John Veriha - 1980s

John Veriha, company founder and over-the-road truck driver, poses with his early 1980s Freightliner cabover.

In 1978, John Veriha established his trucking company in Porterfield, Wisconsin. As the company’s sole employee, John made long haul interstate runs, transporting products to California and back. Despite humble beginnings, John’s reputation of dedication and reliability allowed the company to grow and prosper. The business moved to nearby Marinette, Wisconsin in 1982 to allow for continued expansion.

Now owned and operated by his daughter Karen, Veriha Trucking provides transportation solutions in 48 states and parts of Canada. Our fleet of 250+ drivers operates out of four terminal locations to serve a variety of customers and industries. Today, our trucks haul everything from paper products, groceries and produce, pet food, auto parts, and much more. 

Although our family-owned company has evolved and grown in the past four decades, our core values and goals have not changed: our Veriha Industry Professionals (VIPs) still strive to provide sustainable, affordable, and safety-conscious transportation solutions to our vast customer network.
