Originally named Common Market, Jerry Moyes founded Swift Transportation in 1966. The original route involved transporting steel from Los Angeles to Arizona and returning to southern California with cotton. After his death in 1983, Jerry's son, Carl, became the owner and has acquired 13 other carriers since 1988. As of 2015, Swift has over 18,000 trucks, generates more than $4 billion in revenue, and claims to be the largest full-truckload carrier in North America.
