Legend Transportation Inc. started from 1 truck and 1 man, Sunny Samara (Owner/Founder). Mr. Samara started driving at 22 for a company in California for 3 years in 1996. When he was 25, he purchased his own truck and hauled for a few companies, including Sysco Foods and U.S. Foods, throughout the continental United States. In 2008, Legend Transportation was incorporated.
At first, we hired owner/ operators along with their tractor-trailers and provided them with freight to haul. In 2012, our company began purchasing its own tractor-trailers.
Thirteen years after being founded we have established several partnerships with mostly Fortune 500 companies in the retail and food industries, including Walmart, Target, Macy’s, Home Depot, Ross Stores, General Mills, Coca-Cola and many others. These companies have helped us grow tremendously over the years, which says a lot about the long-term relationships we have built with them. We now provide more than 1,000 tractors and more than 4,000 plated trailers throughout the Western Region. We have also grown to over 100 employees at 3 main office locations. With double digit growth year after year, we continue to reinvest back into the company.
Legend Transportation hauls goods to more than 30 cities in 12 western states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Texas, Utah and Wyoming. Our offerings include truckload over the road (OTR), dedicated contract carriage, direct-store delivery freight services and temperature-controlled delivery of produce and perishable goods. We also offer expedited and e-commerce services.
“Putting Customers First”
What You Can Expect From Us
Legend Transportation hires the most highly skilled drivers and rewards them for their safe, courteous driving and clear communication. In our on-time delivery service scorecards, our company scores consistently above 90% (with most misses attributed to unavoidable bad weather).
Customer service with a personal touch is top-of-mind for all of Legend Transportation’s 120 employees. We are easy to reach — a calling customer won’t be put on hold or have the call transferred multiple times before reaching the appropriate person.
Technology makes us modern and nimble. All of our trucks are equipped with Omnitracs fleet management systems integrated with McLeod Loadmaster software that links each tractor’s electronic control module (ECM) with its customers’ electronic data interface (EDI).
Through embracing the latest technology, providing excellent customer service, applying a safety-first mindset and exercising environmental responsibility with best practices in fuel economy and exhaust emission reduction, Legend Transportation is driven to provide excellent results.
