Founded in 1931 by William W. Ward as a “one-truck, two man” operation, Ward was the first to offer Central Pennsylvania farmers access to the New York City market, where produce was in great demand. Ward hauled produce through the streets of Manhattan in exchange for cases of oil to take back to his rural suppliers. William Ward’s relentless commitment to his customers was the impetus of the type of Obsessive Customer Service that our customer’s experience today.
Today we work alongside a team of over 1,300 of the finest and most hard working professionals in the industry. Our network of 22 service centers gives us the opportunity to provide reliable next day service to over 15,000 loyal customers, and our strong partnerships with other like-minded carriers allows us to extend our supply chain offering to other regions of the US without having to sacrifice on quality.
