About Us

Customer Truck Service was founded in 1958 by Warren & Hazel Erbe, Clay & Mildred Wingfield and Chuck McPherson, who built the company servicing primarily the ready mix industry in Humboldt and Del Norte County. After 20 years in the business the ownership sold the company to long time employee/driver Nyle Henderson, who continued operating the company until 2001. Now after building his fleet to 17 trucks and 50 trailers and with a solid customer base Nyle decided it was time to retire himself. In 2001 the company changed hands once again by selling to another long term employee/driver named Steve Shamp, who remains President of the company today. Then a short time later in 2004, Steve and one of his loyal customers had built a strong trusting relationship and decided it would be wise to join forces, this is when Eureka Ready-Mix owned by the McLaughlin family joined together with Customer Truck Service. At this time the two companies formed a holding company under the name of Lodestone Pacific. Ten years later in 2014 Customer Truck Service/Eureka Ready-Mix was presented with an opportunity to expand the transportation side of their business. When the founder and longtime established owner of Eureka Truck Lines approached offering up the sale of his company. We were very interested in the idea of pursuing this well managed company. After several months of negotiations, Lodestone then became the parent company of now three organizations, Customer Truck Service, Eureka Ready-Mix, and now Eureka Truck Lines. With the Eureka Truck Lines acquisition, the company  now employs 53 employees and operates 42 semi-trucks and 93 various types of trailers servicing a variety of loyal customers. Located just off highway 101 in Alton, California, Customer Truck Service/Eureka Truck Lines is now one of the leading transportation providers on the north coast serving California, Oregon and Washington.
