Covenant Transport, Inc. is a truckload carrier headquartered in Chattanooga, Tennessee.[1] The company provides temperature controlled trucking, regional delivery, and longhaul delivery.[2]

It began operations on January 2, 1986,[3] with 25 trucks and 50 trailers. The company now jointly operates over 2,700 trucks and 7,000 trailers with the companies Southern Refrigerated Transport Inc. (Texarkana, Arkansas) and Star Transportation Inc. (Nashville).[citation needed] The three companies have shared terminals in Chattanooga, Hutchins, Texas, Pomona, California, Texarkana, and Nashville.[citation needed]

On August 12, 2011, Factory & Steel Transportation, Inc. (Fastrans) of Tennessee announced that its van operations would be acquired by Covenant. A letter issued to Fastrans' customers by Mark Paré, Covenant's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, stated that the acquisition would increase the company's access to the Canadian transportation market.[citation needed]
