Dahlsten Truck Line, Inc. began operation in 1946 with one truck driven by Howard Dahlsten. By 1955, three more trucks had been added. A year later the first contract authority and five additional trucks were obtained with the purchase of K. H. Thiel Truckline. Over the years the company expanded and now operates in all 48 states, transporting an excess of 26,000 truck loads per year. Dahlsten Truck Line began as, and remains, a family owned trucking firm with all corporate stock owned by the Dahlsten family.
Dahlsten Truck Line now owns or has under lease approximately 100 power units and maintains two separate operations divisions- package and bulk- with separate operations personnel assigned to each division. Our equipment includes dry vans, reefers,and pneumatic trailers with power units that are maintained in the highest industry standards. Our tractors are equipped with state-of-the-art satellite communication that allows our operations personnel immediate contact with any driver at any time. This places Dahlsten on the cutting edge when it comes to demand services and the ability to provide our customers with real-time information on their shipment.
