Northern Kentucky Trucking

We have a fleet of four trucks with various trailers from flatbeds, step decks to RGN’s (Double Drops). We have a flip axle so that we are able to haul heavier pieces of machinery. Adding to our versatility, we have ramps for loading vehicles and various wheeled machinery on to our step decks.

Our History

American Lighthouse Transportation started in 1998 with one truck, a step deck, and a dream. Our founder, Joel Howell grew up around trucks his entire life. His father was an over-the-road truck driver and Joel would accompany his father Skip during the summers when he was a young boy and out of school. He would help his father tarp and secure loads, navigate to various locations around the country and really seemed to have a knack for making freight connections. This was back when freight was found by making calls from a land line telephone and when you had to call a long list of contacts or sit in a truck stop watching an electronic load board. Then after he completed his school, Joel became a submariner in the United States Navy for roughly 6 years. But the trucking industry kept calling him back. Joel decided to embrace his dream and start his own trucking company. Over the years Joel’s dream has grown to meet our customers needs. We now have a fleet of four trucks with drivers who have years of experience, are professional, hard working and very knowledgeable about the industry.

Trucking Experience

Our drivers are seasoned professionals that have an average of 18+ years of experience under their belt. In addition, our dispatchers and administrative staff are backed by 20+ of experience and taught to not only focus on coordinating the movement of a load for a customer, but also to meet each individual customers specific needs. 

We Know and Respect You

We know that with larger freight companies, you can sometimes get lost in the crowd, but we enjoy working with customers, getting to know them, understanding their unique needs and meeting those needs. It is our desire to build long lasting mutually beneficial relationships with our customers. We want to be a valuable extension of your team. 

Securing Your Load Is a Priority

We care deeply about running a safe operation for the safety of your shipment and to those who share with road with us. We use extra padding and belting, when needed, to protect the surface areas of machinery and products that have been newly fabricated, milled, newly planed, or rebuilt to ensure they arrive in the same condition they were sent.

Special Attention Given to Tarping

Over the years, our management and drivers have learned the best way to tarp shipments. We also take extra care to keep our tarps free and clear of dirt and grime. We regularly repair our tarps to ensure they don’t have rips and holes. If load requires tarping, we make every effort to make sure your shipment arrives dry and in the best condition possible.
