Where it All Began
Fortified Development Trucking started when one of the partners began researching the trucking industry. He only found low-paying opportunities with taxing schedules, making it difficult to maintain a healthy home life.
In response to the struggle, the partners pooled their experience to create a solution to meet their needs, as well as offering viable employment opportunities for individuals coming out of incarceration.
Deciding to walk in faith, in 2019, they launched Fortified Development Trucking.
Fortified Development Trucking is a family-owned business who believes in relationship. Through partnerships in the community and the trucking industry, they are working to build a transportation company that delivers not only freight, but hope to the community.

In the spring of 2020, the world experienced the challenge of COVID-19. With Fortified Development Trucking just starting out, they continued to move general freight in their 26 foot box truck, taking every precaution to keep themselves and those around them safe.
