Decker Truck Line recently celebrated a milestone for its new western expansion by recognizing Decker West staff members who were instrumental in helping the company meet and exceed its 100-truck goal. In just over one year of operation, the newly formed Decker West went from a single truck driver to its current status of employing 120 truck drivers and 13 staff members based out of Missoula, Mont.

“We chose our Missoula location because the area boasts such an abundance of quality personnel who have a heritage of transportation experience,” says Lonnie Wallace, general manager of reefer operations for Fort Dodge, Iowa-based Decker. “We’re thrilled at what they’ve been able to accomplish in such a short time, especially considering that the division has continued to grow despite the tough economic environment.”
