Our History

Rowe Trucking LLC is the brainchild of Rhonda Rowe, who gained trucking industry experience from the Arthur L. Rowe Trucking company founded by her father, Arthur Rowe, in 1967, during a time when Black owner operators comprised just seven percent of all truckers in the United States, according to Census data.

For 40 years, Arthur successfully ran his trucking business in Detroit. Following a brief retirement from the business, Rhonda had the idea to revive, reinvent and join the family business as its chief executive officer. The new Rowe Trucking LLC also provided Rhonda the opportunity to play an active role in the revitalization of her hometown of Detroit—the city she loves—and build on her father’s legacy.

Building a Family Legacy

In 2007, Rhonda became a second-generation aggregate hauler providing solutions to a wide range of hauling and transportation challenges. Rhonda’s passion for the trucking industry ultimately inspired Arthur to come out of retirement to join his daughter in the family’s new business venture.

Today, Rowe Trucking LLC continues to bear the family name and is now where Arthur manages the company’s maintenance department. The family-owned business is further positioned for world-class competitiveness and has established relationships with industry leaders including Angelo Iafrate Construction, Barton Malow, Cadillac Asphalt, LJ Construction, Walsh Toebe Joint Venture and others.
