Ensign Emmett Pope founded the company in 1919 after his service in World War I. We began as a coal hauling business from a horse-drawn wagon. In 1938, he added delivery of home heating oil to his growing list of services and the bridge to bring Pope Transport into the future began.

Olive, NC, over 50 trucks, over 85 trailers and eight dispatch terminals with offices in Selma, Greensboro, and Charlotte, NC and Charleston, North Augusta, Lexington and Greenville, SC with a corporate office in Mt.
