Jeff Blakeman formed Blakeman Transportation Inc. with his father and brother in 1988 as a broker of mainly dry freight. Within three years, BTI had expanded into consolidated shipping for the frozen and refrigerated sector, delivering product to the 48 contiguous United States and Canada. Today BTI hauls not only frozen and refrigerated truck load but also dry, flatbed, ocean, air, expedited and straight truck just about anywhere.
Blakeman also has ownership and involvement in Blakeman Investments, Cold Leasing, Kool Express and Trick and Treat Performance.
While earning a BBA in Marketing at Texas Tech University, Blakeman was active in Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and the Bodybuilding and Powerlifting Association. His first job after graduation was as a sales representative for Fruehauf Corporation.
BTI yearly supports several organizations, including Texas Tech, American Cancer Society, Huntington's Disease Research, Doctors Without Borders, American Heart Association, Susan G. Komen For the Cure and Operation Homefront for military personnel and their families.
