About Laufer Trucking

Parade black and white

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.

In 2006, Al & Carolyn purchased the former Midas Corporation in Hartford are turned it into Wacker Drive Logistics, a full-service warehouse operation. In 2010, Al and Carolyn’s daughter Krista joined the business and is an active part of the day-to-day operations.
