Leon Johnsrud

Leon, the founder of Johnsrud Transport Inc., started the company with one truck in the early 60’s. His passion has always been the people of Johnsrud and the trucking industry. A lot of things have changed since he first started the company, but professionalism and quality service will always be the core values of the company he founded. He enjoys talking with the older drivers, reminiscing about trucking years ago and the challenges they faced when air conditioning and dependable heating were a luxury.

Leon grew up in Schley, Iowa, where his father owned a cheese factory. It was during his time working there where he got his start in trucking, hauling milk to the cheese factory. Working with his father in the cheese factory taught him the importance of sanitation in the food industry and the food-grade standards that need to be met.
