Ruan Transportation

Des Moines, IA


Ruan was founded during a very challenging time. It was the Great Depression. John Ruan's father had passed away, and someone needed to provide for the family. So, despite the risk, the 18-year-old sold his family's car, bought a truck and began hauling gravel around Iowa. Ruan Transportation Management Systems was born.   

Today, more than 84 years after that first load of gravel was shoveled by hand, Chairman John Ruan III and CEO Ben McLean—part of the third generation of the Ruan family—continue to operate and lead according to the principles set down by Mr. Ruan: integrity, hard work, innovation, quality customer service and compassion. Ruan continues to research and develop innovations in technology, equipment and safety. And, we're leading the transportation industry's effort to improve its environmental profile.    

Whatever the challenge, we're committed to finding new and innovative ways to serve our customers.  

Our mission is to employ the best team in the industry to move our customers' business safely, efficiently and on time, every time.
