Since Floyd Wright started with one truck in 1969, Affton has been committed to making a difference through our people and our business relationships. Today our company is still owned and operated by the Wright family. A few years might have passed since 1969 but one thing that has not changed is the desire to provide excellent service for our customers and a great working environment for our employees.
Affton is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in the dry bulk industry. From 2 sleeper trucks, 2 pneumatic tanks and 18 railcar spots when we started, to our ever expanding assets of 25 sleeper trucks with blowers, 42 pneumatic tanks and over 225 railcar spots between our St. Louis, MO and Kansas City, KS terminals.
As a value added service to our bulk plastic customers we have opened over 100k square feet of warehouse space.
Since 1969, the heart of Affton has been our intermodal trucking operation. From a single truck, Affton Trucking has grown to a company owned fleet of over 55 late-model trucks.
We are the home to some of the world’s largest steamship lines and chassis providers and provide a unique level of service unmatched in our industry – capacity to store 10,000 units.
If you are looking to transfer one truck or multiple railcars of agricultural products into containers Affton is your solution in the St Louis market.
