    Ahh the good old days before it was all Universal. Look at Pro Logistics on the door, fun in the sun. That's early and middle 2000s auto parts hauling.

    I went through my documentation and I think that Texas_hwy_287 has the winner here. I didn't find a today LTL operating carrier older than OAK HARBOR. the closer ones date back from the early 20's.
