In 1991, Truckmen was founded by Jeff Jenks with 33,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space in Geneva, OH, located right on I-90. Based on a set of core principals: unmatched professionalism, reliability, cost-efficiency and outstanding customer service, Jeff grew a base of satisfied customers that moved him to expand the Company’s services.
To meet his customers’ needs, Jeff added three cab-over trucks for local and over-the-road trips. Over the next few years, as the Company’s customer base grew even larger, he added 10 new trailers and expanded its operations to include the properties adjacent to the Truckmen warehouse. He created what is known today as the Truckmen Campus in an ideal location for local and regional transport, as well as transport to the lower 48 states when necessary.
More than 20 years after Jeff started Truckmen, the Company now offers comprehensive supply chain services: Over 40 tractors and 100 trailers for both dedicated and standard transport, a 150,000 sq. ft. warehouse campus, inventory management, brokerage services and expert vehicle maintenance.
