About ACT

90 Years Old And Still Young At Heart

Just because we’ve been running the roads since 1926, don’t get the idea that we’re set in our ways. We take pride in being an innovative, forward looking company that’s constantly looking for new ways to make driving safer and more profitable for our drivers.

Welcome to the Family

We started out as a small flatbed trucking company called E. K. Motor Service, operating in Joliet, Illinois. In 1972, Tom B. Kretsinger, Sr. purchased the company and changed our name to American Central Transport, or ACT. By 1994 we converted our operation to 100% dry van truckload service. Today, we’re still a family-run company and it shows. Here you’ll enjoy an associate-friendly, business-casual environment where you’ll work alongside of the sons of our founder.
