In 1985, Lloyd T. Little founded James River Petroleum. With just three tank wagon trucks, the company began distributing heating oil, diesel fuel, and gasoline to residential and commercial customers in the Richmond, Virginia area. Our goal from the start was to be the best fuel partner we could be.
As Lloyd would say, “I get up each morning, to make sure my customers can sleep at night. Dependable service, reliable pricing and personal attention are as important as the products we provide.”
Today, James River Petroleum, Inc. is a privately held, technology-driven, nationwide distributor of retail and wholesale petroleum products. Specifically, James River Petroleum, Inc. and its affiliates include James River Solutions (2005) and Eastern Transportation (2008). Why do customers turn to us?
