Paper Transport, Inc. has been a Wisconsin Clean Cities member since 2009. Paper Transport, Inc. is a for-hire truckload carrier that offers regional truckload, dedicated truckload, intermodal and logistic services. Headquartered in De Pere, Wisconsin with multiple park locations/terminals throughout the Midwest and Southern United States, PTI has experienced tremendous growth since its start in 1990 and now employs over 850 professional Class A CDL Truck Drivers along with over 200 driver support professionals.
The company was founded because of a casual conversation between two friends, Lennie Shefchik and Roger Grimsely, during their weekly cribbage game that turned into something much, much more: the discovery of their entrepreneurial spirit, laying the foundation for the beginning of PTI.
In February of 1990, that foundation turned into an official trucking company when the first loads were pulled out of the Green Bay, Wisconsin area. Very quickly, PTI earned a solid reputation with their “get it done for the customer” attitude since it wasn’t unusual to see one of the founders, Lennie or Roger, jumping in a truck to deliver a load on time if a customer was in a pinch.
