Digby Family History

As an extension of Digby Transportation, ColtonCooper Logistics has never forgotten its Digby roots. Digby’s Golden Arrow Trucking Company first began back in 1934, and it was founded by W.J. Digby. W.J. Digby had been running a prosperous produce stand in the area, and as the produce stand continued to grow, he eventually bought a truck to transport the produce. One truck lead to two trucks, and so on and so forth. Before he knew it, W.J. Digby had founded several trucking companies. Today, the Digby Family is one of the leading providers of transportation in the United States.  

Over four generations later, ColtonCooper Logistics would be born. ColtonCooper Logistics is proud to continue the Digby family name and business.
