With the help of a friend Bruce got his class A license and worked for a local Antelope Valley trucking company as a teamster apprentice. After a couple of years, he realized he didn't want to be just an employee.

Today, after close to 40 years of Trucking, the company has grown to 8 truck & trailers, and a reputation for clean, well maintained equipment, and professional employees.
