Wooster Motor Ways, Inc.(WMW) was established in 1964 by a group of business leaders as an intrastate transportation company providing specialized cartage services for local businesses in Wooster, Ohio and the surrounding area.    In 1970, the company obtained an interstate Motor Carrier Authority and expanded into regional truckload transportation to complement its local delivery service.   After more than 10 years of success, the company was purchased by Mr. Ken Beaverson in 1975.   In the following years, Mr. Beaverson developed WMW to be a full service logistics company offering complete supply chain services including warehousing, cross-dock facilities, local LTL and diesel engine and trailer repair and maintenance.

In 1987, WMW was purchased by Mr. Paul E. Williams and is still owned and operated by members of the Williams family including son and current president Mr. Paul M. Williams.    Over the past 30+ years with the Williams family at the helm, the company has moved back to its roots in focusing on its core competency; dedicated, local and OTR transportation services.    In 1997, the company constructed a brand new facility West of Wooster, Ohio including main headquarters, terminal/dispatch operations, maintenance facility, cross-dock and a spacious yard for truck domicile and trailer staging.
