In the world of trucking 100 years ago

Executive Editor Jack Roberts recently went through the archival stacks to see what trucking — and CCJ magazine — looked like 100 years ago.

As you’ll see from these images, taken from 1914 issues of Commercial Car Journal — as CCJ was then known — trucking was still much in its infancy, struggling to establish itself as a viable business model and sort out a whole host of technological issues and choices.

This early CCJ cover, from April, 1914, features an ad from Packard Motor Trucks — a common practice at the time.
