KLLM Transport Services is among the 14 small American businesses that received the 2006 American Spirit Award, which salutes efforts in disaster areas affected by 2005’s hurricanes. The award, presented by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), celebrates America’s entrepreneurial spirit.
Richland MS-based KLLM operates a fleet of temperature-controlled trailers, trucks, and dry-haul vans. Its carriers shipped goods and relief supplies to Gulf Coast areas decimated by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. The company said several of its drivers volunteered to make repeated trips to help the most severely impacted areas recover.
KLLM used about 75 of its cargo trailers to haul goods and supplies to damaged areas.
