Our History

Dakotaland Transportation, Inc. was founded in January 2000 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We are a 48-state contract carrier operating under authority granted by the federal department of transportation, Permit 369955.

As a company, we are dedicated to providing SAFE, RELIABLE, and PROFESSIONAL SERVICES to our customers. We are also very committed to our employees on a personal level.

The company was originally formed for exclusive transportation for Showplace Wood Products, a producer of kitchen and bath cabinetry, and we currently haul a variety of freight including windmill blades.

The company was founded by Bruce and Jerry Fowlds with a combined experience of 64 years in the trucking industry. Both partners believed in a family-oriented business, and our office staff and drivers reflect that every day. In 2022, Dakotaland became part of the True North family of independent companies.

We specialize in multiple stop truck loads with excellent drop pay. We also haul no touch loads with one to two drops for easy unloading. We use and  maintain late model equipment, so the drivers have safe and reliable vehicles.

When choosing Dakotaland as your employer, you will be part of the family and will be treated with honesty, dignity, and respect on a daily basis!
