On a New Journey

Posted on April 18, 2018

“If you take care of your people, everything else will take care of itself.”

Belief in my father’s words, Biblical principle, and prayer have guided us in everything we do at Nussbaum. We are excited to announce that we’ve taken a step on a new journey.

The Gift of Time - A Christmas Message

Posted on December 22, 2017

As we embrace this Christmas Season, what do you find more fulfilling, giving or receiving? If we were honest, most of us would say that we like receiving just as much as giving. Receiving a gift is great, but if we’re honest with ourselves, eventually, they leave us feeling, well you know, kind of empty. Contrast that to a hug from a friend, a call from a family member, an unexpected visit from someone we haven’t seen for a while. Doesn’t it give us a feeling of warmth?

Nussbaum recently had the opportunity to partner with local Christian radio station, WCIC to help fill a prison with hope.

We were able to provide flatbed trailers as a stage for two concerts that the station hosted at Logan Women’s Correctional Center in Lincoln, IL. The concerts were held August 20th inside the prison and featured Christian music group, Unspoken.

Still Celebrating Faith And Family!

Posted on May 29, 2017

It has been two years since we began our Faith & Family campaign that originally included 80 trailers wrapped in colorful vinyl graphics featuring 4 scenes that showcase family moments and activities.

These 4 scenes included a father teaching his daughter to ride a bike, a husband and wife enjoying a walk in nature, a father and his sons on a fishing trip, and a family gathered around a fire at their camping site.

Sharing Time With Family

Posted on December 30, 2016

In the midst of this Holiday Season, it’s easy to find ourselves overwhelmed with last minute gifts, the anxiety and anticipation of getting together with friends and family, and numerous Christmas parties.  It can be wearying.  But then, there’s hope; the message of Jesus Christ, the gift of a Savior, Christmas music, the warmth of a fireplace, and the rekindling of relationships.  I absolutely love this season!

Freightliner Sets the Bar for New Safety Technology

Posted on May 25, 2015

Earlier this month, we had the distinct privilege and honor of being invited to a groundbreaking event in Las Vegas to witness a significant new advance in truck technology.

Daimler Trucks North America, the manufacturer of Freightliner Trucks, unveiled the first “Autonomous Truck” licensed in the state of Nevada, or anywhere in the world for that matter. They call it the Inspiration Truck.


Celebrating Faith and Family

The Mission page on a company’s website can tell you a lot about that organization. Most will talk about integrity, treating their customers and employees with honesty and respect. But take a look at the Mission, Vision, and Values page of Nussbaum, and you will notice something different, something you won’t find on most trucking company’s websites. It talks about God. At Nussbaum, we believe that God owns this company, and we honor Him through the way we do business.
