About Us

As a leader in the liquid food-grade transportation industry for more than 45 years, Opies Transport is committed to innovative practices and superior service — for our customers and the experienced, professional drivers and staff who serve them each day.

Our History

Danny Opie started Opies Transport on July 1, 1976, two-hundred years and three days shy of the day that the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. His first location was on 8th street in Eldon, MO right next to the Cree-Mee and within three years they were serving major corporations such as Kraft Foods, Central Dairy, Prairie Farms, Mid-America Dairy Men, and Borden’s, with drivers traveling to 24 states.
In April of 1980, Mr. Opie moved the company’s terminal to the Western outskirts of Eldon, Missouri, operating 15 truck-tractors and 18 trailers. Since 1987, Opies has run all 48 states and Canada delivering liquid food materials to customers all over the U.S. In 1991, Opies Transport moved into a new terminal facility on the Eastern outskirts of Eldon, Missouri off of Highway 54 and has operated its headquarters for over 25 years. April 1, 1996 marked the first day of their satellite terminal in Memphis, TN.
