    Great read. It's amazing how the government sets up rules and then changed them at will. This company played by the rules of the day. Expanded and employed many people only to have it pulled out from under them.

    Today I received a valuable collection of Branch Industries annual reports covering the years 1970 to 1983. Branch Industries was the publicly-owned parent company of Branch Motor Express. These annual reports are on loan from Northwestern University Library Transportation Collection. I first found out about these annual reports in late July and it has taken up to now to make their way to me. I can keep them until late Nivember and must return them to the University library. It looks like there will be additional chapters to my blog at www.lessthantruckloadhistory.wordpress.com

    Part One of the history of Branch has been rewritten with newly acquired information from the 1920s and 1930s! Check it out at www.lessthantruckloadhistory.wordpress.com and also look at some of the other former trucking companies mentioned.
