In February of 1990, that foundation turned into an official trucking company when the first loads were pulled out of the Green Bay, WI area. Very quickly, PTI earned a solid reputation with their “get it done for the customer” attitude since it wasn’t unusual to see one of the founders, Lennie or Roger, jumping in a truck to deliver a load on time if a customer was in a pinch.
From 1990 to 2001, PTI became a niche service provider for one of America’s largest shippers. It was also during this time that the company expanded its fleet from just 3 original trucks to over 100, servicing customers 99% on-time to the minute. The individual attention they paid to their customers, along with a knack for innovation, further set PTI apart from their competitors and led to additional growth from 2002 to 2009. In those seven years, the company added another 140 trucks to the fleet and opened up service to Muskogee, OK; Huber Heights, OH; Jacksonville, FL; and Pontoon Beach, IL.
Since 2009. Paper Transport has rallied around a strategy of growth and innovation in order to aggressively diversify through additional customers product lines. The company has grown from 240 trucks and 800 trailers in 2009 to over 875 trucks and 3,000 trailers today.
