Full Answer

Fastline was founded by William G. Howard in Kentucky in 1978, when it was originally a single print publication called The Kentucky Truck Trader that specialized in advertising listings for used and new trucking equipment. In 1981, the company was renamed Fastline and included five different trucking industry publications that focused on fields from sales to industry new and trends. Due to an increased demand from both readers and advertisers, the company began to investigate the possibility of entering different related industries.

In 1986, Fastline purchased two smaller publications that would be known as the Ohio Fastline and the Indiana Fastline, both of which were agricultural trade publications. This allowed the company to enter into the field of farming and agricultural equipment and machinery. In 1996, Fastline purchased the MCW Printing company, which allowed it the ability to print its own publications internally and thus expand its territory of coverage to Mexico and eventually South America.
