History and Vision of CTS

When CTS began in 1985 as a single-truck operation doing cartage work for paper mills in the Green Bay area, it was impossible to know what a leader the company would become in Midwest regional transportation services. But here we are 30 years later with a fleet of over 150 trucks, providing exceptional, predictable transportation and logistics solutions in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa and Michigan.

Our vision – to recognize people who do the right thing so they know their impact on the success of the company – is what sets us apart and makes us stand out as a leader in the trucking industry. Our employees are continually acknowledged for doing their jobs well. From the top down, we do what we say we’re going to do, when we say we’re going to do it.  We take a no-frills approach to finding solutions and overcoming obstacles, and exceptional service is our number one priority.  We strive for mutual respect between management and driving professionals, and our employees pass that same level of professionalism on to the customer.

We are dedicated to being an employer of choice for CDL truck drivers in the Appleton, Green Bay, Milwaukee, and Wausau areas.  Our truck driving professionals are held to high standards, and that means our customers can count on extraordinary service each and every time. We set out to continually exceed expectations, and that’s what we do. We’re CTS Strong.

Green Trucking Initiatives

We guarantee our customers that their products will be delivered safely, economically, and always on time.  When you choose CTS for your transportation needs, you’re committing to a company that places a high importance on the environment.  We’ve partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency as a SmartWay affiliate to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, curb air pollution, and improve fuel efficiency for sustainability.  We’re proud that 50 percent of our fleet runs on compressed natural gas (CNG), which reduces customer costs and has positive impacts on the environment.  By 2018, 100 percent of CTS tractors will run on CNG.

ELD Mandate

We are a forward-thinking logistics company on the edge of innovation. Although the December 2017 ELD Mandate will affect many, CTS will maintain a strong stance of preparedness, since we are 100% ELD equipped and have been for years. With the coming of this change, many companies will run into problems sustaining their businesses. CTS will not. We have been awarded some major new business with new customers because we are already ELD outfitted. We have a large trailer pool with a 7.2:1 trailer to tractor ratio, which is the key to helping our drivers get the maximum they can get with ELD’s. This leads to more drop and hook business both at the shipper and consignee which means more time driving miles. Click the banner below to learn more.
