About Us

about First Call Trucking

Our Story:


Born and raised in Boston, John DeFazio, Sr. was in the transportation industry before the combustible engine was mainstream, delivering meat and produce via horse and carriage to vendors throughout Boston’s historic North End.

As the motor vehicle became universal, John Sr hopped on the proverbial bandwagon and purchased a truck, thereby becoming one of Boston’s first local same-day/rush truckers in Boston.

In 1995 First Call Trucking moved from a one-room office in the South End to a 2,000 square foot warehouse in South Boston’s Marine Industrial Park. In addition to same-day/rush trucking, we also began to provide warehousing, storage and distribution for a number of clients not just in Boston, but also nationally.

As the industry has evolved, so has First Call.  We now reside in Beverly, Mass with a niche in air-freight, inside P&D’s, and the delivery of time sensitive materials.  Our clients range from freight forwarders and customs house brokers to bio-tech and manufacturing companies.  Through not just decades but over a century, the First Call ethos has remained the same: our goal has always been and remains to provide our clients with exceptional service, accurate quotes, and fair pricing.
