Our History

Family Values Drive Our Company

A family owned and operated company based out of Perham, Minnesota, Papenfuss Trucking was founded in 2011 with a single truck and the vision of providing quality, personalized service and on time deliveries. Through hard work and the kind of leadership that builds substantial relationships throughout the industry, our business grew. Today Papenfuss Trucking has grown to a fleet of over 20 trucks, specializing in flatbed and step deck freight of all kinds, yet ours remains a family style model of operation. As we continue to do business based on those founding principles, we look forward to a bright future.

We’re So Much More Than Just Nice

Superior customer service involves more than our Minnesota Nice personalities. We hold ourselves to standards higher than our industry expects, endeavoring to treat everyone we come in contact with respectfully, and to be honest, fair, and ethical in all we do. Our clients can count on us to keep our promises, be open in our communications, and perform safe, on-time deliveries.

Adapting to Meet the Future

Because the industry is continually changing, we strive to adapt to those shifts and to innovate, yet maintain the core values that brought us this far. Our focus on quality, commitment to safety, and the care we have for the well-being of our drivers and their families is unmatched in the industry.
