About Us

Caledonia Haulers: From Canned Milk to Transportation Leader

Caledonia Haulers has grown from hauling canned milk to dozens of food grade products including dairy products, eggs, juices, water, sweeteners, vegetable and soy oils, yeast, water, liquid smoke, and enzymes. We haul to all 48 states and Canada and have trucks in Florida, New Jersey, and California weekly. We have gone from traveling approximately 19,000 miles a year to over 22 million miles a year. With continued growth, in 2012 our company added a small Midwest terminal in Cedar Rapids, IA. It has 2 full time mechanics and 2 dispatchers as of 2017.


When we started in 1958 our routes averaged 50 miles a day and consisted of 90 cans of milk from 20 different farms.

With so much to look forward to in the future, we’d love for you to take a step back and look at our past.
