Andra Rush founded Rush Trucking Corporation in 1984 to serve the competitive automotive logistics industry. As a woman- and Native American-owned transportation solutions provider, Rush Trucking was sure to attract attention. However, the driving force behind Rush Trucking’s three decades of success is Andra’s commitment to customer service, safety, and to treating her staff like family. A culture of service and appreciation has generated loyal employees, long-term customers, and significant growth—from just three trucks and one location in 1984 to multiple hubs and an ever-growing fleet in 2018.
What has guided Rush over the years is fundamentally a focus on people. We know happy employees lead to happy customers. That putting “Safety First is Safety Always” into practice sends the message that we are all valuable, from our driver personnel to the people they share the road with. And that good customer service means delivering on your promises and treating others the way you want to be treated. At Rush, thanks to our dedicated and inspired staff, we always deliver.
