Wellsville, UT
Sharp Transportation: a name you can trust in transportation. In 33 years of business, Sharp Transportation has grown from one building and a handful of trucks to a nationwide operation with warehouses and offices throughout the western United States. We continue to run our operation from a small town in Northern Utah.

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.

A commercial driver license (CDL) is a license required to operate large, heavy, or hazardous material vehicles in the US. The class of CDL a truck driver depends on the type of commercial motor vehicle operated. A truck driver may hold a CDL in one of three classes: Class A, Class B, and Class C.

Driver Type refers to the employment arrangement a driver operates. The most common truck driver arrangements include:

  • Company Driver: Drivers employed by a specific carrier with its own fleet of trucks. Companies can be carriers that contract to transport freight, or companies that carry their own freight.
  • Lease-Purchase: Drivers hired by carriers where the truck is leased to the individual driver.
  • Owner Operator (OO): Drivers who own the truck and operate as an independent business (also referred to as an "independent contractor").
  • Team Driver: Drivers operating with a partner who shares driving duties.

Hauling Type (or trailer type, or equipment type) refers to the type of cargo being hauled. Different types of cargo materials require different types of trailers, and each type of trailer requires unique driver experience.

Endorsements are required certifications for CDL holders hauling various types of equipment and freight. The most common endorsements for long haul truck drivers include:

  • Doubles/Triples: required for drivers hauling double or triple trailers.
  • HazMat: required for transporting hazardous materials.
  • Tanker: required for operating a vehicles designed with a permanent or temporary tank attached.
