Successful Dealer, a sister publication of CCJ, will name its 2015 Successful Dealer Award recipient Wednesday at the conclusion of the first day of CV Outlook in Dallas, Texas.

The finalists this year are River States Truck and Trailer, Freightliner of St. Cloud and Doggett Freightliner of South Texas.

Founded in 1972 in La Crosse, Wis., by Bob Frise, River States Truck and Trailer has become the premier truck and trailer dealer and service center in Western Wisconsin. And it’s still a family business, currently headed by Joe Laux.

Converse, Texas-based Doggett Freightliner of South Texas may only have two rooftops in its network, but the company hustles to make the most of its impact on its community and employees.

Freightliner of St. Cloud, founded in 1963, is the largest supplier to the transportation industry in Central Minnesota and the oldest continually-owned truck dealer in the area.

The Successful Dealer Award seeks to recognize a dealership/dealership group for exceptional sales and service performance and excellence in community and civic engagement.
