Dependable Name Ideas

truck company

Being reliable is key to running a successful trucking business.

Will the load get there on time? Will my product arrive in tact? These are the most common concerns of any shipper. If a shipment fails to arrive on-time or safely there can be major financial consequences for a business. These names like these, you’ll (at least partially) put these customer’s minds at ease.

Speedy Name Ideas

On the road again.

While you never want to exceed the speed limit in a big rig, getting a shipment fast and safe will always be important to customers. Positioning your business as quick and reliable are features that will never go out of style. Here are some suggestions you can use as inspiration.

  • Faster Pace Delivery
  • High-Velocity Trucking Company
  • Minutes Matter Delivery Group
  • Punctual Carrier LLC

Personal Trucking Company Names

This is a common way trucking company names are created. It’s not very original, but it works. Often, the last name of the founder is whose name is proudly displayed on the side or front of the big rig. If you have a less popular name like Hackenberg (may have just made that name up) this approach can work well and will be available. On the other hand a name like Jackson Trucking… is likely already claimed. Here are a few examples how this might look.

  • Brendenberg Trucking Company
  • Bernstrom Trucks LLC
  • Kovar Carriers Inc.
  • Brodie Long Haulers
  • Gertrude Safe Shippers
  • Nick’s Comforting Carrier

Funny Trucking Company Names

These names might get a laugh out of your drinking buddies. But be careful when trying to get overly clever with your business name. Not everyone has the same sense of humor as you do and you might lose out on some runs if you select any of these. Still… some of these are worth a laugh.

  • BS Trucking
  • Middle Finger Transporters
  • The Cursing Dispatcher
  • Smoke Stack Truckers LLC
  • Up in Flames Trucking
  • Five-o-Clock Somewhere Transportation

Catchy Trucking Company Names

Trucking Company Name Ideas

Profitable Trucking Company Name Ideas.

There aren’t many transportation company names with truly clever or memorable names. Most of them adhere to the following formula (Insert Name) Trucking Company LLC. Here are a few ideas we think will keep you top of mind.

  • The Pink Trucking Company LLC
  • Momma Know’s Best Transportation Services
  • Heavy Metal Trucking
  • Rock & Rolling Trucking Services
  • Sing the Blue’s Trucking Inc.
  • Making Trucking Great Again LLC
  • Elephant and Donkey Transporters

Trucking Company Name Generator

If you really want to crank up the number of ideas, you can use an online name generator. How these generators work is you enter a core word or phrase that you want included in your brand name. Then click submit and a computer program will return all sorts of name suggestions. Some of these will be pretty lame. But you can find some interesting ideas you would have never come up with otherwise.

One tool I really like is the business name generator from Shopify.  As an example, I typed the keyword “trucking” into the results page and here’s a small sample of the results.

  • Lakefront Trucking
  • Country Trucking
  • Jackpot Trucking
  • Limitless Trucking
  • Viewpoint Trucking

Here’s a few more examples using the search “carrier” instead:

  • Carrier Labs
  • Open Carrier
  • Freedom Carrier
  • Independence Carrier
  • Lifetime Carrier

Is a Business Name Important in the Truck Industry?

Some will argue the name of a long haul truck company doesn’t matter. You could name it just about anything under the sun and it would still work assuming you do a good job. After all, we’re not starting the next Apple here. We’re driving big rigs from point A to point B.

There is truth to this perspective. While the name of your company, won’t be a primary consideration, your reputation will be important and will be attached to your name overtime. If you have a history of working well with others and delivering loads on time, you’ll get repeat business. If not, you’ll at best be less successful.

What’s the Future Hold for the Transportation Industry?

What does the future hold for the transportation industry?

No one has a crystal ball that can reveal exactly what the future holds for any industry. Even entrepreneurs that have made a fortune in a given industry don’t usually that they could be disrupted by over the next one, five, or ten years. Take the taxi cab industry as a recent example.

One thing we do know is there’s going to be some massive changes in the trucking industry over the next decade. Being aware of these potential industry shifts is good to understand before investing in any new business.

Don’t get us wrong, we believe the need for independent trucking companies will remain strong for the foreseeable future. But that doesn’t mean you should stick your head in the sand. Change happens in every industry. And it’s not always a bad thing either.

One company that’s working to disrupt the trucking industry is Uber Freight. This company is the equivalent of ride-sharing for the transportation industry connecting carriers to shippers inside a user friendly app.

One of the logistical benefits of using Uber Freight for carriers is that you have a variety of loads that you can sign up for a shipment when you have availability. If you want work, you can get it. If you don’t feel like working, you can take the day off.

While this platform can add flexibility for drivers and logistic benefits for shippers, it’s not all roses for the drivers. Drivers don’t get health benefits or dental through these services.

In the ride-share industry, drivers have also complained that they get paid less and less over the years. The ride-share industry needs to keep prices low to better compete. Longterm this could mean less money for drivers. This report from TheStreet.com estimates drivers probably only make $8.55 – $11.77.

Will this sort of innovation be positive or negative for the trucking industry? Only time will tell.

Longterm though? Businesses need physical items shipped across the country. This is a service that grocery stores, department stores, and manufacturing companies all need. Truck driving as a business isn’t going anywhere soon.

There are also regularly reports like this one from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics that says there’s a shortage in the labor market for truck drivers.  There’s also trouble retaining truck drivers. All of this signals longterm security for owners and operators.

The Bottom Line

One part of the truck driving job that’s appealing to many that entering the career is independence. Many of us that enter the profession don’t need someone looking over their shoulder all day to get a job done well. Men and women that enter the transportation industry are self motivated, skilled, and have incredible endurance. If you didn’t have these personality traits, you couldn’t be a successful truck driver.

This natural independence makes it easy to see why so many existing long-haul truck drivers ultimately decide to go into business for themselves. We wish you success and smooth roads as you continue the process of starting your business.

Remember to take your time when deciding on a brand name and image for your trucking company. Your decision can have an impact on people’s immediate perception of you and ultimately the profitability of the business.

We recommend taking a few days or even a few weeks to identify a unique name that fits your goals. There’s no rush! Moving too fast and selecting a name that doesn’t match your vision longterm could end up being a major hassle. This is not a decision you should take lightly. This is something to think about while you’re out on the road!
