Customers Trust Us
Our drivers care about your shipment like it is their personal possession. That’s why we have so many customers who have chosen G.L. Wasko & Sons as their preferred carrier over the last 40 years. We have built an especially strong reputation among Southwestern Michigan’s manufacturing community because of our ability to transport all types of shipments including high dollar cargo competently and safely.
Gerald Wasko founded the company in 1975, working with his son Jeff out of their Stevensville, Michigan home hauling produce, agricultural products and industrial sand. Son Gary joined them in 1979 doing shop work and graduating to a driver as soon as age allowed. In 1980 daughter Sherry joined Mom Sylvia in handling paperwork and phones. By 1986 they had growing pains and moved the operation to the current location in Bridgman, Michigan. Because their business evolved in direct response to customer needs, they added a 10,000 square foot heated warehouse with four dock doors in 1998. Their location is convenient, easily accessible to I-94 and along the corridor between Detroit and Chicago.
G.L. Wasko & Sons is solidly based on strong values of personalized customer service, time sensitivity, and intensive oversight of every shipment. Gerald’s grandsons, Jim, Tyler, and Brady are now carrying on those family values. We demonstrate those values not only in operating our business but also in giving back to our community.
You could say we have all inherited our commitment to our customers; it’s simply in our DNA. You can rely on us. Our personalized service will lead to a long-term, trusting relationship. Whether you are shipping 800 lbs or 48,000 lbs, egg cartons or iron beams, one load or 100 loads call us and let us take the “worry” out of all your shipping needs.
