In 1906, James H. Evans first began the operations of Evans Tank Line with only one hauling truck in Southern California. A few years later, Evans was hauling crude oil, asphalt and road oils. After James Evans passed away in 1948, his son Cleo Evans was appointed the position of General Manager. Cleo created the first method to allow outside carriers to deliver their products directly into service stations, known as “Volume Tender Rates”. Consequently, shippers depended more on service from outside carriers. Evans also engineered the first equipment to haul 9,400 gallons of gasoline, which was 600 gallons more than previously hauled.
Today, the operating company is known as “Evans Dedicated Systems, Inc”. The Company’s primary goal has been to transport petroleum products throughout Southern California. Over the last few years, Evans Dedicated has expanded its business plan by adding new terminals and capabilities, including the ability to haul general commodities. Although the majority of Evans hauling occurs in California, Nevada and Arizona, the company is certified to transport products anywhere in the United States. Evans’ fleet travels approximately 9,000,000 miles and delivers over 120,000 loads each year, with an average age of six years across the Company’s 97 trucks. Their trucks and trailers are modern and efficient, with extremely well trained and qualified drivers. Evans is dedicated to the highest standards of service, innovation, safety, reliability and efficiency to meet the demands of their customers.
