Owner and CEO
General Transportation’s founder, Roger Decker, got into logistics and transportation in the late 70’s. After federal deregulation of the trucking industry in the early 80’s, Roger bought his own truck and started running cross country to earn a living and better learn this industry from the driver’s seat. No better place to do it.
After a few years of pressure from his wife Margaret, Roger sold the truck and traded it in for a phone, yellow legal pads, a mess table, and a metal folding chair. General Transportation’s doors opened on Jan 2, 1990. Having driven a truck for years, General’s basic core values would center around complete honesty, taking care of the trucker, and providing shippers/customers with unparalleled service centered around communication and simply doing what we say we will do.
General Transportation has been and will continue to be a family run business and Roger would be the first to admit this never would have happened without the support and hard work from his wife and children. From day one, he wanted this to be a place that all employees could thrive if they were willing to work hard.
