Carlson keeps on trucking and expanding

Carlson Trucking keeps on expanding with the latest growth coming from the construction of a 45’ by 80’ arch style building for truck repair and more.
The company, which started in 1996 with one truck, now sends out 12 trucks on a regular basis, does welding, steel and aluminum fabrication, trailer and equipment repair and truck tire service. In addition, the company owns and operates storage locations in Humboldt, Gilmore City, Livermore and Rolfe and also offers portable storage in the form of steel storage containers.
Carlson Trucking is located on Highway 3 East in Humboldt, next to the Three Rivers Trail.
Curt Carlson started the company in 1996 and after a few years of driving on his own, he started helping other owner-operators line up work.
“They own the tractor and lease it to Carslon Trucking and operate under our authority. We provide the freight from our customers. The demand tends to always be there. And that comes from the level of service we provide due to the owner-operator model. We all have a vested interest, therefore we tend to take a more personal interest in our customers,” Curt Carlson said.
