Transportation Company - Campbell 66 Express - Trucking

Company History: Campbell 66 Express was founded by Franklin George Campbell in 1926 in Springfield, Missouri. Originally started as Campbell Fuel & Transfer it became Campbell 66 Express, Inc. when a local banker asked Frank if he would take over Rapid “66” Express, a truck line operating down Route 66 from St.Louis to Springfield. It was 1933.

The pattern of expansion by the major truck lines came to an end with the passing of the Deregulation Act of 1980. For 45 years the regulated trucking industry had operated under strict regulation and the new Act was such a drastic change that many vanished. Campbell “66” was one of many that disappeared. In 1986 after 60 years the Company declared patch-0311bankruptcy and its status as a Missouri Corporation was ended in 1997.
