P & P Carriers

P&P Carriers, L.L.C., D.B.A. Performance Diesel Inc. is a family-owned, family-operated trucking company. We are located on the original Poad farmstead in the beautiful rolling hills of southwest Wisconsin. Today we manage our farm, mechanic shop and trucking business literally from our back door.

Gordon Poad Sr. founded P&P in 1976. A grain farmer, he started with a straight truck and pup trailer. Grain was hauled from the farm field to the driers and onto the grain terminals in the surrounding area. Word spread and by the following harvest two more trucks and trailers were added to meet the new demand. Gordon Jr joined his dad and began hauling for many of the area farms and feed mills. In the mid 1980’s farm markets turned sour. As a result, business had to change. Grain hauling took a back seat to over the road hauling. In 10 short years the business evolved. Grain trailers were replaced with reefers and we began to focus on refrigerated/frozen food commodities.

In 2009 Gordy Sr retired. Gordy Jr and wife Sherry own and operate the business as P&P Carriers, L.L.C. along with GJ’s Service LLC, the onsite mechanic shop.

The Fleet

The trailers are equipped with bulkheads to accommodate both refrigerated and frozen products on the same load. You should expect your products to arrive in good condition and on schedule. Need something on short notice? No problem! We are available 24/7. We believe communication should be straight forward, and frequent. Written price quotes and contract confirmations via email or fax. Equipment is serviced regularly in our shop to ensure great service.
