Camas Transport Inc. was founded in 1982. We are a registered Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) property broker (MC#164358) serving all 48 contiguous states and Canada. We currently have contracts with several thousand motor carriers representing a multitude of equipment for our customers. We provide transportation services to many different industries including forest products, tanks, containers, formwork, construction products, pipe, machinery, and roofing to name a few.

Camas Transport is a closely knit organization of people with fifty plus years of collective experience in Transportation Management. Camas is owned and operated by Jan Lawson, President, and is a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE) in many states.

From the time an order is received, our brokers and dispatchers have immediate access to an on-line interactive database of available carriers and equipment to match with our customers' needs. For our carriers, we provide an available loads database that we can distribute via phone, e-mail or fax. Camas employees track a load from the time the order is taken until the load is delivered. Our brokers' real value added is continuous access provided from 5:30 am to 4:00 pm. If your shipment requires 24-hour coverage, our brokers are there to serve you. Upon request, references will be provided. Our focus is to provide our customers with the most efficient means of transportation delivering product where they want it, when they want it, at a competitive rate.


As a transportation broker, we perform a matching service, bringing together shippers and motor carriers. We, in effect, become the transportation department for the shipper and the sales department for the carrier. Our experienced professional brokers work with the shipper to determine their needs, and match those needs with the appropriate carrier.


Camas Transport has developed a customized, real-time interactive freight management database. This database is continuously updated with available loads and equipment. The system provides automated load confirmations, point-to-point mileage, and computerized rate quotes. This logistics tool enables Camas to supply its customers and carriers with the most current information. Specifically designed reports and historical information about your company may be provided upon request.


Camas Transport has contractual relationships with several thousand carriers nationwide including Canada. Our freight management system provides updated data on available carriers and equipment. We are in constant contact with our carriers from pick-up through delivery. Our network communicates our customer loads throughout the United States, maximizing exposure for our customers' freight movements. We assure protection for our customer loads by qualifying each of our carriers. Camas Transport requires a signed Broker/Carrier Contract, insurance certification, valid authority, good safety rating, and FHWA.

Our order entry system has checks and balances from the load confirmation through delivery. The real added value for our customer is the problem-solving abilities of our brokers. Our policy of follow-up and follow-through begins with your load order, and ends when we call to verify the load was delivered in accordance with your instructions.
