Our History

Based in West Branch, IA, STS Transportation Services was founded in 1999. Back then, our company had a total of 6 drivers, 3 tractors, and 12 trailers. Even though our business started out small, we worked hard to give our clients the best possible service and deliver results.

Our minority-owned carrier has grown exponentially. For more than 20 years, we have worked almost exclusively with Fortune 500 companies. Now, we also serve many businesses on the Fortune 100 list. As a result, we have adopted their best practices and methods. When it comes to commitment to safety and dedication to quality service, we are head and shoulders above our peers.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to deliver quality work safely and securely. We strive to provide outstanding service and value to our clients so that they can focus on what they do best—growing their business.

Through our 3PL services, we minimize our clients’ traditional constraints and allow them to shift their attention toward delivering their products in one piece. We want to help our partners concentrate on what they are good at and not get bogged down by the logistics of how to execute their vision.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to become the #1 minority-owned transportation 3PL in the Procter & Gamble (P&G) network.
