Dave and Marge Van Handel founded V&S Midwest Carriers Corp. in 1986 with one truck and a never-ending commitment to exceeding customer satisfaction. With this commitment as a foundation, the company grew quickly through the 1990’s as the company added lifelong drivers and employees who shared the same passion as the founders, many who are still here today celebrating 20+ years with the company. In the 90’s, the company also started transitioning much of it’s business to truckload refrigerated service and moved all operations under one roof in Kaukauna, WI consolidating operations with the safety and warehouse /shop which were previously at separate locations. In the 2000’s, as the company continued to grow, it was quickly realized that sustainability would not be met with hard work alone. In 2009 the company reformed their management structure, rethought their Vision, Mission and Core Values and made a commitment in technology to improve safety, customer service and operations. In 2012 V&S remodeled their current facility in Kaukauna to house it’s growing operations department as well as purchased an additional building in Kaukauna which houses our new shop operations.
