I’m one of North America’s largest trucking companies and “Your Hometown National Carrier.” I was created in 1990 by four cousins with the same last name and 80 years of trucking experience between them. Today I run a fleet of more than 3,600 tractors and 8,500 trailers from 27 strategically located service centers nationwide. The principal types of freight I transport include consumer staples, retail, paper products, packaging/plastics, manufacturing and import/export commodities.
I also operate some subsidiaries, in brokerage services (serving shippers and carriers) and refrigeration. Customers can track their loads on my Web site. Who am I?
