Panella Trucking, LLC actually started out as Ralph Panella Trucking in 1934. Ralph Panella began with a 1934 two-ton Chevy flatbed pulling a flatbed trailer. In 1955, Bob Panella joined his father in the family business, and the company has grown consistently ever since.
Our corporate office is located in Stockton, California, where it features as a hub to where the majority of the companiesí business is performed. Our main facility is very much a self-sufficient entity that includes a large repair and maintenance shop, a large warehouse that features a trailer manufacturing facility, a fiber-glass and body workshop, a sandblast facility, steam wash facility, large paint booth, fuel island, as well as a large tomato inspection station. Having these facilities allows us to do virtually all our own maintenance, body, paint, and repair work. In addition, we are able to fabricate trailers, tanks, and other equipment as needed.
Panella Trucking, LLC has grown to become one of the largest specialized agricultural trucking firms in the country and employs several hundred people during our busiest seasons hauling a variety of agricultural products.
