About Us


R.T. Transportation Inc. was started in 1984 by Mike Milcarek, Tom Miski, and Bob Anderson. All three owners worked for Santa Fe Trail Transportation, a division of Santa Fe Railroad, in key positions. When Santa Fe Trail was sold in 1984, Mike, Tom, and Bob, with a combined trucking experience of 85 years, saw an opportunity to create a competitive high performance Brokerage/Agency; hence , R.T. Transportation Inc began serving the shipping public. Originally based in Orland Park, IL, we quickly out grew our facility and relocated to Palos Heights, IL. After 9 ½ years in Palos Heights, IL R.T. Transportation Inc bought a larger facility in New Lenox, IL where we continue our operations today.


Our number one priority is customer service. R.T. Transportation Inc prides itself on providing our customers with high quality service, experienced dispatchers, and competitive pricing. Our responsibility to our customers is to personally handle each load as our most important load.
