With over 60 years in the industry, American Freight continues to lead the way in the seemingly crowded trucking industry. Originally beginning in the 1960’s when founder Floyd Martin began his own trucking company, he started out with the same mission that American Freight continues to hold today – to provide consistent, reliable and affordable freight delivery services to their customers. As Floyds business grew and he partnered with Troy Hutchens the team realized the need for expansion and began the American Freight branch of their company in 2001. After 20 years in this division of the business, they continue to blow their competition out of the water and provide the best possible trucking services possible.
When asked about their commitment to providing the best service, and why it is so important to them, American Freight says “We’ve built our business on the foundations of dealing honestly with our customers, having integrity with our carriers and treating all our employees like family.” One of the driving factors behind their success, American Freight is committed to providing the best, most comprehensive and affordable services to their customers at all times. With over 71% of the United States freight now being delivered by truck, their services and commitment to excellence are invaluable.
At American Freight, they consider themselves a “trucker first” brokerage. Dave Marleau, American Freights vice president and third-generation trucker says “From driving all night long to meet a 6:00 a.m. loading or delivery appointment, to the ‘hurry up and wait’ that happens a lot at shippers and receivers, to stringent federal regulations, to the stress of being away from family for days or weeks at a time, drivers make a lot of sacrifices to make sure the products we buy every day are always on the local shelves.” One of the company’s core values is to value people – and that extends not only to customers, but to their employees. In 2019 the company projects they will pay out about $15 million to their workers – up a whopping $5 million from 2017 alone.
American Freight Incorporated is looking forward to continuing to deliver excellence to their customers and employees for many years to come. Their unprecedented experience, and commitment to excellence in the heavy hauling company has helped them solidify their spot in the expansive trucking field.
