How Our Company Started

The story of Behne Inc. began in 1970—founder Nathan Behne went into business with one truck, hauling grain throughout the Midwest US. Now, we’ve become a leader in Minnesota trucking and freight brokerage with a fully assembled fleet of top-of-the-line T800 Kenworth Conventional trucks. These heavy-duty trucks are ready to haul steel, machinery, plastic pipes, lumber, and agricultural and industrial equipment.

Initially, our reach only extended from the Dakotas to Minnesota, but 50 years later, we haul freight to and from all over the continental US. With our fleet, we can deliver your full load or LTL freight anywhere it needs to be.

Nathan’s son, Rick, purchased the business in 2015; and today, he continues running our trucking and freight broker company as his father did.
