Gahr Family Story


St. James Transports was founded in 2001 by Scott Gahr in St. James, MO with a fleet of 20 trucks and management staff of three office personnel operating from a home-based facility. Today, SJT has grown to a fleet of over 80 company and lease drivers serving all 48 continental United States. Our mission is to continue to grow in a positive direction maintaining a focus on total customer satisfaction and fleet safety. We take pride in the professionalism of our drivers.

Our Operations Manager, Angela Kimberlin started out dispatching many years ago and worked her way up in the company through hard work and dedication. She has held every position in the company at some point in time. Angela holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education. She is highly committed to customer satisfaction. Her leadership and training are beneficial to everyone that works with her. In addition to being our Operations Manager, she is also a wife and mother of three.
