Some Preston Trucking Co.: Preston Trucking got its start in 1932, when Albert W. Sisk and Sons, a canned goods wholesaler based in Preston, Maryland, experienced difficulty using rail transport to ship small quantities of its products. One of the firm’s accountants, A. T. Blades, suggested that the company create its own transportation division. Blades then received a $500 loan from his employer and was put in charge of the fledgling enterprise.
Incorporating Preston Trucking Co. in August of 1932, Blades set out to build a trucking service that would haul small, irregular loads, or ‘less than truckload lots,’ abbreviated in the industry as LTL. He embarked on this task within a newly regulated business environment: the federal government had responded to the economic breakdown of the Great Depression by imposing order on certain key industries. Truckers were restricted to working the routes allotted to them by the government through a certificate system, and rates were fixed.
In 1936 the country remained locked in the Depression, and Preston Trucking revenues had not yet reached six figures. Nevertheless, the company set up its own offices. Around this time Preston Trucking also acquired its motto, ‘The 151 Line,’ when employees counted the company vehicles to come up with the slogan ‘151 pieces of equipment to serve you.’ By 1942 things were looking up, and Preston paid the first cash dividend on its stock.
