A in Dedicated Transportation

When you partner with STS Transportation Services, you can focus on other aspects of your business while we handle supply chain transportation and yard management.

Our History

Based in West Branch, IA, STS Transportation Services was founded in 1999. Back then, our company only had a total of 6 drivers, 3 trucks, and 12 trailers and has now grown to one of the premier dedicated carriers with over 90 drivers, 40 trucks, and 500 trailers.

For more than 20 years, we have worked almost exclusively with Fortune 100 companies. As a result, we have adopted their best practices and methods in our own business and are able to deploy that knowledge into any operation. 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 dedicated services, we minimize our clients’ traditional constraints and allow them to shift their attention towards fulfilling orders. 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.
