A Special Message from Hugh Ekberg

CRST Default Featured Image

It’s an honor to lead CRST International as the new President and CEO. I am thrilled with this new role and I’m excited about the opportunity our company has to grow and flourish, with all of you, our partners. Whether you are an employee, customer, agent, driving teammate, supplier or support player, you are an instrumental part in making our company successful…both today and into the future.

Over the past two years as COO/Group President, I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with our operating companies, understanding what is most important to the business needs for both customers and employees. My passion is ensuring that we unleash the full capability of our organization to ensure every driver, every day, is successful in delivering every load to our customer’s satisfaction. If our drivers are successful, we are ALL successful.

When deciding to join the CRST organization what stood out most to me was the opportunity to continue to grow our business, by capitalizing on the full potential of our eight operating companies. As one of the largest privately held transportation and logistics companies in the United States, our broad array of transportation solutions, including expedited, flatbed, dedicated, brokerage, transportation management, white-glove moving services for high-value products, final mile, drayage and warehouse services, can provide a solution to virtually every transportation need.

CRST is an outstanding company with a tremendous future and a talented, passionate team. I am excited to build upon that team as we continue to develop the organization and make it the premier provider for our customer’s transportation needs. I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead this company in the future.

If you have any questions about CRST and our plans, please feel free to contact me directly at any time. I can be reached at or 319-731-5609.
