Spindale has a prominent trucking industry, thanks to large companies like Razor Transport, Carolina Cargo Express, Shehan's, and A.V. Dedmon Trucking. This may be due to the large highways that go through this area, including U.S. Highway 74. Spindale is a fairly small town with just over 4,300 residents.
