Honoring our past.
Moving toward the future.

Howard and Annette Kruepke purchased their first truck in 1946 and contracted with the local cannery to transport vegetables from the farm field to the processing plant. Over the next several years they added additional trucks and hauled for several canneries.

In the early 1950s, in an effort to diversify and to find more year-round work, the Kruepke family purchased a farm milk pickup route with Golden Guernsey Dairy. From those modest beginnings, generation after generation of Kruepkes have taken the family mantle and continued our tradition of excellent customer service and building the company by recruiting hard-working, responsible drivers and maintaining an updated, reliable fleet.

Today, Kruepke Trucking currently operates a fleet of around 40 tractors and 100 dry van trailers. From our home base in Jackson, WI, we service our customers’ needs over a 26 state area. Our diverse customer base means that we haul a variety of items from carpet and bathroom fixtures to printed material and non-perishable foods.

Kruepke Transit consists of a fleet of dump trucks used for aggregate transportation.
