"We're now ready to take our company global and expand further into the Asian markets," stated company President Brian Hollis. Hollis Transport & Distribution has agreed through a local college to help educate a class of Asian
students on transportation and distribution." We're always looking ahead to the future in our business and it's a perfect situation for us and the students to work together,"
commented General Manager Alan Kocina. "Hollis Transport & Distribution already has several Asian customers and this program will enable us to open up communications with our current customers as well as
with new ones," Brian continued.
Hollis Transport donates their
distribution services to help feed the hungry in
"I was blind to the
idea that there were starving people in our
local community," stated company President
Brian Hollis. "Hollis Transport has a food grade
distribution division, and it was a perfect
opportunity to help feed thousands of people."
Kay Blackstock is the director of The
Mountain Food Bank in Gainesville, and she is the
driving force behind this program. "Without Kay's vision and determination
this program would have never gotten off the ground,"
Brian continued. Hollis Transport will be
donating their employees, warehouses,
forklifts, and trucks, to make this very important
program successful. "We have the most dedicated
employees, customers and vendors in the world,
and it is a no-brainer to share our great
fortunes with others," said Brian.

year," stated Brian Hollis. "All of our
distribution customers will be able to see their
inventory from a computer anywhere in the
world," Brian continued. The new Inventory Pro
System is completely internet-based, and a
simple click of the mouse will allow customers
to see their product transactions. "Customers
will log in to our web site using a personal
username and password. This will allow
them to access our state-of-the-art
inventory system," said General Manager, Alan Kocina.
Hollis Transport hits the road in a 1980 Peterbilt 359 Show Truck! "I grew up riding with
my dad in a 1957 Kenworth, and when I saw this
28-year-old Peterbilt, I knew it would be added
to our fleet," said Brian Hollis. Hollis
Transport has been in business for 29 years and
primarily runs day cabs in Georgia, but keep your
eye out for this truck out on Americas Highway!
"We're going to selectively haul some long haul
loads and present a great image for the company
at the same time," Brian continued. The Peterbilt will primarily stay domiciled at their
terminal in Flowery Branch, Georgia, but every now
and then, it will hit the open road with company
President Brian Hollis behind the wheel!
Southers has been promoted to the 48 State Brokerage Division

and employees have blessed us once again,"
stated Brian Hollis. "We've seen a tremendous
amount of growth over the past year in our
storage business and we're going to build a
brand new facility on our property here in
Flowery Branch, Georgia."
The new facility will include climate control,
sophisticated inventory systems that customers
can access their inventory 24 hours a day, and
many unique features never seen in the
distribution business. Jason Bowen of JEB
Enterprises is the contractor and is well known
locally for building a great building and
getting the job completed on time.
Hollis Transport & Distribution is making a
change in it's appearance, and the first thing
you'll notice is the new logo. "I designed the
old logo back in 1988, and I felt like it was
time to make a change," replied Brian Hollis.
Our entire company is constantly updating with
all of the technology available today, and I
felt like it was time to update our image also,"
Hollis Transport &
Distribution has just been awarded the
highest possible rating by the American
Institute of Commercial Warehousing. "We
just took our warehousing and distribution
business to a whole new level. We're the
only warehouse in Northeast Georgia that has

great honor to achieve it," stated Brian
Hollis. The food grade guidelines
include a strict cleanliness and
organizational routine as well as a complete
audit of the facility.
Hollis Distribution Services is expanding their
warehouse by 35,000 square feet. "We've picked

35,000 square feet is completed" said Brian. The
Hollis facility sits on 25 acres and plans are
to continue to build warehouses and develop an
industrial park. The newly named park will be
called " Falcons Corner Industrial Park"!
Hollis Transport contracts
with Top Hat Media Group to take care of their customers on hold. "It's inevitable that sooner or later you'll have to be put on hold when you call Hollis Transport, but have no fear, we have taken steps to overcome that boredom." says Brian Hollis.
Top Hat Media
Group produces a custom on-hold "story." It's not that annoying elevator music, it's an
interesting biography of the company. The somewhat comical voice of Bud Mercer is pleasing to the ears, and customers often request to be put back on hold. "Keep in mind that we
have voice mail, and Top Hat Media Group will keep you entertained if you have to be put on hold!"
replied Brian Hollis.
Mark Adams recently celebrated 25 years of employment with Hollis Transport. "Mark Adams is a role model to me and our company,"

Brian went on to say.

line equipment in our operation."
