West Side Transport was started in the late 1960s by the Vogt family — and is still family-run to this day. The business began salvaging grain spills at train yards using just a couple of pickups and shovels. As the company grew, the Vogt family added semi-tractors and hopper trailers to accommodate customer needs. By the late 1980s, our trucking operation had expanded into the truckload, dry van business. Throughout the company’s history, providing outstanding service to customers has always been our focus. Today, we still make every business investment decision based on the question, “What would our customers want us to do?”
West Side Transport is a company that takes the time to make sure every person feels appreciated and respected. Special events like our Annual West Side Transport Gala, Driver Appreciation parties, show how we DEMONSTRATE appreciation for our West Side Transport family. We take the time to recognize achievements with award presentations for the driver of the month, graduating students, and more. In the end, it is how we treat people that make West Side Transport the family that it truly is. We truly appreciate everything our employees do to contribute towards the success of West Side Transport.
