The origin of Seward Motor Freight can be traced back to the early 1940’s when it was formed to haul freight between Omaha and Seward, Nebraska. After having had several owners through the years, Wayne and Joan Tanderup purchased and incorporated the business in 1969. At the time they purchased the business, they had seven employees working for them.
The business continued to grow throughout the 1970’s and Wayne and Joanie acquired long haul permits from the I.C.C. (Interstate Commerce Commission) to haul general commodities throughout the continental United States. In 1987, Seward Motor Freight was granted contract authority. Throughout the 1980’s, several smaller carriers were acquired by Seward Motor Freight, Inc., expanding their base of operations and driver base.
