“It is only through the dedication and hard work of thousands of loyal Estes employees that my grandfather’s dream has been sustained through so many decades of growth and change,” says Robey W. Estes Jr. “We would like to use this occasion to express our gratitude to all those who worked hard to build Estes Express Lines into what it is today.”
