Delivering "confidence and satisfaction" by providing flawless transportation services.
Everett Roehl began providing motor carrier service in 1962 with a single truck. Today, Roehl Transport is one of the 100 largest trucking companies in the nation with over 1,900 tractors and 5,200 trailers.
Roehl is consistently listed on the Transport Topics top 100 list as well as in the CCJ Top 250. We're approaching $500 million in revenue per year, and our customers include some of the most prestigious brand names in America.
What we’re really delivering is confidence – that load is one less thing our customers' need to worry about. And satisfaction – the good feeling customers have when we meet their needs and expectations.
Our Values - What’s Important.
Like the bricks and mortar of a solid building, our values provide the solid foundation that guides and supports our behaviors. When we say Safety is our “cornerstone” value, it is reflected by our philosophy of Protective Driving. Priorities constantly shift and change. As the circumstances of the moment change, so do the priorities. Getting the groceries can usually wait until Saturday unless there’s a big storm coming this weekend. Then there’s the rush to the store for milk, bread and other essentials. Could you imagine if we treated safety that way—it can wait till the weekend until something comes up to cause it to be done now? That’s no way to treat safety. It has to be important all the time.
Values are deeply held beliefs beyond compromise. Values don’t change based on the circumstances of the moment. If honesty is one of your values, you don’t lie simply because it’s convenient. Values are enduring and guide our daily behaviors. We’re so very proud that Roehl drivers choose to treat safety as a value rather than a priority. By doing so, they recognize and behave in a way that shows that safety is important all the time and not simply a matter of convenience. Because they hold safety as a value, Roehl drivers don’t drive defensively, that is, trying to defend themselves from the motoring public. No, Roehl drivers try to drive protectively—that is anticipating, recognizing and adjusting to mistakes that others may make.
We realize that most motorists don’t share our values, experience, or training, so we have a special responsibility to drive in a way that protects them— even from their own mistakes. Roehl drivers distinguish themselves because they drive to protect others—the sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, relatives and friends whom we love and cherish so deeply. We deliver “Confidence and Satisfaction” by living our values.
What makes us different.
We distinguish ourselves from other trucking companies by leaning on the principles Everett recognized early on in his career – we succeed by delivering. More than simply moving freight from point A to point B – rather, we deliver on the promise we made to the customer.

Roehl was not built to serve shareholders or banks. We’re built to serve our customers and we do that by taking care of our drivers. CEO Rick Roehl has his Class A CDL so he can do what the most important people in this company do – haul freight. That's the only way to lead a drivers' company.
