Trucking companies make up the transportation industry worldwide, focusing on the movement of goods on highways and roads. However, some of the biggest trucking firms also offer other types of transportation, such as air, rail, and sea. They also provide logistical and supply-chain management solutions to speed delivery at a lower cost to more destinations. Even though U.S. companies dominate the list of companies with 10, two Japanese firms are the largest, with their companies ranking in 2nd place.
These are the top 10 trucking firms based on twelve-month trailing revenue. Some companies that are not in the U.S. report profits semi-annually instead of quarterly, which means the trailing 12-month data could be more recent than for companies that publish quarterly. This list only applies to publicly traded in the U.S. or Canada, directly or via ADRs. The data comes from YCharts.com. The figures are current as of September 10.
