With one truck, one trailer, one customer, and a full load of hard work and determination, Tom Donahue Trucking, Inc. was founded by Tom and Pat Donahue in November 1972.

From those early days when they only operated in the City of Milwaukee, 43 years later, Tom Donahue Trucking has grown to provide transportation solutions to hundreds of local, national, and international partners.

Their son Tom joined them in the mid 1980's and worked his way up from the dock, the truck, the office, and after earning his degree from Marquette University purchased Tom Donahue Trucking Inc. when Tom and Pat retired.

As the 2nd generation Owner and President Tom Jr. has expanded across the country and currently guides the Donahue team with operations in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
