Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After WWII, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped build today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from drive to trailer tires.
