History & Mission


C.E. Pottle & Son was founded in 1962 by Clifton “Cliff” Pottle. After becoming incorporated in 1972, our company has grown into a nationally recognized carrier. President and CEO, Barry Pottle, purchased Pottle’s from his father in 1988. Since that time he has grown the company to 190+ trucks and 750+ trailers. Barry, who was a truck driver himself alongside his dad, believed in recruiting while maintaining the best drivers in the industry. Pottle’s now has third generation family members, Matt England and Chelsea Pottle Demmons, in key leadership positions as well. Barry served as Chairman of the American Trucking Associations (ATA) in 2018-2019.

As of November 2022, Pottle’s has been acquired by Bison Transport Inc. of Winnipeg, Canada. The Pottle’s mission will continue to live on through our new team, the Bison Family.


“Pottle’s Transportation will strive for growth and success by working safely as a team with our employees, customers, and suppliers. All employees will be provided with a safe and enjoyable work environment. All business decisions will continue to be made in the best interest of the company and its employees.”
