We Handle Everything

If a product has to move by truck—and almost everything does—there's a good chance Ruan has hauled it or something similar. We have experience hauling goods in all of the following industries:

Bulk Food Grade and Dairy

We've been transporting dairy and food-grade products since the early 1950s. With complicated logistics, sanitation measurements and tracking, food-grade bulk transport is a significant challenge. Nevertheless, Ruan's professional drivers and robust training have made us a leader in this field. We have the agility to respond to often-fluctuating schedules, and our innovations are helping customers ship more for less. We provide Kosher certification where necessary. Ruan has expertise in hauling fluid milk, cream, whey, wine, juice, vinegar, edible oil, liquid sweetener, purified water, spirits, liquid eggs, liquid chocolate, sugar, and more.
