In 1959, R.D. Moseley, a cornerstone of South Carolina trucking, bought a truck with $950 out of a $1,000 loan, leaving him with $50 in working capital. A graduate of The Citadel in South Carolina, he took the idea of his alma mater’s mascot to name his new company. Thus, Bulldog Hiway Express was born, and R.D. began delivering loads throughout the state of South Carolina.
Today, more than five decades later, the company is led by Rod Moseley, Jr. and Phil Byrd, Sr., a past chairman of the American Trucking Associations. Bulldog Hiway Express handles dedicated and for-hire, open-deck operations, intermodal port deliveries and heavy hauls with loads up to 180,000 pounds. The company operates throughout the United States and Canada with an emphasis on supporting the automotive and energy sectors, including wind, solar and nuclear power.
Bulldog’s culture, especially their focus on safety and driver retention, shines through as they are ranked among the best in the industry for CSA scores and driver retention rates.
