Tradition and Heritage of LANIGAN Worldwide Moving and Warehousing

Southern Heritage is now Lanigan Worldwide Moving & Warehousing. Southern Heritage Transfer and Storage opened in 1949 and has been a local Jackson Mississippi ALLIED agent for 69 years. In 2018, Southern was purchased by Lanigan Worldwide Moving & Warehousing, another ALLIED Agent since 1955. The same dedicated team and staff now work for Lanigan Worldwide Moving & Warehousing.

Lanigan Storage and Van was founded by Edward J. Lanigan, Jr. in 1955 in Memphis, TN. Serving as a continuous interstate agent for Allied Van Lines, Lanigan also remains as one of the top Memphis moving companies. Edward Lanigan served as owner and president until his death in 1971. His sons, Edward “Jay” Lanigan and Dick Lanigan, assumed the ownership of the company until Dick’s retirement in 2000 and Jay’s death in 2007. With the death of Jay Lanigan, his wife, Lynn, assumed the role of president until her retirement in July 2015. The company has been qualified as a Woman Business Enterprise since 2007.

The company was purchased in July 2015 by long-time employees; Mitzi Lyne, President, Shannon Hollingsworth, Director/Shareholder, John Lyne, Vice President/Operations and Rodney Hollingsworth, CFO.
