Putting drivers first is helping Trekker transform every aspect of their operation


Content Sponsored by Trekker

An Illinois-based trucking company has evolved and found surprising success by putting their drivers first — no matter what.

Family-run St. Louis-headquartered trucking company Trekker (previously known as Henderson Trucking) has been in business since 1946. Since the company was founded, they’ve grown to a robust fleet of approximately 200 trucks serving customers throughout the midwest, including Iowa, Denver, Dallas, and Fort Worth.

In the company’s more than 75 years of operation within the trucking industry, they’ve had to adapt to a lot — but the company has survived and thrived, thanks to strong roots and a commitment to treating both workers and customers like family.

Today, Trekker company leaders are forging a path to success by putting driver needs at the top of their priority list. Trekker has ordered day-to-day operations and strategy based on driver safety and driver satisfaction.

“We chose our Trekker Triangle [freight lanes] because we had more drivers from the Midwest so they could get home more, there was more available parking in our routes, fuel on average was significantly cheaper, and the accident frequency was way down,” explained Trekker’s Director of Operations Aaron Lacy.
