Read about how the Nebraska Trucking Association recognized Sterling Transportation Services' accomplishments.
Lawrence Adams and his family have been in the cattle and beef business for generations. In 2004, Lawrence discovered the Wagyu breed of cattle by accident when he bought a group of cattle that was for sale. They graded off the chart! He quickly recognized that this breed and the meat it produces are truly unique in their tenderness and flavor. Since then, our family has acquired genetics and developed holistic production practices to raise this natural & high-quality beef. It is hormone and antibiotic-free beef.
Three partners came up with the name, Sterling Transportation Services, with "Sterling" meant to reflect the company's commitment to excellence. Sterling Transportation Services (STS) is a local and regional hauler of bulk agricultural and industrial goods - mostly feed and processed agricultural products, along with corn, soybeans and wheat, but also limeston, ash and fertilizers.
Sterling's customers range from large, multinational agribusinesses to family farms. Its coverage area is the upper Midwest – Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and the Dakotas. The company has two locations – a home office in Blair and also a shop and small office in Oskaloosa, Iowa, to support operations in that state. About a dozen of the STS trucks are based there.
In 2008, STS Truck Services was born offering heavy duty repair and maintenance for customers. It was started after other local trucking companies inquired about Sterling's own repair and maintenance services. It also sells diesel fuel.
"We had customers or people that came to us needing help with that, and we have a great crew of maintenance staff, and so we pivoted a little bit, not just to take care of our own vehicles but to help other people take care of their vehicles." - Chad Adams (Vice President).
2013, the company extended its reach nationwide by creating Sterling Brokerage Services for hauling bulk agricultural and industrial goods. As with the repair and maintenance services, it grew from requests by customers who wanted to ship to areas where STS didn’t cover.
Small Town Staffing was created out of a need from our customers to locate high quality candidates to fill their open job orders. With Sterling's "Can Do" spirt, open communication, and dedication to excellence Sterling's reputation soared as a "Trusted Transportation Solution" among the Midwest.
We're motivated to succeed, committed to deliver, team-focused, safe & knowledgeable experts, and we value positive relationships.
Our passion is making a difference with our partners. Our niche is delivering trusted transportation solutions.
Our vision is to become the best independent transportation service organization in the business.
