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 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, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped shape the transportation industry as we know it. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.
