Southeast Toyota Distributors is the world’s largest independent distributor of Toyotas. The company was established in 1968 when Jim Moran partnered with Toyota Motor Sales to help expand the automaker’s presence in the U.S. market. Today, Southeast Toyota distributes vehicles, parts and accessories to more than 175 independent Toyota dealerships in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. The company helps its dealers sell nearly 20 percent of all Toyotas in the nation through innovative sales and marketing programs, customer service, accessory development, fleet sales, and transportation and logistics.
Our auto-transport company Southeast Transportation Systems, Inc. (STS) was established in July 2000 to better serve our dealers. Once vehicles are processed, getting them to dealers' lots and showrooms in perfect condition becomes a top priority. STS operates a fleet of more than 102 trucks; each truck is capable of hauling upwards of 200 vehicles each month to dealers across the Southeast, many with innovative technology to minimize emissions, with plans for future expansion.
