Tobin Cassels is a Christian businessman!
"Today our company has almost 7,000 employees operating out of 76 service centers in 12 states and Puerto Rico. We have approximately 2,700 tractors and 7,300 trailers. Our annual revenue in 2007 will be approximately $740 million."
Southeastern was started by my grandfather, Toby Cassels. My grandfather and another man by the name C.L. Fuller owned a small trucking company named Southern States Motor Lines in the late 1940's that had operating authority between South Carolina and Georgia and South Carolina and North Carolina. In 1950, the two men decided to divide the company and to go their separate ways. My grandfather started Southeastern Freight Lines with operating authority between South Carolina and Georgia. Mr. Fuller opened Fuller Transport and operated between South Carolina and North Carolina. At the time Southeastern had five trucks, 20 employees and a $5,000 loan.
