About Us

Company History

Silk Road Transport was incorporated in 1983 as a motor carrier designed to transport specialized and extraordinary cargo. The founders of Silk Road have extensive experience in the mass transit industry, which contributed to the Company's servicing the transportation needs of mass transit as well as other unique industries.

Corporate Name Origin

The name Silk Road Transport is derived from the ancient network of trade and communication routes linking Europe, the Middle East, and China - known collectively as the "Silk Roads." Trade in silk from China gave the Silk Roads their name. The western terminus of the routes was Constantinople Turkey (current day Istanbul). The eastern terminus was Xi'an, China (the ancient capital of China). The hazardous and physically tortuous Silk Roads were conduits for the dissemination of ideas, the interaction of societies, and for commerce.
