West Side Transport’s history started more than 60 years ago as a family run business. Dale Vogt was always looking for new and more efficient ways to get things done. He started by picking up spilled grain in the Cedar Rapids railroad yards. He would screen it to remove gravel and other impurities. Then, he would resell it as feed grain. “We would go down with pickup trucks, scoop shovels and bushel baskets to clean this grain. We’d bring it back and feed it to the livestock. I remember one Saturday morning when we picked up more than 10 pickup loads of grain,” Don remembered.
