Ownership


Founded as Gordon Fast Freight in 1946 with just two trucks, Jay Gordon started out hauling beer from Vancouver, WA to Tacoma, WA for his first customer, the Lucky Lager Brewery. In 1984, Jay sold the company to his son Larry and his wife Virginia. Larry and Virginia's children, Steve and Scott Gordon became actively involved in the company in the early 90's. As third generation leaders and Gordon Trucking shareholders, Steve and Scott helped build the company into an industry leading, 2000 truck carrier. Gordon Trucking was sold to Heartland Express in November of 2013. Today, Steve and Scott Gordon are part of the leadership group and officers of Heartland Express. Additionally, Larry Gordon was invited to become a member of the Heartland Board of Directors and the Gordon Family collectively owns a significant amount of Heartland Express Stock (HTLD).
