About CKR Transport, Ltd.

CKR Transport, Ltd. was founded in 1977 by Ken & Helen Clark in Elmhurst, IL. CKR is a truckload freight carrier, an interstate common and contract carrier, as well as freight broker. We are also an intrastate carrier and broker in Illinois. Ken served as our President until his passing away in 1995. Helen was our President from then until she passed away in October of 2011. Her son Howard Schermerhorn then became our 3rd President.

The trucking industry has changed dramatically over the last three decades.

We credit our success and longevity to being able to change with the times and needs of our customers as well as our own drivers and brokerage carrier partners. Howard personally heads up our operations, sales, and customer service areas as well as overseeing Ilona and our dispatch department. Howard's wife Grace handles our safety and road & fuel. Office manager Cindy covers our accounting and other areas departments with the help of Helen in billing. We are a family run corporation that pays close attention to detail. We are currently looking to add to both our customer base as well as our carrier partner list.
