Millis Transfer, Inc. as we know it today originally started after prohibition with Jake and Ray Millis acquiring the Old Style Distributorship in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. Beer for the wholesale business was hauled from La Crosse, Wisconsin, as well as freight of all kinds to and from La Crosse. In 1944 Bud and Mayo Millis bought out the business from Jake and Ray.
In 1972, Millis Brothers Transfer purchased Beer Transit, Inc., of Heartland, Wisconsin. This gave Millis Brothers Transfer Common Carrier authority and additional equipment.
In 1980, Millis suffered a great loss when Bud Millis passed away, leaving Bill Millis as sole management leader. Bill continues on today as Chief Executive Officer and majority stockholder of Millis.
