About Laufer Trucking
Laufer Trucking, Inc. began when Al Laufer bought his first truck in late 1976. Al had been driving truck for several years when he decided to give it a try on his own. When Al’s first truck was paid off, he purchased a second truck in 1983 and hired his first employee, Robert Beine, who is still with us today.
After renting a facility on Union Street in Hartford for many years, Al and his wife, Carolyn, purchased land in the Western Industrial Park. The terminal they are currently in on Western Drive was built in 1996. The terminal includes a maintenance bay, a wash bay and several docks with warehousing space to accommodate both our fleet and our customers.
Over the years, Laufer Trucking has maintained an excellent safety record. Year after year Laufer Trucking is the recipient of Platinum or Gold National Safety Awards, from Great West Casualty, the nation’s largest insurer of the trucking industry. This award is reserved for the safest fleets on the road.
We constantly aim to provide high levels of service to our customers by understanding their needs and working to meet or exceed their expectations. Laufer Trucking invests in late model equipment to ensure smooth and timely deliveries. We have a wide variety of trailer styles to accommodate many types of shipments from the everyday movements to the specialized loads. We carry a high cargo insurance limit to protect your valuable shipments.
Laufer Trucking strives to be a partner in the community and beyond. Our biggest event is The World’s Largest Convoy for the Special Olympics. Each September as many as ten of our drivers will participate in the fundraiser. We also enjoy pulling the Hartford City Band through various local parades. There are many other events and charities that we sponsor and participate in throughout the year as well.
