West Side Transport is now a dog-friendly trucking company (not that we didn’t love dogs before!). We are now allowing dogs to be your traveling companion while you drive for the best company in the industry. West Side Transport’s Wellness committee is devoted to providing our drivers with the healthiest lifestyle possible while being out on the open road. By having a dog on the truck you will now have all of the benefits that come with having a dog! The list includes boosting your mood, keeping you active, socialize with other people, stress reliever, companionship, and someone to talk to (it’s not weird)!
Not everyone wants or can have a dog in their truck, but if your choose to we now have that available!

The day has come! After 6 months of effort, teamwork and personal donations, the employees of West Side Transport raised over $31,000 to buy a new 2017 Wabash trailer. This morning, we launch the trailer to the public! Join us in the fight!
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.
