Sisbro History

About Sisbro - Quincy, IL

Our story began in the late 1950s when our founder's father G. H. Bemis returned home from the Army and started an LTL business with one truck and a trailer. G. H.’s sister Carol handled the phones and other office duties while G. H. peddled freight.

Part of his route was Peoria, Illinois, where he met his future wife Bev. They had three children, Brenda, Glenn, and Tim. In the 1980s, deregulation in transportation opened up opportunities in the truckload sector. As the family sat around their kitchen table, they made the decision to get into the truckload business with a name that reflected their family values: Sisbro, a combination of sister and brother. The business grew and in 1990, Sisbro became part of an organization that allowed us to grow our customer base and take advantage of new technology… but we kept the name Sisbro … maintaining our identity as a family oriented business.
