About Us

Built on tradition and geared for the future.

In the 1930’s a company named Central Van & Storage was formed to service the warehousing needs of the city of Nashville preparing for the second World War. A merger in 1966 created the currently named company, Central-Cumberland Corporation, of which Robert E. Cowan, Sr. and Robert E. Cowan Jr. were principle owners. Robert Cowan Jr. continued at the helm of the company until his son and third generation owner, Leland J. Cowan, joined him in 1992. Today, Leland holds the position of President and General Manager.

Central-Cumberland has been a member of the International Logistics and Warehouse Association, formerly the AWA, for over 60 years and currently supports the local and national Chambers of Commerce as well as the Nashville Better Business Bureau. Over these past 60 plus years, we’ve grown from a local into a national business. The company currently owns or operates facilities totaling nearly 265,000 square feet of space, featuring all the latest technology in warehousing and logistics, and providing full service to a diversity of industries.

The family business is said to be the strongest fiber in the fabric of American business, please give us a call and let us provide a partnership that has unlimited potential.
