About Us

Hammer was established in 1990, a small Carrier with only one truck and today we operate forty plus units between our local and road operation. We have taken care to hire and maintain a strong fleet of Owner Operators. Safety and Service are our top priority.

Locally we provide service both door and cross-town in the Chicago land area seven days a week. Hammer’s road fleet operates six days a week, in twelve Mid-West States ( to include but not limited to: IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI, MN, MO, NE, OH, TN, WI ) and also offer service to various ports(to include but not limited to FL, GA, NY, NJ, TX, VA - rates upon request).


Both locally and road, Hammer is a Bonded Drayman and Haz-Mat Certified. In our equipment pool, we can provide Tri-Axles and have full access to all rail and steamship line provided chassis to include COCP, DCLI and Trac Lease.


Finally, Hammer is fully automated in its Operations and Accounting functions which utilize EDI. Hammer has completed full web site integration which allows customers to check load status, view and print documents, rates, e-mail and more right from our web site. Allowing our Customers private access to operations for instant information.
