Maintaining your business 


For the many years we’ve been in business, we have been striving to provide our clients the best quality service possible to gain their full satisfaction. And they’ve shown their appreciation by coming back to us repeatedly. 


We aspire to be the trucking company for all your trucking needs.

Our reputation is the backbone of our customer base. We rely heavily on our repeat customers to keep our business strong and ensure we can still offer the quality you've come to expect. 

Looking ahead, our mission remains the same as the day we began business. We hope you'll keep looking to us as the professional and experienced team you've known since the beginning. 

​Read about our expansion and building plans:

Tim Schenk, owner of Schenk Trucking, purchased the business in June 2015. Tim's purchase quickly doubled the trucking fleet's size and expanded the company by acquiring several new customers. Tim and Lisa have continued the legacy the Fowlds' family began. 



Dakota Carriers was founded in 1992 by Jim and Brigitte Fowlds. Jim drove truck and Brigitte dispatched. By their second year, they had 10-12 employees and a steady supply of John Morrells meat and Starmark cabinets. Every year since, there has been gradual customer and driver growth. The Fowlds' built the business on principles of unwavering quality, service, and customer-friendly attitude. Those principles have become a legacy. 

"By far the best company I've ever been with! Tim had just bought the company when I came on board. Thank you all for treating us like people and not just a number." - Kathy H.
