Mike Morgan left his corporate management and franchisee roles at Checkers and Rally’s drive-in restaurants to pursue a career in interstate transportation in 1999. Over the next 15 years Mike grew this company from one truck to a fleet of 35 trucks operating around the Country pulling primarily flatbed and oversized freight.
In 2005 Mr. Morgan moved his headquarters to Lincoln, Alabama where he also opened a diesel repair shop to the public. Out of necessity Mr. Morgan began to purchase and operate pilot / escort vehicles to provide services for his trucking company – and soon after began offering pilot / escort services to other carriers as well.
Mr. Morgan noticed the lack of professionalism in this industry and in 2014 helped form Pit Row Services with the goal of providing specialized carriers a solution to the lack of trained, certified, and properly insured pilot/escort operators readily available to use.
Pit Row has grown to become among the largest fleet of company owned pilot / escort vehicles in the country – and evolved into also providing the entire specialized transportation industry knowledge and insight regarding the safe and legal operation of pilot / escort vehicles.
