Consider the days of Pony Express when highways and bridges were almost unknown but the mail had to be delivered in spite of severe weather, deep snow and dangerous streams. Change, of course, is inevitable and through the years transporting the mail has become more sophisticated. The equipment today certainly rides better and faster than horses and our modern-day infrastructure makes crossing dangerous waters much safer and easier.
So, how does a one-truck U.S. mail carrier grow to become the largest ground transportation supplier to the United States Postal Service?
The Salmon Companies story began in 1946. Every night, Pat Salmon would drive his straight truck from Harrison, Arkansas to Little Rock ensuring the mail was delivered safely on time, every time. That same focus and dedication continues throughout the company to this day.
Today, the company transports mail in almost every state in the nation, partnering with the USPS to safely and efficiently transport the nation’s mail while controlling cost and providing the best value.
Salmon Companies operates with three objectives:
- Provide exceptional service and value to our customers.
- Provide a safe and rewarding working environment for our employees.
- Be professional ambassadors of the road, as recognized by those who share the road with us.
