Penland, President of Cypress Truck Lines, Inc., purchased the assets of Ploof Truck Lines out of bankruptcy and on November 10, 1999 changed the name to Ploof Carriers Corporation.

Cypress Truck Lines has an excellent reputation for stability, quality, and dependable service, as well as a “Satisfactory” rating with the Department of Transportation, which is the highest rating available.

Merging the operations of these two companies has resulted in the largest gypsum carrier in the United States.

Cypress Truck Lines has a distinguished history in the southeast and an even brighter future. We hope we can be of service to you and part of your future as we forge into the new millennium.
