Black-owned family business finds success in trucking

A loan fund supported by WEDC help solve critical cash flow problems

MADISON, WI. JUNE. 3, 2021 – A family-owned trucking company that got its big break thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic is growing by focusing on creating generational wealth for Milwaukee’s Black community.

“We see nothing but opportunity,” said Pastor W. Aaron Robbins Sr., who founded A&A Services and Transportation, Inc., with his wife, Laci Coppins Robbins, last year.

A&A is a subcontractor working primarily for FedEx. The company works on three separate routes running three Sprinter vans on a package pickup and delivery route in the West Allis area and two “line haul” routes with two semitrucks each carrying a double-trailer running from Illinois to the Milwaukee area.
