Denton Cartage – Since 1972

Family Business Values – Delivering a Big Difference

Trucking_chicagoWhere others saw problems, Lowell Sr. saw opportunity

In 1972, Lowell Denton Sr. founded Denton Cartage Company with one truck and big plans – to provide quality service and solve the inevitable freight problems that come up in the course of moving goods and machinery around the United States. Over the last five decades, trucking problems have changed but Lowell Denton Sr.’s problem-solving philosophy has a proven track record: take care of the problems, take care of the customer.


Denton’s leadership includes three generations of family as well as other experienced experts in transportation, all with a commitment to excellence.  This outstanding combination of talent has merited Denton to maintain its reputation as the Midwest leader in import and export container services, expedited service, FTL service and moving oversize and heavy loads.  Utilizing three geographically convenient and secure locations in the metro Chicago area – and our close proximity to key rail and truck transportation hubs – Denton covers Chicagoland, the Midwest, and the entire United States like no other carrier.


Denton Cartage Company is a full service intermodal carrier serving the continental United States. You can count on us to provide you with the right vehicle and experienced personnel to meet your individual needs saving you time, money and hassles. Lowell, Lowell Sr. and Kathy
