The Beginning

Ed and Laura Werner opened a service station providing gas in 1933 and added a tank wagon service in the early 40’s.

The trucking part of the business started out as a straight truck hauling grains and coal. In 1945 we started a hog buying station. We expanded to 5 rigs, some of which pulled grain by day and hogs by night into Omaha.

Werner’s first semi was purchased in 1946. It was an International, and it pulled a 40-foot trailer livestock trailer. We expanded the hog hauling farther out and went to Fort Worth, TX; Chicago, IL, and Detroit, MI. We started hauling cattle back to the Midwest as these longer distances began.

We quit the service station and tank wagon in the early 80’s to concentrate on the trucking. In the long haul livestock era, we had approximately 15 trucks running.

In 1994 we built a shop in St. Edward. After bringing a load of cattle back from the south, the trucks were then serviced on the weekends. In early 2000 we expanded the shop and opened it up to maintain and repair the many semi-trucks that were increasing in numbers in the area.

Werner Service & Trucking, Inc. Today

The business has continued to change and evolve due to the changing landscape of the rural area. We’ve hauled coal, grains, hogs, and cattle, and today we have added by-products from the ethanol plants as well as other products.

Werner Service and Trucking continues to be a family-owned business and has been serving our customers needs for four generations.

Located in St. Edward, NE we presently have a fleet of 18 trucks pulling tanker, belt, and livestock trailers. Notably, we operate mostly in the Midwest and South Eastern states.

Our full-service shop operates six days a week and includes a drive-through truck wash on site.

Above all we pride ourselves on our safe driving records, reliability, competitive rates, and the ability to meet our customers’ needs.

For over 80 years we’ve worked to build a good solid reputation, becoming a name our customers know and trust.

At Werner Service and Trucking, Inc. we look forward to serving you well into the future.
