Our Story

“We believe in supporting our people, building satisfying careers, continuously focusing on our customers and partners, and planning for financial growth alongside our clients. We’ll gladly say 'no' on business that isn’t the right fit – we’re looking for long-term relationships that can be cultivated over time. Our first investment in West Memphis, Arkansas gave us the opportunity to diligently scale our leadership team. These individuals are zeroed in on serving others and approaching company culture as ONETEAM. We’re excited to be focused on growing organically with private business owners who have a common vision for both value creation and a dedication to their people, customers, and partners.” - Stu & Terry Towner Jaguar Transport Holdings, LLC was created in early 2018 by Terry and Stu Towner. Using their industry knowledge and personal core values as guidance, this father, son duo set out to grow in rail, port, and transload services. The first purchase came in January 2018 with the West Memphis Base Railroad and was quickly followed by the development of a West Memphis Transload facility. In 2020, the Jaguar network grew by 94% with the addition of eight separate operations. Becoming a premier transportation company, the Jaguar team continues to push forward in sustainability, innovation, and business development.
