50+ YEARS IN TRUCKING.
ABOUT MODULAR TRANSPORTATION
A FLATBED TRUCKING COMPANY WITH SOLID STABILITY & GROWTH.
Modular Transportation was founded in 1969 and shows no signs of stopping.
From humble beginnings with a single truck, Robert Stouten created a flatbed trucking company that has stood the test of time.
A family-first approach to trucking has not only kept the company rolling under the same name, by the same family, but extends much further to focus on the overall health and happiness of all of our employees.
Industry-leading driver retention speaks for itself! Dozens of drivers and office staff have been here for decades because of our commitment to the success of everyone here. And we’ve never laid off a driver!
No stop signs on the horizon to keep us trucking safely all over the Midwest and beyond for years to come.
We were recently featured in the Grand Rapids Business Journal! Read the article.
With a one borrowed flatbed truck, Robert Stouten began the the journey to his legacy with Modular Transportation.
After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II and the Korean War, Robert began a sales career with George F. Alger Company, as part of their large van division in Detroit, MI. He was able to help them turn a profit within 30 days, after months of losing money.
In 1962, Robert moved to Grand Rapids and started his own flatbed trucking company, G&B Transportation. With only five drivers, they thrived during the “glory days” of the trucking industry.
In 1969, Robert started a new company with the purpose of hauling modular homes. Modular Transportation was born.
After their primary customer went bankrupt, Robert decided to go in a different direction, building on relationships he had with local steel manufacturers.
Modular Transportation has since grown to over 200 drivers and four terminals in Grand Rapids, MI, Granite City, IL, Columbus, MS and West Memphis, Arkansas.
