Standing up for what you believe in can cause your knees to click together with quakes – it’s not without a little anxiety that Nussbaum has declared their faith. Hear Nussbaum’s CEO, Brent Nussbaum, retell the story of how using trucking as a platform for faith began.

It’s Always Been Faith & Family

Celebrating Faith & Family has been the core of Nussbaum Transportation since its beginning in 1945 with Alden Nussbaum, Brent’s father. One man, one truck, and 7 kids – he started this business on faith to support his family.
