“How did you get into the trucking business?”

I hear this a lot. I got in to transportation out of high school, knowing it wasn’t in the cards for me to go to college. I worked for a large very innovative truck line, who back in the late 70’s was shipping their trailers on the rail. I was exposed to all the Class 1 railroads, and ultimately that exposure helped me establish some strong relationships with the railroads.

We have gone from offering strictly over the road services, to transitioning to about 25% rail and 25% dedicated fleet. We have managed distribution for job sites, warehoused for McDonalds, and several others, and many other significant tasks for our customers to allow them to focus on their core strengths.
