This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

In 1947, after returning from Navy service during World War II, Glen Barney started Barney Trucking in Salina, Utah with his old bob-tail truck hauling coal for Southern Utah Fuel Company. With the help of his three sons and four grandchildren, this family company has grown to more than 500 employees, and at 94 years old, Glen still comes to work every day.

Barney Trucking runs over 38 million miles annually and delivered more than 215,000 loads in 2017, which means they deliver a load, on average, every two and half minutes. In addition to coal, Barney Trucking hauls many types of bulk materials, aggregates, liquids, and dry hazardous chemicals each day.

Quality of life for drivers and safety are their No. 1 focus with safety technologies like drive cameras, collision avoidance, lane wander and roll stability to ensure drivers have the safest drive experience in the industry. They swept all five safety awards at this year’s Utah Trucking Association annual meeting

They have only the best trucks in their fleet, including Peterbilt and Freightliner tractors no older than three years. Vice President David Price says Barney Trucking has a dedicated customer base with long-term relationships that includes Glen’s very first customer, Valley Resources, 71 years later!
