A corporation that handles the shipping of more than 50,000 cars, trucks, SUVs and vans a year has moved from downtown Camas to downtown Washougal.
Transport Holding Co., Inc., has leased the 3,080-square-foot Suite 230, in Washougal Town Square.
It operates six auto shipping brokerages. Three are based out of the Washougal office, and the other three are in Phoenix, Ariz.
Terry Williams, president and chief executive officer, splits his time between the two cities.
The brokerages in Washougal are Magic Carpet Auto Transport, Inc., Cascade Vehicle Shipping, Inc. and Domestic Auto Transport, Inc.
In Phoenix, there are Red Carpet Auto Transport, Inc., Top Notch Auto Transport, Inc. and The Car Transporters, Inc.
Transport Holding Co., Inc., contracts with more than 5,800 trucking companies in the U.S.
“The internet has really revolutionized our business,” Williams said.
He explained that 15 years ago, if a person wanted to get a vehicle from someone in another state, that person would possibly pay college students to drive the vehicle.
