Marten Trans General Information

Roger Marten founded Marten Transport in 1946 at the age of 17, delivering milk and other dairy products. His routes were primarily in the Modena, Wisconsin area where he was born and raised. Driving for the Modena Co-op Creamery, Roger purchased his first truck route with a $400 loan from his mother.

Having experienced some regional success in the early 1960s, Roger began to develop his interstate carrier business. Marten opened its Ontario, California terminal in 1985 to better serve customers on the West Coast.

In 1996, Marten reached three historical milestones; it opened the Roger Marten Community Center in Mondovi, celebrated 50 years in business, and 10 years as a publicly traded company. The company has twice been named one of the 200 best small businesses in America by Forbes magazine (’05 and ’06).

With terminals in Wisconsin, Georgia, California, Oregon, Texas, Virginia and Indiana, Marten serves customers across 48 states and Canada. Today, the company that started out as one young man’s dream, employs more than 2,400 people as it carries on its founder’s philosophy of “Expecting the Best.”
