The opportunity to proudly celebrate 60 years of safety and service in the transportation industry is no easy feat. That said, Roehl Transport has accomplished this impressive milestone! As a company that has been in operation since 1962, the company’s cornerstone values of safety and commitment have remained unchanged, though they’ve still grown quite a bit.
From a single truck in 1962 to a total of 2,250 now in 2022, Roehl is one of the safest and most successful companies currently operating in North America. The family-owned company was started by Everett Roehl, and he built it based on his family’s values. Six decades later, CEO Rick Roehl knows that safety is critical to the company’s success.

With a goal of becoming the best trucking company in America, the company is well on its way to accomplishing this, thanks to its ever-growing list of customer ratings and industry honors as well as awards.
