A History of Innovation

Freightliner Trucks was founded on innovation and customer satisfaction. Leland James,founded the Corporation in 1942. Once the president of another trucking company, his idea of building truck components with lightweight aluminum instead of traditional steel met with initial resistance and skepticism. So James hired a team of engineers and built the first Freightliner truck.

Over seven decades later, truck owners and operators have relied on our iconic, efficient, innovative products.
