In 1970 John T. Sharp founded Sharp Transportation of Wellsville, Utah which is located 75 miles north of Salt Lake City in beautiful Cache Valley. Zan Sharp, John’s son, incorporated Sharp Transportation in January of 1990 after acquiring the company from his father. Since then, Sharp Transportation has grown to include 170 employees that run 200 trucks, 500 trailers, 25 outside carriers, and offices in Salt Lake, Twin Falls, Seattle, and the headquarters in Wellsville.Now, our president is Zan Sharp.
To say Zan Sharp knows a lot about the trucking business is like saying water knows a lot about being wet. He immersed himself in it right out of high school, driving trucks for his father’s company at age 18. Three years later, Zan started dispatching. Then, in 1990, he and his wife decided to take over Sharp. At the time, the company was small, but Zan felt that if he worked hard, he could grow the business. His can-do spirit is reflected in the company philosophy, “We’ll do it.” Those three simple words have been the driving force that has built Sharp Transportation’s reputation as one of the most flexible trucking companies in the United States.
Zan often finds himself reflecting on the success of the company, especially since he's been here since the beginning. “Sharp Transportation has grown to become what my dad always wanted. He dreamed of a trucking company run by the family, where we would work together during the week and play together during weekends.” His dream has come true, as his wife and all three children have worked for the company.
Two of Zan's biggest priorities are his clients and his drivers. His clients know this because of the on-time deliveries. His CDL drivers know this because of how Sharp Trucking is run. Zan works hard with the office teams to ensure that all of their drivers stay happy and healthy while they are out on the road. With perks including new trucks every three years, and monthly mileage and safety bonuses, Sharp Transportation is a company that is here for its employees.
With Sharp Transportation, you will never have to worry about having enough miles. There is consistent freight, so there is always work if you want it. Zan and the team have worked hard to provide pre-planned dispatch. This means that you won't have to wait forever at the dock. We even offer a rider program. All CDL drivers get all of their benefits within 90 days of driving for Sharp Transportation. After all, the best way to have a successful logistics company is to be sure that your drivers are just as successful.
