About our Business. Our history.

H. E. Rudy Trucking Ltd was founded in 1999 by Ed Rudy with 2 trucks and a trailer, hauling grain in NW OH and SE MI. In 2001, H.E. Rudy Trucking was the only dedicated carrier to haul Hummer roofs for this government issued vehicle. A few years later, with attention to detail and unwavering service standards H.E. Rudy entered into the automotive market with the purchase of 10 dry van trailers and has been hauling ever since. In 2005 our new shop and maintenance facility was constructed. By 2009, the company had expanded to over 15 company trucks and owner operators. Entering our 20th year in business, we are up to over 25 company trucks and 50 trailers.

Drivers Wanted! Join our Team.

H.E. Rudy Trucking, Ltd is proud of our small company atmosphere where you are known by your name and not a number. We are currently hiring drivers that would like dedicated freight and to be home every other day, if not daily. All of our freight originates in NW OH and goes to our customers in OH, MI, IN, WI and NC with loads right back to NW OH again. We have regional and short haul runs with excellent pay, benefits, and plenty of home time.

Scott Warner. Truck Driver.

I've been with H.E. Rudy Trucking since October 2005. I've seen a lot of changes through the years, all positive. Our maintenance department is full of knowledgeable individuals. They keep up on repairs and if they don't know the answer, they will get back with you as soon as they can. The office personel are only a phone call away, you can talk to them about anything! All you have to do is ask for help. You are not just a truck number here at H.E. Rudy Trucking, they treat you great and with respect.

Lonnie Musgrave. Truck Driver.

I have just completed my second year working for H. E. Rudy. I would like to begin by saying, after 32 years of employment in this industry; I have never been more pleased with an employer or the job I have held! Working for Ed, Nicki, and Jason has been an absolute delight. “Rudy” has so much to offer, and the joys of employment enjoyed here are rarely found. There truly is a family unity here among us and that camaraderie begins right at the top. Nicki, Ed, and Jason, are so willing to work with their drivers on meeting our needs, many times I feel it extends into our wants. To say, “H.E. Rudy is a great company to work for”, in no way does justice for this small enough to know your name and family company, but just large enough to have the industry benefits most drivers feel important.
