Our Family Owned Trucking Company

Dave Koch started K & J Trucking in 1979 with the dream of becoming one of the industry’s top refrigerated carriers. Working together with his family, this dream became a reality.

At K & J Trucking, we are family, and just like you, we are loyal and devoted to our family. Our drivers and team members mean the world to us, and we are committed to investing in each family member. We value happy and healthy drivers, and we take the time to celebrate the wonderful events in our team member's and customer's lives. In fact, since we opened shop in 1979, we have never forced a driver to work on Christmas!

As a company, K & J does not believe in cutting corners. Taking the quick and easy route almost never pays off. That is why we run the finest equipment, utilize the latest technology, and take care of our team. And, customer service is still our number one priority.

A Better Way of Doing Things

Dave Koch started K & J because he believed there is a better way of doing things, and we hang on to this principle today. When asked why we do something, we strive to never have the answer be "because that is the way we have always done it."

We are always working to better our company, our team members, and the trucking industry in general. When we hear problems and suggestions from our drivers and customers, we dig deeper into the issues to find a better solution. If that means actively advocating for trucker rights and working with local and national legislators, then we will be there.

At the end of the day, we are driven by what is best for our drivers and the industry, not our pocket book.
