Ruan Transportation Management Systems has never stopped innovating, which is fitting for one of America’s most storied trucking companies.
John Ruan started the company in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1932 with one truck. Today, it is an asset-based 3PL with a diverse offering of services, over 300 locations nationwide and a fleet that travels 350 million miles a year.
As the company continues to evolve, Ruan recognizes the importance of environmental sustainability to the trucking industry’s future.
“Ruan wants to help reduce emissions,” says Steve Larsen, the company’s Director of Procurement and Fuel. “We are also very customer-focused, and a lot of our customers have sustainability goals, and we want to support them by being a cleaner supplier.”
