Tennant Truck Lines, Inc. (TTL) is a truckload dry van carrier with a long history of providing solutions to happy customers. It all started in 1946 when Sidney Tennant purchased his first truck and trailer. He hauled hogs on a milk run from the Quad Cities to Chicago, Illinois and back. With the support of his family, Sidney’s vision quickly grew into a thriving business. In 1968, Tennant Truck Lines began offering flatbed trucking services to customers in the agriculture and heavy machinery industries. As the industries in the Midwest began to diversify, TTL recognized the opportunity for growth. We enhanced our fleet with dry van trailers to continue being a strategic partner for our loyal customers.

Through the years, we have constantly evolved to meet the challenges of the transportation and logistics industry. We’ve expanded our network and shifted our focus to truckload dry van services. TTL continues to be a family owned company. We are big enough to provide multiple solutions and still small enough to give you individualized attention.

For over 70 years, we have been on the road providing solutions to customers in diverse industries. We’ve picked up a lot along the way and our experience shows when we deliver on our commitments to customers, drivers and team members.
