Swift Transportation

 

COMPANY HISTORY:


Swift is no doubt one of the kings of trucking.  This company has a massive fleet of over 15,000 trucks.  Swift is a publicly traded on the New York stock exchange under the sticker symbol  SWFT.  Here’s a quote from Wikipedia about Swift Transport.

Carl Moyes was a truck driver hauling produce for C. R. England Trucking in the 1940s out of northern Utah. In the late 1950s Betty and Carl Moyes started a small trucking company in Plain City, Utah, B & C Truck Leasing, and after their son, Jerry, graduated from Weber State University in 1966, they moved the small company to Phoenix, Arizona. Carl, and his two sons, Ronald and Jerry (vice-president), formed the company, as Common Market, in Arizona, that would become Swift. [WIKIPEDIA]
