It was strong, loyal partnerships that started Bellerud Transport back in 1955 when, just shortly after graduating high school, Dick Bellerud borrowed $1,000 from his grandmother to start trucking.
Dick drove for more than 20 years and became very well-known in the trucking industry. By the mid 1970’s, he was so well known that other truckers often called him to find loads. This took him into the brokerage business, which he started in his home at Grafton ND.
By the 1980’s Bellerud Transport had continued to grow as a brokerage & trucking firm. In 1982 Larry Bellerud, Dick's son, joined the company. They relocated to Fargo ND in 1990.
In 1989 Paul Shereck joined the organization and in 1991 Rob Kraft started. Bellerud Transport had put in place a solid management foundation to support them long term. Along with a solid leadership team, strong partnerships continued to fuel the growth at Bellerud; especially key partnerships like Jennie-O Turkey Stores, Petals West and the Lid Company. Throughout the changes and growth, Bellerud Transport never compromised on quality.
