About Us

Formed in 1996, Truk-King has become a trusted cross-border freight carrier in North America through its dedicated team, quality operation and loyal customers. We take pride in "doing the right thing always".

Richard Bacon, the owner and President of Truk-King, has always been the type of entrepreneur to do things differently than the industry. In 2017, he decided to make a game changing decision by paying his drivers by the hour and switching from diesel to compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks. Starting in January 2018, Truk-King purchased 7 CNG trucks and after collecting the truck maintenance and fuel cost data during the first six months, Richard purchased an additional 5 CNG trucks. By the end of 2019, Truk-King will be transitioning 100% of its fleet from diesel to CNG.

I feel the future should be not what the industry tells me, but the future needs to be the one that I’m going to set for my company – we are being leaders in the industry.

Richard Bacon, President
