C.R. England works through grief

Monday, May 6 2013 admin

C.R. England has risen to success as one of America’s largest trucking companies in large part, because the company has been able to maintain their focus and strong leadership through highs and lows. These characteristics have served them well through the recent unexpected death of CEO Wayne Cederholm.

Mr. Cederholm was a part of C.R. England’s growth for over 30 years, serving in many capacities throughout the company. In his time, the trucking firm grew from an $18 million business to a powerhouse of $1.5 billion. President Dean England stated that Mr. Cederholm “left a mark on this organization that will be imprinted forever. In spite of our sorrow we honor him and pay tribute to a life well lived.”

It is in spite of their sorrow that C.R. England continues to forge on. The Salt Lake City-based transportation giant has worked quickly and efficiently to adjust through their loss and carry on with eyes ever-forward. The executive level has been reorganized with several England family members stepping into new roles. Each executive has been an active part of the company, beginning their trucking industry careers at entry level positions and usually from the time they were old enough to ride along in a truck or work in the warehouses.

The C.R. England commitment to excellence for their customers begins with their own family and employees striving forward with quality, hard work, and integrity. These traits have been displayed by the England family since Chester Rodney England purchased his first truck to provide farm-to-market delivery for his farming neighbors. Today’s trucks are a far cry from that first Model T with a homemade bench in it; Freightliners, Peterbilts,and International tractors form a strong fleet of well-equipped trucks.
