Ruan Transportation Management Systems is a family-owned transportation management company that provides dedicated contract carriage, value-added warehousing and integrated supply chain solutions for hundreds of customers at more than 300 locations. They provide a full suite of services including mode selection, carrier management, network optimization and certified brokerage services.
Ruan was founded in 1932 on the depression era principles of integrity, hard work, innovation and quality customer service. The company is a good employer that pays well, rewards its drivers with ongoing safety training, and offers a great work/life balance. But like any trucking company, they make mistakes. And when those mistakes result in injury or death to another person, it is important that the victims have an experienced and knowledgeable truck accident attorney to represent them.
A few years ago, a family sued Ruan Transportation after the trucking company’s driver accidentally ran over them while they were stopped to check a tire. The woman and two minors suffered sprains and strains of the neck, upper and lower back, and right arm. The family received a $7 million settlement from the Iowa-based company.
Ruan also funds ongoing research at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s MS Clinic in Chicago, and sponsors the Ruan Neuroscience Center at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines. In addition to that, they are involved in community outreach by funding the ABC Warehouse. Located on the corner of 2nd and Walnut, the ABC Warehouse is one of the largest private warehouses in the region, offering a variety of warehouse logistics and distribution solutions.
