In 1988 Alabama Motor Express, Inc. (AMX) was formed by Scott White. Scott went out and found an investor and started with 2 trucks. While he knew this was a risky move, he felt confident his knowledge and experience from growing up in & around the industry would pull through in the end. Since then AMX has acquired several of its competitors and grown to as high as 480 trucks.
Collins & Taylor (Brothers) grew up around the trucking business as their dad is the founder of AMX. Their beginnings started in the maintenance department changing tires, draining oil, and learning the ins and outs of how trucks work, eventually moving into accounting and operations to learn the business side of the trucking industry. Their father Scott wanted them to learn the business from the ground up and also learn the importance of a good work ethic. This proved valuable experience & knowledge to Taylor & Collins and they try to translate that into their work every single day. Collins & Taylor are committed to the success of AMX and are very excited to carry on the proud family tradition.
After growing up in the trucking business Collins graduated from the University of Alabama in 2010. After graduation Collins then joined AMX, he started out in the operations department as a dispatcher eventually focusing mainly on Logistics & Sales.
Collins lives in Dothan Alabama with his wife Jessie. He loves to play golf, loves cooking, and also enjoys spending time with family at the beach.
Rodney started in the LTL business with Averitt Express and then Yellow Freight after graduating from Auburn University in 1991. Rodney transitioned to the TL business when he was hired at Summerford Truck Line in 1993. Alabama Motor Express acquired Summerford in 1997. Rodney has been involved in several aspects of the business since 1997 (operations, accounting, and pricing).
Away from work he enjoys spending time with his family and attending Auburn football games.
