National Distributors was founded in the late 1980’s by brothers Robert and Jerry Vaughn as a long haul truckload carrier servicing the Midwest to the West Coast. Robert and Jerry had been involved in trucking their entire lives and had worked closely with their father Frazier Vaughn who had owned and operated Victory Freightways for many years. Jerry Vaughn passed away in 1994 after a serious illness and Robert continued to operate National Distributors. Robert’s sons Keith and Eric Vaughn became active in the business at an early age and learned the business through many years of hands on experience. Today Keith is President and CEO and Eric is the COO and company continues to operate from a family perspective. As third generation truckers, Keith and Eric take tremendous pride in National Distributors and the services provided to our valued customers and employees.
