In 2002 the Owners of Bailey’s Moving and Storage formed Legacy Transportation Systems as a dry freight and lift gate addition to their thriving moving and storage business. They chose to build the company by partnering with owner operators, as they had been doing in the moving & storage business. That practice has continued and today Legacy partners with over 30 owner operators.
Located in North Salt Lake Utah, Legacy has focused on high paying lift gate and other freight originating in the Salt Lake City area. Over the years Legacy has also established lanes originating outside Salt Lake City, making the Company a national carrier licensed to operate in all 48 continental states. Legacy pays a percentage of the line haul revenue to the owner operators, so both they and Legacy benefit from the high paying freight.
Legacy has a close relationship with Bailey’s but has always maintained its independence, leading to the unique opportunity for Legacy to provide a small company and family culture, but provide the financial stability and perks of a large company. Owner operators are considered part of the Legacy family and when they are in town they are included in the Friday lunches, fly fishing trips, hockey games, and other Legacy family activities.
Having more freight than capacity Legacy is currently in a growth mode and is looking to partner with additional owner operators who have Legacy’s common values, work ethic, and desire to succeed.
