Founded as Tidewater Battery – a single location focused on a single product line1953
Our customers have always come first
In 1953, Tidewater Fleet Supply was founded as a distributor of batteries. 68 years, 2,500+ customers, and 65 delivery vehicles later, we’ve grown beyond our hometown of Norfolk, Virginia to become one of the largest independent parts distributors in all of North America. We provide a vast catalog of parts—from hundreds of product lines—to thousands of customers across the Southeast. And we continually outpace the competition by providing distribution efficiencies and advantages, which we achieve by having our stores and distribution centers strategically located.
In 2016, TNT Parts joined forces with Tidewater Fleet Supply. TNT Parts roots can be traced back to the early 1980’s. Officially founded in 2000, TNT Parts offers heavy duty aftermarket solutions with an emphasis on customer service and product knowledge. TNT Parts is headquartered and has a distribution center in Atlanta, GA. The TNT Parts distribution center has a large team to ensure our branches stay stocked with the parts our customers need. TNT Parts’ experienced personnel and extensive supplier network provides our customers with the edge they need to excel in today’s competitive transportation industry. TNT Parts’ inventory includes quality parts and products from over 100 aftermarket providers that can be delivered with speed and efficiency by our dedicated shipping and delivery professionals. Key locations in the southeast allow TNT Parts to have superior supply chain management for national fleets as well as convenient retail locations for owner/operators. Whether you are responsible for one or many, TNT Parts is dedicated to finding solutions for you to keep your vehicles on the road.
In 2022 Tidewater Fleet Supply/TNT Part acquired D&J Supply. As a family owned and operated business for over 45 years in east Atlanta, D&J brings a wealth of knowledge in the aftermarket heavy duty truck parts industry combined with a talented team delivering exceptional customer service.
Today the combined company operates with 200 employees within 16 locations stretching from Richmond, VA to Orlando, FL.
