Every day, I go to a job I love where I am surrounded by family and friends, Don Freymiller. Few industries can rival the reach, power, and scope of the American trucking industry. Virtually every product that is grown or manufactured finds its way to the market on a tractor trailer at some point. Yet few books have been written that tell an insider's view of this business. Freymiller: Building the Truckers' Trucking Company details how one family built a trucking company from the ground up. Its annual revenues exceed $100,000,000. Don Freymiller learned the value of hard work on his parents dairy farm in southern Wisconsin. He wanted more out of life than scraping by milking cows, and he eventually found himself driving a cattle truck. That ignited a passion in Don, and he soon bought a single truck and started his own trucking company. Within a few years, Freymiller Trucking was hauling goods across the United States. As the business grew and became a publicly traded company, Don became friends with superstars in the worlds of music and auto racing. Freymiller: Building the Truckers' Trucking Company is the true story of the family, friends, customers, vendors, and great employees who built one of the most respected and well known trucking companies in the country. It's an inspiring story of hard work and overcoming obstacles. It's also a detailed insider's account of one of the most important industries in the nation, the world of trucking. Don is uniquely qualified to write this book because he has spent his entire life driving trucks, dealing with vendors, and serving the trucking industry. His trucking career has taken him around the world, and in the course of serving on some of the largest trucking associations in the world he rubbed elbows with former President George H.W. Bush, members of congress, other politicians, NASCAR drivers, famous country singers, TV & movie actors, and more. The book will teach you how cucumbers get from the field to the produce aisle and why you should respect the great man and women who spend their lives driving trucks across our nation's highways. This book was written for two reasons: Tell the Freymiller story and thank all the people who helped build our company. I owe the most gratitude to all the drivers who have worked for us. Each truck represents a hard-working man or woman who is on the road to make sure that when you go to the store to buy food or clothes the shelves are stocked. Second, so you will learn the importance of truck drivers.
