Above is a photo of my Grandpa Joe Smith back when he hauled grain and livestock and did some corn shelling for local farmers.
My purpose in sharing Grandpa Joe is to let you know that Trucking is in our DNA! It's a legacy that was started by him and was carried on by his son, Phil and his wife Rita and continues to this day with Phil's children, Pat, Mike and JoAnne, all owners who are active in running the day to day operations.
My Dad, brother and I all drove ourselves before moving into full time management positions in the company. We know what it's like to be out on the road, we ourselves delivered to many of the same places that we still go today. This experience has given us the unique ability that many other companies these days do not have, to run Smith Trucking from a Truck Drivers point of view.
Now that you know a little bit about how we got started let me share with you some of the benefits that you will get when you decide to become part of Smith Trucking.
