Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. In the years after World War II, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped shape the transportation industry we have today. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires.
