Marten Transport, Ltd
Marten Transport, Ltd strives to be the foremost provider of time and temperature-sensitive and dry transportation and distribution services to customers in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Roger Marten founded Marten Transport, Ltd. in 1946 at the age of 17, delivering milk and other dairy products. His routes at that time were primarily in the Modena, Wisconsin area where Roger was born and raised. Driving for the Modena Co-op Creamery, Roger purchased his first truck route with a $400 loan from his mother. In the 1950’s he expanded his milk delivery routes, purchased and drove school buses, and hauled petroleum products with his first tractor-trailer. In 1993 Marten suffered a tragic loss when Roger passed away. There are still many driving, office, and terminal employees working at Marten who were hired by Roger. Shortly after his passing, the Roger Marten Community Center was built in Mondovi, WI. The facility was dedicated to his memory in 1996.
We have strategically transitioned from a long-haul carrier to a multifaceted business offering a network of truck-based transportation capabilities across our five distinct business platforms—Truckload, Dedicated, Intermodal, Brokerage and MRTN de México. We will accomplish our mission by exceeding the expectations of our customers, employees, stockholders and society.
We serve customers with demanding delivery deadlines, as well as those who ship products requiring modern temperature-controlled trailers to protect goods. Our dry freight services are expanding, with 1,650 dry vans operating as of December 31, 2019.
Founded in 1946, we have been a public company since 1986. Our common stock trades on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol MRTN.
At December 31, 2019, we employed 4,087 people, including drivers, office personnel and mechanics.
400 MILLION-MILE DRIVERS
More than 400 Marten drivers have achieved a million accident-free miles in the past decade. But what’s even more amazing is that our drivers are so loyal we’ve had to add a 4 million miler club to our 1, 2, and 3 million mile clubs.
SO MANY DRIVERS GO THE DISTANCE WITH US – WE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.
“TREAT EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS WITH THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE, AND SUCCESS WILL COME NATURALLY.”, – RANDY MARTEN
