    Heartland was founded by Russell Gerdin in 1978 with 4 people in the office and 16 trucks.

    It became a publicly traded company on the NASDAQ market in 1986, and ended that year posting gross revenues of $21.6 million.

    Heartland acquired Munson Transportation in 1993

    Heartland acquired A&M Express in 1997, which is successfully integrated as a profitable contributor to the overall company.

    Great Coastal Express was acquired in 2002 and contributed a solid mid-atlantic presence. The great people of Great Coastal Express were a terrific addition to the Heartland family ...................:bananapartyhat:
