Carbon Express Inc. owner Steve Rush started his career loading trucks in a union shop and eventually, he became a full time company driver. In 1971, Steve purchased a 1970 cab over Brockway and began life as an owner operator. In 1983, Steve purchased his operating authority and started his company — Carbon Express.
Steve goes above and beyond when it comes to taking care of his drivers. In 2013, the company sold all of their Mack trucks and invested in Volvo trucks. Steve has always tried to be out front when it comes to new technology and these vehicles are top of the line.
In the end, Steve says he's still as excited as he was about the business as he was all those years ago. As his syrup customers in Maine and his newspaper customers in New Jersey will attest — don't bet against Steve Rush.
“There’s no reason to have drivers sleep in sleepers. There’s no reason for them to be out on the road for months on end. Plan better. Take care of your drivers.”
