One of the longest continuously operating fleets in the country, the Oregon-based regional less-than-truckload carrier Reddaway is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2019.
Founded in 1919 in Oregon City, Oregon, Reddaway was founded by William Arthur Reddaway with a single Ford Model T truck, primarily serving Portland and Oregon City. In the next 100 years, the company expanded in size to 1,500 tractors and 5,000 trailers and today is part of YRC Regional Transportation.
To celebrate its centennial, Reddaway will be hosting appreciation events in the Tualatin, Oregon office, as well as in its field offices, to recognize and thank employees. Reddaway currently employs over 2,800 people and operates more than 40 service centers.
“It’s humbling to think about the legacy of innovation, continuous improvement, exceptional reliability and the personalized support that have not only carried us through the past 100 years, but have allowed us to thrive,” said Bob Stone, president of Reddaway. “I have had the pleasure of witnessing it firsthand for the past 25 years. I’m honored to work alongside the dedicated people who make Reddaway a company that our customers enjoy doing business with. It’s this culture and our people who help us continue to thrive into the next century.”
