Expansion of the Cedar Valley freight company meant more and bigger buildings, more employees and more customers.  More trucks and more drivers were added every year since the company’s founding and now there are more than 150 Gray Transportation trucks on the road with more than 175 total employees. Gray Transportation’s delivers freight to all 48 states. Gray Transportation  utilizes their own trucking assets along with their regional transportation partners to meet the freight needs of their customers.

Hawkeye Logistics was founded by owner LeRoy Gray as a division of Gray Transportation  in1984.  Like Gray Transportation, Hawkeye Logistics provides transportation of goods in temperature-controlled and dry van trailers.

As the company has grown over the years, LeRoy has brought in family members to help manage the freight trucking company. LeRoy’s son, Darrin, is the President of Gray Transportation, and LeRoy’s daughter Margo helps Darrin with claims and overall Office Manager.

The goal of Gray Transportation and Hawkeye Logistics is now and has always been to build and maintain long-term relationships that our customers and freight carriers can depend on.
