Hermann Services, Inc has been a pillar of the trucking and warehouse industry in New Jersey since the company’s founder, Fred J. Hermann, bought his first truck and delivered watermelons for one of its first customers, A & P Supermarket, in 1927.
Now a fourth generation owned and operated family business, Hermann has grown from transporting watermelons to overseeing a fleet of 250 drivers with 500 trailers across New Jersey and Texas that ship nationwide and over 2 million square feet of contract and public warehousing. At Hermann Services, customers get the personal touch from an experienced top management team that has roots in New Jersey and Middlesex County, according to CEO & President Jeff Hermann.
Hermann Services, Inc. prides itself on being a company that not only creates local jobs but is heavily involved with the community and, in particular, non-profits.
“Our roots started in Middlesex County and while our services have grown, we continue to support New Jersey, its local organizations, and its residents through the creation of new jobs,” said Hermann.
A new Hermann Services, Inc. corporate office is being built in Middlesex County, with a grand reopening expected in May 2022 to mark 95 years since the company’s inception in May 1927. Plans for the new building include a mini-museum filled with items that will help tell the story of the company. The building will also feature a fully-restored White Truck driven by the founder.
The company continues to expand throughout Middlesex County and other parts of New Jersey recently opening a 245,000 square foot warehouse in North Brunswick, NJ and 120,000 square foot location in Bordentown, NJ to support its growing ventures.
Through its philanthropic initiative, Hermann Cares, the company has been very actively involved with many different nonprofit organizations. “We have made volunteering and giving back an important part of our culture here,” Hermann said.
Starting in 2005 at its Houston, TX facility, Hermann began its annual campaign to support the Marines Toys for Tots. Each year, since then the company continues to raise up to $50,000 a year from its operations in the Northeast and in Texas.
Hermann said the company is also pleased about a recent partnership with “Project Protect our Children,” the company has specially designed two trailers with important information that will travel around New Jersey and Texas. In the coming weeks, Project Protect our Children will launch a “Spot the Trailer” to help raise awareness surrounding human trafficking.

Hermann Services, Inc. is also working on becoming greener, eager to add electric trucks to its fleets in 2023, with a goal of reducing carbon emissions and building out a sustainable infrastructure, in Middlesex County. (See below).
As a longtime MCRCC member, Hermann TDS has sponsored and supported many Chamber events including the Meet the Mayors series and annual Bernie Cohn Golf Classic.
“Our membership in the Chamber has allowed us to network with local business, executives and government officials that have support services in the area as well as national services where needed,” said Hermann. “The chamber continues to support us by connecting our business with other companies where our services may be needed.”
