From Humble Beginnings...

Van Eerden Trucking Co, based in Byron Center, Michigan, was founded in 1980. The grandsons of the founder of Van Eerden Distribution Company, a 95-year-old full-service food distributor, created Van Eerden Trucking to provide backhaul services.

In the early days, the company operated primarily as a small owner-operator fleet until, 1987 when Van Eerden transitioned into company owned and operated equipment. While we have experienced continous growth, we have maintained partnerships with the same customers since day one.

Much of our success can be attributed to the preservation to our core principles of providing the highest quality transportation services.
