Swift Transportation began operations in 1966 transporting imported steel through the ports of Los Angeles to Arizona and Arizona cotton for export back through to Southern California.
Jerry Moyes started the original operation under the name of Common Market. Operating authority was purchased from a descendant of the Swift Meat Packing family, hence, today's name of Swift Transportation. Jerry, with his father, brother and a partner, grew the business, with typical start up challenges, to a $25 million annual revenue in 1984.
With the passing of Jerry's father, Carl Moyes, Jerry became the sole owner. By 1990, Swift had grown to a $125 million carrier with 800 trucks. Swift's significant revenue growth is attributable to internal growth with existing customers as well as acquisitions. Since 1988, Swift has acquired 13 different motor carriers. Today, Swift generates over $4 billion in revenue and operates nearly 18,000 trucks.
Swift's terminal network has grown to over forty full service facilities in both the continental United States and Mexico. Swift owns 100% of Trans-Mex, a Nuevo Laredo, Mexico based carrier. Swift offers border crossing services at all major Mexican border crossings. Swift maintains a presence in every Canadian province each day. Swift is unquestionably the largest full-truckload motor carrier in North America.
