WE ARE TEAM JAKE

We are located in Southern Oregon but you can live in other areas and still join our team. We operate a modern well-maintained fleet of tractors that are fully equipped for driver comfort. The trailer types consist of dry vans, flatbeds and taut-liners (curtain vans).  Our drivers have the option as to the type of equipment they wish to operate. A&M Transport is family owned and we value your family and respect your home time. We make every effort to accommodate driver schedules and route requests, all while maintaining our A+ service to our customers.

Who’s Jake?

When Andy Owens Sr. purchased his first truck in 1972, he decided that he needed a mascot. Not just any ole mascot was going to do; he wanted a unique mascot that would be recognized throughout the industry as one that stood for safety, superior service and affordability.

The Owens family has always supported the local School District in Glendale Oregon which proudly supports a Pirate as their mascot. Andy Sr. made the decision to keep a Pirate theme for his mascot so with the help of a local sign maker, he came up with a unique design totally opposite of the school district; Thus Jake was born!

Some question if Jake is smiling or growling. Rest assured, he is indeed a happy Pirate and he’s always smiling as he rides up and down the interstates and highways delivering the goods. Many have gone so far as to consider him the Guardian Angel of the A&M fleet.
