Whatever happened to the open road, the outlaw trucker? Has he disappeared as surely as his predecessor, the Western cowboy? Is the modern trucker really just sitting behind a desk – albeit a desk that moves – as tethered to the office electronically as if he were in it?

Muskoka Transport Ltd. says its history dates back to the 1880s, when an orphan named Alfred Hammond emigrated from England to Bracebridge, Ontario. “From this central town of Muskoka District, located on the 45th parallel of latitude, the story of the Hammond family follows the spread of passenger and freight transportation throughout Ontario, across North America and around the world,” the company says.

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has come a long way since its inception in 1975, when Cuyahoga County residents voted to consolidate their 13 private municipal transit systems. In March 2007, the Federal Transit Administration recognized the RTA for its success in enhancing ridership, and in June, the RTA won the Lexus “World Class Customer Service Award.”

Nalley Motor Trucks has maintained the experienced personnel that makes it an industry expert in the third-largest trucking market in the United States.

“We have great employees and great managers that really understand the market,” General Manager Bill Bilbo says.

“Ed Banning laid out the foundation for a company that believed in and is empowered by its people,” Billy Banning says.

“That is the main reason why we are here today. People have always been our most valuable asset.”

With a legacy stretching back to the 1950s, E. Gruben’s Transport has found success by staying diversified and flexible in its services, CEO Russell Newmark says. “It seems that, every year, there’s a new, different set of projects,”

he says.
