In his early 20's, Thomas R. Bell, Sr. was on a path of playing professional baseball for The Pittsburg Pirates and the NY Yankees. An injury sent him on a different path to support his growing family. After speaking to his uncles, who were already successfully operating trucks, he decided to do it as well. He purchased a used International Truck and began driving as an owner-operated driver. T.R. Bell Trucking was officially formed in 1970.


After a few years of steady growth, the demand increased for quality load deliveries and professionalism. T.R. Bell Trucking began with hauling steel off piers and has evolved the business to include: recycled paper delivery, refrigerated and flat bed loads. In 2000, T.R. Bell Trucking expanded to an office above a 3 bay trucking garage in a 15,000 sq. ft. building on a sprawling 5-acre lot in Pennsauken, NJ.


We have a quality fleet of trucks and a team of 6 highly trained drivers that are experienced in following all the necessary precautions to ensure our customer’s loads are protected and delivered on time.
