Our History

since 1956

vedder transport truck
Founded in 1956 by four gentlemen who pooled $400 together and invested in an opportunity. They purchased one truck and proceeded to haul food goods from a local cannery to the processing plants. Decades later, three generations of their family are still intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of Vedder and are committed to serving as a liquid and dry bulk distribution partner to the world's leading food and animal nutrition product manufacturers.
The story has developed along with the company. In 1985, Can Am West was incorporated to move truckload and less than truckload general freight throughout North America, utilizing vans and flat decks.
