The values that move us. Hogan Driven.

A Tradition of Unparalleled,
Personalized Service

At the forefront of it all, the Hogan brothers remain dedicated to an over-riding 
commitment to customer satisfaction – a commitment that has been the foundation 
of their family’s success for nearly 100 years.


1918

Founded by Joseph Hogan in St. Louis as a local trucking company. He started a small, local cartage business to serve the needs of St. Louis’ business community. He was one man with one truck. Joseph’s customers were well served and word quickly spread that Hogan was a company to depend upon – a committed, loyal business partner to those it served.

1950s

Carl Hogan, Sr. joined his father in the family business and successfully led the company from the early 1950’s through the mid 1980’s.

During that time, Hogan’s service expanded to meet their clients’ growing transportation needs. The U.S. interstate highway system evolved, making trucking a viable, economical mode of shipping. And new clients – responding to positive, word-of-mouth referrals – partnered with Hogan to ensure the safe, reliable delivery of their products.

Under Carl’s leadership, Hogan grew from a small, local cartage company to a full-service, regional transportation provider.


1970s

The company continued to grow successfully.

Carl Hogan had a tremendous passion for Indy Racing. He enjoyed much success with his racing team, winning numerous races and championships with drivers such 
as Johnny Rutherford, Bobby Rahal, Dario Franchitti, 
and Helio Castroneves.


1980s

Carl’s three sons – Carl, Jr., David, and Brian – took over the day-to-day operations of the business in the mid 1980’s. Each worked closely together, learning the business and adopting the core values of the Hogan service tradition. From a one-truck, local delivery service their grandfather began, the Hogan brothers now lead a full- service, multi-faceted transportation company operating throughout North America.
