The Buchheit Story

In 1934, in the midst of the Great Depression, Rudy Buchheit started hauling livestock to market for local farmers. There were no superhighways, no GPS units – just Rudy, his truck and his commitment to feed his family. To make the most of each trip, Rudy began hauling goods back on his return trip. It turned out that community members back home had a hard time laying hands on such merchandise. So, Rudy’s efforts were an immediate hit, and Buchheit Logistics was born. Millions of miles later, Buchheit has become one of the most trusted and recognized, 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 retails stores offer a wide variety of home and farm products across the Midwest. Yet, even with our success, we haven’t 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.

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