TACOMA, Wash. — Interstate Distributor Co. on Monday will begin a weeklong celebration of the carrier’s 80th anniversary.

Interstate began operations in 1933 when Bob McLean owned one truck and hauled cedar shakes from Washington to California.

Interstate President and CEO Marc Rogers will kick off the celebration Monday.

“We are proud of our 80-years in business and of the talented associates, commitment to customer service and ability to change that got us here,” Rogers said.  “Our future is bright; we have a strong leadership team in place to expand our service footprint and ensure we are building the best trucking company in America through our foundational principles of safety first, service always and a passion for operational excellence.”  During the events Interstate will reveal its new brand, new equipment and roll out its inaugural Driver Ambassador Program.

The celebration begins Monday at the carrier’s Lebanon, Tenn., terminal at 8100 Eastgate Boulevard, continues Tuesday at the Fontana, Calif., terminal at 11128 Hemlock Avenue, and ends Thursday at the carriers headquarters at 11707 21st Avenue Court South in Tacoma.

Interstate currently employs more than 1,800 associates.
