Road Name History:
C.R. England, Inc. is an American family-owned trucking company founded in 1920. The company provides temperature-controlled transportation services throughout North America and Mexico. England Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of C.R. England, provides full truckload brokerage services, intermodal, and dry and cold chain less-than-truckload services, and supply chain management.

Chester Rodney England was born in 1896 to a farming family who lived in Plain City, Utah. In 1920, Chester bought his first Model T truck to provide farm to market service for farmers in Weber County and the Cache Valley. Then, he began hauling milk for the Weber Dairy. During World War II, England would buy Mexican bananas entering the US at El Paso, Texas he then distributed these throughout Utah. After their military service England's sons helped bringing bananas to Utah and returning to Texas with potatoes. As the operation grew, several trucks were added to the fleet. At the height of this era, the packing of Idaho potatoes became a vital part of the business. The England family was operating two packing sheds and a storage facility to enhance the trucking operation.As the Central American bananas became available, the Mexican fruit could not compete in quality, so the banana haul was replaced with produce and the focus of the operation moved to California and Arizona. C.R. England then offered 72-hour coast-to-coast service, new to US shippers. The first trip to the east coast was taken by a driver by the name of Robert Gould. Within a year C.R. England opened an office in the Philadelphia market. Within a short period of time, C.R. England opened a "real" terminal at Pennsauken, New Jersey. In 1978, C.R. England moved its east coast operations to Burlington, New Jersey. In 1982, with advancement in technology, C.R. England was able handle to the east coast operations from the Utah terminal. It now operates terminals in California, New Jersey, Indiana and Texas.
