In 1931, Decker Truck Line, Inc. was founded with one single Model B Ford truck by brothers Loren and Dale Decker. The older of the two brothers, Loren, was only 17 years old at the time. Service in the early days involved the transportation of canned goods, plumbing fixtures, gypsum products and windmills between Iowa and the adjacent states.
In 1976, Loren sold his interest in the company to Dale and Dale’s two sons, Don and Duane Decker. Building on 45 years of experience, customer loyalty, quality service and personnel, this new management team expanded the company’s operations. Decker’s revenues continued to increase and our operations extended to a nationwide system of transporting all types of commodities. In 1993, Don Decker acquired sole ownership of the company.
Now, over 75 years later, Decker still employs the philosophy that there is no substitute for quality of service. This philosophy has awarded Decker the privilege of continuing to serve some customers for more than 70 years, and continuing to earn the loyalty of new customers. Let Decker Truck Line, Inc. put our 75 plus years of experience, great customer service and over 550 units to work for you.
Because Decker is still family owned and operated, we understand the importance of family to our drivers and staff. Our operations personnel is dedicated to providing drivers consistent, quality time at home.
