The history of McLeod Express, LLC

  • 2019, Mark McLeod names his son, Colt McLeod, President over the business. Colt started his trucking career as a teenager washing trucks in Assumption. Shortly after college, Colt started our brokerage division in St Louis, where he lived for 7 years before moving to Decatur with his family to take a larger role on the asset side of the business. After spending two years in Decatur in various departments expanding his knowledge of the trucking business, his hard work and dedication has been rewarded!
