Gardner Trucking, Inc.

Gardner Trucking, Inc. company logo

Gardner Trucking was established in 1974 by Ron Gardner. The company was acquired in 1987 by President Ron Lanting.

After he purchased the California corporation, Mr. Lanting shaped it as a catalyst to grow his then-owned Lanting Hay business into something much more than just a hay hauling business. Now, Gardner Trucking boasts more than 1,500 tractor trucks and over 4,000 trailers with services including refrigerated, drayage, dedicated, and flat-bed hauling to go along with its dry-van hauling of its most common commodity - corrugated products.
