“I often say that I’m proud to represent a diverse industry like trucking, and adding an outstanding fleet like Rush Trucking to that is wonderful,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “The future is shaped by those who show up and I’m pleased that Rush Trucking has decided to show up and stand with the ATA.”
Founded in 1984, Rush is owned by chairman and CEO Andra Rush, a Mohawk Native American. Wayne, MI-based Rush started the company with a $5,000 loan from her parents and credit cards, growing it from one van and two pickup trucks to the 850-truck international fleet it is today.
“I’m proud to represent a new voice as the first minority-owned freight transportation company on ATA’s board,” said Greg Humes, president of Rush Trucking. “Nothing in this country arrives anywhere without a truck. I’m looking forward to supporting policies and programs that protect and sustain the trucking industry, which drives our economy, and help build a pipeline of talented drivers from diverse backgrounds.”
