As many industries are, the trucking industry is becoming more difficult
to enter. "The industry is not like it used
to be even 10 years ago," Magnum Cos.
President and CEO Wayne Gadberry
points out. "The equipment is much
more expensive and high tech. Employees have to be trained better than they
have in the past. The government does a
lot of regulation that you have to comply
with. Some of it is good, and some of it
you're not so sure, but you have to comply with it. So you just have to be able
to adapt to the technology and try to be
more efficient."
Truckload and LTL shipping are just
some of the services that Magnum Cos.
provide. They also offer their customers
logistics, dedicated fleet services, warehousing and even kitting. "We're pretty
much horizontally integrated throughout the supply chain industry," Gadberry
explains. "One of our trademarks is
'innovation with value.' Anybody can be
innovative, but if the solution doesn't

Midwest and moved back into a farming
operation," Gadberry recalls. "I bought
a few trucks for the farm to move our
commodities. Once our own moves
were completed, I had to find something
to do with these trucks. So I started
moving freight for hire, and that's how I
got into trucking."
He was shipping lime rock from Duluth, Minn., to several plants of American
Crystal Sugar Co., a co-op, to be used to
make beet sugar. "We also hauled other
agricultural commodities - wheat, barley, corn, soybeans," Gadberry remem-

bers. "We don't move farm commodities
anymore. We are into other logistics and
supply chain operations."
