In 1955, Dick Simon sold his car to buy a 2-ton tractor.
In 1980, Dick’s sons began working with him.
A legacy was born.
Dick Simon traded his new car for a 2-ton tractor and 32-foot trailer. He made his first trip hauling feed from Provo to southern California ranchers and then returning with a load of fish meal from Long Beach.
In his early years, Dick was driving nonstop. “By the time I was 35 I couldn’t do it anymore,” he said. Thus, in 1972 he ended his sole proprietorship and incorporated as Dick Simon Trucking, Inc.
In the early 80’s, Dick Simon Trucking was running over 25 tractors and was growing rapidly. Dick’s son, Lyn, began assisting his father in the office.
After 5 years at the company, Lyn became the VP of Sales for Dick Simon Trucking, Inc.
Leveraging decades of experience in the family business, Lyn Simon ventured out on his own and, together with his wife Helen, founded Simon Transport. They were set on creating a company that treated each and every driver as part of the family instead of just a truck number.
Today, Simon Transport is 30+ trucks strong. We continue to dedicate our work to providing a great living for and relationship with our drivers, maintaining our reputation as “So Stinkin’ Dependable” with our customers, and having fun while doing it.
Lyn began in transportation in 1980 at Dick Simon Trucking and was promoted to VP of Sales in 1985. He now owns Simon Transport with his wife, Helen. His favorite part of the job is being able to personally meet each driver and employee.
Helen Hamilton Simon founded Simon Transport with Lyn Simon in 2004. She previously worked as the Marketing Director for Wells Fargo. She has a deep conviction for helping others and harnesses that to ensure the happiness of each driver and office employee. She is in charge of marketing, finance, and human resources for Simon Transport.
When a carrier takes on investors, the possibility of leaving drivers stranded on the side of the road increases. Our drivers are our family and our mission is to always keep them moving. That is our promise to you.
