In 1984, Ray “Ole” Olson and wife Barb started BarOle Trucking with one truck and a vision to provide reliable, on-time service in the Intermodal Industry. Years of hard work and dedication have built the foundation of our success. Our modern fleet now exceeds 70 units and 30 employees. One of our founding drivers of BarOle Trucking was Barb and Ole’s son Ray, who took over the reins in 1996, carrying on Ole’s legacy and vision.
Though our start was modest, the work ethic that founded BarOle Trucking is the heart of our business. BarOle Trucking has matured into the largest Intermodal-Carrier in the Twin Cities Metro Area servicing Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Michigan and Illinois.
Each employee remains committed to carrying on Ole's vision to deliver superior-quality transportation service with integrity. Our employees are highly trained, with years of experience in the Intermodal Industry. We are committed to provide our customers with professional, on-time delivery service with a personal touch. Our staff is dedicated to making sure that your load is handled swiftly and professionally.
With the advent of modern day technology, BarOle Trucking utilizes cutting-edge technology to serve our customers’ communication needs with the click of a mouse. Our use of ActiveTrac® and state-of-the-art dispatch-tracking software provides our customers the awareness and event reporting which exceeds the standards in our industry by reporting events in real time.
In more ways than one, BarOle Trucking is “Transporting You to a Better Tomorrow!”
