About Us

J. Rayl is a large, asset-based logistics company that has been family owned and operated since 1987. Founders Tim Rayl and Jim St. John began the company with only five trucks on a small private farm in Akron, OH. Since its humble beginnings, J. Rayl has grown tremendously but still maintains a family atmosphere that makes it one of the best trucking companies to work for. Tim Rayl remains active as the President and CEO of J. Rayl Transport.

J. Rayl provides reliable transportation and logistics solutions. With more than 400 employees and various strategically placed locations, the trucking business is able to meet the needs of a growing number of shippers, carriers and drivers throughout the U.S. and internationally. J. Rayl is also dedicated to sustainability. It reduces its carbon footprint to increase social responsibility and help shippers meet their corporate objectives. Some of the ways the company lessens environmental impact are by offering CNG fueling, running CNG trucks, and using effective training and equipment.

J. Rayl strives to make the roads safer for travel, the air cleaner for breathing, the customer service experience positive, and the business profitable for the people who find loads, ship freight, and join the J. Rayl team.
