About Us


In 1934, in the midst of the Great Depression, Rudy Buchheit started hauling livestock to market for local farmers. No superhighways, no GPS units – just Rudy, his truck, and his determination to feed his family.

To make the most of each trip, Rudy began hauling goods back on his return trip. Turned out folks back home had a hard time laying hands on such merchandise. So Rudy’s efforts were an immediate hit, and Buchheit Trucking was born.

Several million miles later, Buchheit has become the #1 independent logistics corporation in the region with a network connecting continents around the globe.

The Buchheit name is also known as a trustworthy source for agricultural supplies. Buchheit retail stores offer a wide variety of home and farm products across the Midwest.

Yet in spite of our success, we’ve never forgotten the simple principles that drove Rudy back in 1934: get it there on time, get it there in good condition, and get it there for a fair price.

We call it “Rudy’s way.” And no matter how much farther down the road we go, we’ll never lose sight of it.


At Buchheit, we understand you have a choice when it comes to your logistics partner. And we understand just how much you have riding on your decision. That’s why we make this promise to you: Each and every day we commit to your success. From the first mile to the last, we will stand with you to ensure that your products are cared for and delivered to their intended destination on time, as promised. And, if for any reason you are ever dissatisfied, we will spare no effort to make it right.

Thanks for allowing us to serve you.

Buchheit Logistics Team
