The company was established by Chester Rodney England who came from a farming family in England. He settled and had a family in Plain City, Utah and there started trucking services through his Model T truck which transported farm produce to the local market. When his two sons, have grown, they accompanied him in longer distance deliveries involving bananas and potatoes from Mexico and Utah. From here they were able to acquire a diesel truck and a mechanical refrigeration unit.
The company is also known to be the first to provide a coast to coast trucking service which only lasted for 72 hours. In 1957, Robert Gould who was employed as a truck driver in the company made the trip from California to Philadelphia carrying fresh produce. There came a huge demand for the service which made the company to establish a branch in Philadelphia. Today, they are now operating a variety of terminals from Salt Lake City, California, New Jersey, Indiana, and Texas.
The company highly values professionalism and safety in their truck drivers, as well as on meeting the demands of their customers. They aim at providing an efficient and on-time delivery to their customers which is also safe and secure for their drivers.
