John Ruan began his company with one truck and one load during the depths of the Great Depression. Fueled by a desire to succeed, he soon turned that one truck into a fleet operating throughout the Midwest. 

Today, more than 86 years after that first load of gravel was shoveled by hand, Chairman John Ruan III and CEO Ben McLean-part of the third generation of the Ruan family-continue to operate and lead according to the principles set down by Mr. Ruan: integrity, hard work, innovation, quality customer service, and compassion. We have grown to more than 300 nationwide operations we operate 4,000 power units and 7,500 trailers, and we employ 5,400 team members. Our company has also expanded into banking, real estate development, export-import operations, and more.
