Our founders grew up in trucking...literally. They started out working during the summers at 12 years old in maintenance, dock work, and office tasks for their family truck line, Trans-Western Express. While running the fleet as adults, they worked to convert their 350 drivers to become owner-operators. It was during this time that they saw a need to help great drivers become great business owners, and there were few, if any, resources available to these drivers.
When they sold their trucking business during the late 90’s, they took their passion for owner-operators and started American Truck Business Services, now known as ATBS. It started simple...in the back of a garage, helping drivers with their taxes.
