From the time he was a small boy Arlo Lott dreamed of driving a truck. Born on a farm in Eastern Idaho, he was the 11th in a family of 12. He acquired a social security card at age 5 when his brother taught him to drive tractor for the hay harvest. He gained an education in a small country school and was married during his high school years. Working before and after school loading hay trucks, he dreamed of one day owning a truck of his own.
In 1971, with a used truck,and a lot of determination he set that dream into motion.
And today the company has far exceeded any of his expectations. His goal was to build a company with a heart. One that cared about customers and employees alike. Where his word was as good as a contract; where employees became part of a growing family. It has been a key to success.
After 30 years under his direction, Arlo G Lott Trucking has now passed to the 2nd generation, to his children who grew up in the trucking business. Arlo has now gone full circle. From a farm boy who dreamed of owning a truck he now has gone back to the farm.
Today, under the leadership of Andrew Lott and Michelle Miller the company continues to grow with a dedication to the people they serve.
Arlo’s philosophy of treating his employees as part of the family is being carried on today with the second generation, Andy Lott and Michelle Miller, handling the daily operations. Arlo G. Lott Trucking Inc.’s success has come through the hiring of experienced and dedicated staff and drivers.
