Leavitt’s Freight Service was established in 1958 by three brothers: Doug, Dean, and Dewey Leavitt. The brothers began providing transportation service to two main industries: treated wood poles and laminated beams. With a lot of hard work and determination, the Leavitt brothers successfully established Leavitt’s Freight Service as the most dependable flatbed trucking company in the state of Oregon.
In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, the Leavitt brothers introduced the use of a chain driven boom to unload telephone and power poles directly to their customers’ yards and job sites. They were also among the first to utilize steer trailers to move heavy, over-length loads. Both of these services became the foundation for Leavitt’s Freight and are still being offered today.
