History

John J. Jerue began his career in the transportation industry as an owner operator when he was only a teenager. For nearly fifteen years, John hauled loads between Florida and the Midwest, only stopping to serve in the armed forces. In 1957, he entered the truck brokerage business. Under his vision and leadership, Jerue flourished into a nationwide provider of logistic services and solutions. Today, Jerue continues to meet the needs of customers its by overcoming the demands of the trucking industry.

Mr. Jerue has always believed that his company should reflect his own personal principles of honesty and integrity. He felt so strongly in the principle “my word is my bond” that he modeled his business after it. This and similar principles have allowed Jerue to build trusted relationships with nationwide companies and have a reputation for reliability and fairness.
