Over sixty years ago, Westwood Cartage, Inc. was established to handle both long and short haul, driver leasing, dedicated transportation and government contracts. John J. McCarthy. Jr, became the third generation as he took over the Company. Today, there are two divisions of Westwood Cartage ... the Cranston, RI division handling long and short haul for many Fortune 500 companies and the Springfield, MA, division handling the Post Office contracts.
In July, 2009, John J. McCarthy, Jr. passed away suddenly. His spouse, Carol Gray McCarthy, immediately took over as Chairman/CEO, a role she still maintains. The Company was able to continue with business as usual, keeping the same loyal management, staff and clientele.
Today, Westwood Cartage, Inc. continues to grow to new heights while maintaining the same principles upon which it was founded over 125 years ago.
