About Romar

Romar company history

Romar is an asset-based family owned and operated company. Romar was founded in 1965 by Robert L Marden, and was orginally known as Trailer Train, Inc — a pioneering force in the early piggyback days. The expansion of Romar Terminal and Warehouse Company and Romar Trucking Company in Chicago followed soon after. In 1972, Romar expanded into New England with warehousing the purchase of M.H. Hillary Trucking Company. In 1976, Romar opened its Portland, Or location with warehousing and trucking. Since then we have opened numerous other other locations and have steadily increased our presence in the transportation industry. In 1991, Romar consolidated all of its companies under one name to form Romar Transportation Systems, Inc.
