Sully Transport, Inc. is a family owned trucking company specializing in the transportation of hazardous bulk liquids.
Today Sully Transport operates in 48 states and Canada with over 300 cargo tanks and 170 drivers hauling hazardous bulk liquids such as: Propane, Anhydrous Ammonia, Motor Fuels, Jet Fuel, Av Gas, Herbicides, Chemicals, Liquid Fertilizer and Road Oil.
The current operations of Sully Transport are a far cry from its humble beginnings when Walt Vander Leest purchased a 1929 Chevy with a cream rack on the back. He set out to build a route to pick up cream cans from farmers and deliver to the local coop where butter was made from the cream.
In 1959, Walt purchased Sully Transport and his fleet equipment consisted of a single axle tractor and a hired driver. The year 1961 brought the purchase of a new single axle tractor, a second gas trailer and his first propane bottle. In 1964 more changes came as Arland and Duane became partners with their father. The business expanded in a short amount of time, and they moved off the road and into the operations of the organization which included hauling more commodities.
As time passed other family members joined the business. In 1972, Walt’s youngest son Warren came to work with his father and brothers. Warren started out driving and then moved into the office to oversee the gasoline and fuel operations. Arland’s son Brent, began driving for the family business in 1975 and today holds the role of Safety and Maintenance Director. Duane’s son Troy, joined his father, uncles, and cousin at Sully Transport in 1993. Troy now holds the role of Vice President of Operations.
While the company looks much different than when Walt started the operation in 1934, the values on which he built the company remain the foundation of the company today. Honesty, hard work and taking pride in a job well done are still the core values that will be found at Sully Transport today.
