D.D. Jones turns over trucking operation to AIS

After 86 years, D.D. Jones Transfer and Warehouse Co. has dropped out of the transportation industry. The initials emblazoned on the Chesapeake operation’s 31 trucks have been replaced with the red shield of Charleston, S.C.-based Atlantic Intermodal Services.

“AIS was willing to take on our entire trucking staff at their Norfolk operations – 50 drivers,” D.D. Jones President Robert Jones Jr. said, “so the transition was relatively painless for our staff and our customers.”
