He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After WWII, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry as we know it. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires.
