Eleven Years of Red Classic

For the last 11 years, Red Classic has been operating as a wholly owned subsidiary of Coca-Cola Consolidated and a premier logistics fleet within the United States.

Eleven years ago, Red Classic officially commercialized as a for-hire carrier and has since been serving customers throughout much of the eastern U.S.

Red Classic came to fruition when leaders at our parent company, Coca-Cola Consolidated, decided to invest in other revenue streams. With a fleet of first-rate equipment and excellent drivers, commercializing their transportation division seemed like an obvious advancement.

Since its inception, Red Classic has expanded to more than 80 fleet maintenance facilities, with more than 1,100 teammates and more than 31,000 carrier partners. Today, Red Classic offers a diverse array of solutions to meet our customers’ transportation and maintenance needs, and the industry is taking note, recognizing Red Classic as a Top 100 For-Hire Carrier on Transport Topics’ annual ranking three years in a row.

Thank you to all of our teammates who are living out our Company’s Purpose and Values and who continue to make Red Classic a success! We can’t wait to see what the next 11 years brings us.
