From the supportive and welcoming office staff to mechanics trained to find and fix equipment before problems happen, Double J Transport is a great transportation company that expresses its values in business every day and at every opportunity.
In 1965 in a small town 20 miles north of Milwaukee, Jerome Fechter & Sons began with three milk trucks for local deliveries. From those humble beginnings and hard work, the business slowly grew to include an expanded milk delivery route outside of Wisconsin and continued to grow using two new semi-trucks. After becoming contract carriers, Jerome Fechter & Sons combined with JBF Transport to become Double J Transport with a fleet of six trucks.
The business continued to flourish under the guidance of Jerome E. and Jerome B. Fechter, adding a third generation, Keith Fechter, to its ranks. Over 50 years after it started, Double J Transport has 180 trucks in its fleet, with a client list including Quad Graphics, Forward Air Transportation Services, and Leonard’s Express.
By focusing on growing the business to serve not just Wisconsin but the entire continental United States with safety as priority number one, three generations have guided the company from three milk trucks and local delivery routes to a fleet 180 trucks strong. Their insistence on proper maintenance of their fleet, strategic vision, and investment of time and hard work have made Double J Transport what it is today – a leader in transportation.
