The Roadway Story
by Philip L. Cantelon and Kenneth D. Durr
For those of you who love business and love reading about business history, here is our latest book of the month.
After World War II, the motor carrier industry, led by Roadway Express of Akron, Ohio, revolutionized the way Americans shipped freight as railroad transport yielded to intercity trucking. This book shows how Roadway, established in 1930, pioneered new advances in tractor-trailer equipment that helped make the company the largest and most efficient less-than-truckload carrier in the industry. The Roadway Story also examines the changes in inner-city and motor freight transport since the industry's deregulation in 1980.
