About Us

What We’re All About 

From our humble beginning in 1994, when JMT Trucking only had a fleet of 3 trucks, to our present fleet of 84 trucks, JMT Trucking has always operated as a family business. Quality and safety has always been our number one goal. We believe in cultivating honest business relationships based on integrity. 


JMT Trucking has two locations, Des Moines, Iowa and Ames, Iowa. From these two locations, we have the ability to effectively serve the Central Iowa area. When you add our modern fleet of trucks to our highly trained drivers, we are able to offer a very level of quality service. Our drivers are put through a rigorous training program and are continually learning how to do their jobs in a way that will help our customers complete their projects safely and on time.


JMT Trucking has the experience to service construction jobs of all types and sizes, including residential, commercial, heavy highway and agricultural. Our management team, which consists of the founder/president of JMT Trucking, the operations manager and the sales manager, has 53 years of combined service and experience. Our driver team has over 430 years of service and experience with the company. We also have a team of highly trained and qualified dispatchers that work from our central location in Des Moines, Iowa. Based at the crossroads of I-35 and I-80, they are conveniently located and are always eager to provide the level of service that our customers have come to expect. Our 4 dispatchers have over 30 years of experience in the industry.

As you can see, with all of our experience throughout the company, we feel confident that we have the knowledge and skills to assist our customers regardless of the situation. To further benefit our customers, we have implemented GPS radio tracking systems in each of our trucks. This system allows our dispatchers to know exactly where each truck is located and what they are carrying so we can better communicate with our customers.
