RMX Freight Systems is a family-owned trucking company that provides the highest quality, next day LTL service in the State of Ohio and bordering points in Kentucky, Michigan and West Virginia.
Originally founded in Roseville, Ohio in 1917 to operate as a regular route carrier, RMX served a thriving pottery industry located in the Crooksville – Roseville area. RMX ran a regular route with scheduled stops between McLuney and Zanesville, Ohio via State Route 93. Shipments of pottery were gathered from the various manufacturers located along the route and were tendered to the railroad in Zanesville for delivery to destinations as far away as the west coast. Long haul common carrier service as we know it today was not yet in existence!
Once empty in Zanesville, the truck would make various pick ups for delivery along the route back to Roseville. These deliveries varied from kegs of nails for the local hardware, to groceries for the market, to pharmaceuticals for the drug store. This service was vital to these communities. It was slow going for the old truck with solid rubber tires, normally taking all day to make the forty mile round trip.
