Marten Transport, Ltd. celebrates 70 years of evolution, growth and stability! 1946-2016

In 2016 we begin a new chapter in the history of Marten Transport. Seventy years ago, Roger Marten started the company with a loan from his mother to purchase his first truck. Today, the company boasts an international presence in North America with 15 operation centers and over 3,670 employees and contractors.


• We've been able to sustain this growth and stability by evolving our operations and services. Over the past 10 years, we've become a multi-faceted provider of transportation services offering OTR, Regional, Intermodal, and Dedicated temperature-controlled truckload services along with service to/from Mexico via MRTN de Mexico and brokerage solutions for our customers.


• Marten Transport has led the industry in paying our drivers for time when the truck wheels are not rolling. We have automatic detention pay, tractor and trailer maintenance downtime pay and inclement weather downtime pay. We continue to focus on building the jobs drivers want by increasing dedicated runs, adding power lanes, and working to improve job satisfaction and home time options.


• Marten Transport has paid for all our terminals and equipment as we've grown.


The year ahead offers great opportunities for continued growth and expansion of Marten Transport. Our new dry van division kicks off operations in our Edwardsville, Kansas terminal and we also continue to expand our Dedicated operations. We are excited for the future.
