About Us                                                                             Miller Family Timeline

 
At MinStar Transport, we take great pride in our roots, which reach back four decades before the company’s founding in 2008.

MinStar’s business ethics and philosophy were established with timeless lessons learned during the years President Mitch Miller worked at North Star Transport. Co-founded by his father in the mid 1960's, North Star Transport specialized in snowmobile transportation. Mitch started out in the shop doing trailer maintenance and then hit the road as a driver for many years. In 1994, Mitch moved in to the office, eventually joining upper management.

Trucking has been a long Miller family tradition, and that tradition is being carried on through MinStar Transport. MinStar attracted many of the drivers and office staff who helped build North Star’s reputation for quality customer service. This wealth of experience, along with fresh new talent, has enabled MinStar to grow successfully. We offer our core dry van services and established a specialized Double Deck Trailer system to an increasing list of premium customers.

Today, MinStar combines the vigor and enthusiasm of a young company with the expertise of an established firm. MinStar has earned the confidence of its customers, the pride of its workforce, and the respect of its competitors.

"At MinStar Transport, we are committed to delivering quality service with superior customer satisfaction and success."
~ Mitch Miller, President, MinStar Transport, Inc.
