OVER 25 YEARS OF DEDICATED SERVICE

EXCELLENCE – INTEGRITY – INNOVATION

For over 25 years we have set the standard in logistics by having dedicated, hardworking and committed employees servicing the Chicagoland area trucking needs.  We are grateful for our customers who have chosen to GO with us over the years.  We truly appreciate your dedication  and commitment!  Let’s Go!

MISSION

Employee driven innovative logistics solutions partnering with our customers, carriers and suppliers with integrity, honesty and safety.

HISTORY

For over 25 years Sunset Logistics LLC has been GOing!

It started when Don J. Mueller drove for his grandfather and father.  He decided to save up for a truck of his own and managed to purchase a Ford ten wheeler at the age of 24.  In the hopes of starting his own company, he purchased two trucks in September of 1991. 

The sun was starting to set and so began…Sunset Cartage Inc.

In 2002 he expanded his fleet buying Lyman Martin Trucking who had been in business since 1923.  He did this with the anticipation of expanding his clientele into three other counties, giving Sunset Cartage Inc. the ability to work in all surrounding counties of the Chicagoland area.  In 2005, Waspi trucking companies assets were purchased, including a truck terminal. This also expanded the company in purchasing material and warehousing which established Sunset Logistics, LLC the same year.

With the 2009 economy looking dim, the company began to look for other opportunities to thrive in the market.  The company started hauling transfer loads for the waste industry. 

To go further, expand and better serve the customers needs, in 2011 a limestone quarry was purchased.  This lead to purchasing a sand and gravel pit and two other quarries. 

We have been able to GO because of our extraordinary staff and committed customers over the past 25 years.  The sun sets to rise again…LET’S GO!
