A.F. (Buck) Rountree
A. L. Rountree
was founded in December of 1945 by A.F. (Buck) Rountree and
his son A. L. (Lavern) Rountree, as Rountree Transfer & Storage.
Together they built a sizable customer base and became the first
North American agent in South Florida.
Over the next few years the demand for special handling
of Machinery, commodities for Florida Power & Light
and Southern Bell became a large part of the business
During the period of regulation the need for statewide authority
was necessary to accommodate customer demands. At this time
with Southern Florida growing and the demand for Heavy Haul
authority was also obtained. Lavern participated in PSC rate
hearings which established the rates promulgated for the industry
and Rountree became one of the largest heavy haulers in the
state of Florida. They were instrumental in transporting some
of the first concrete bridge beams used to rebuild the bridges
in the lower Keys using 2 tractors or tractors & steerable dollies,
extendable trailers and jeep dollies, large transformers for
FP&L, pre-stressed concrete and numerous oversize loads for
Walt Disney World & Epcot!
In the seventies Lavern's sons, daughter and son-in-law joined
him in the business. The guys learned the business "from the
ground up"! In the eighties the company was so prominent in
the transportation & rigging aspect of the industry that they
re-organized the company and changed the name to "Rountree Transport
& Rigging, Inc." which better described the full capabilities
of the company.
Rountree has expanded its authority and scope of operations
to include the southeastern US and performs rigging projects
in these areas as well as the Bahamas & the Virgin Islands.
