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 of Heartland Express.
