About us: Wilson Logistics is a family-owned and operated company. In 1980, owner and founder Darrel Wilson purchased his first truck because he desired to hop in a truck and go trucking on the highway, but at the age of 20 he was not able to drive on his own, so he hired a driver and figured whenever he turned 21, he’d hop in the truck and take off. By the time he hit the legal driving age, Wilson owned three trucks, and now Wilson Logistics has grown to 1,000 trucks across multiple states: Missouri, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
