- Unfortunately, we lost our dedicated founder in 2016
Progression to who we are today
Troy Eggers, President and owner, believes that Nationwide is only as good as the people that it employs, the customers that it serves, and the vendors that we work with. We have had very little turnover in our history. We believe in taking good care of people. If we do, they take good care of us!. We have been fortunate to have such dedicated employees! Nationwide’s employees have an incredible work ethic. We service the entire continent of North America so we are up early and we stay late to service both coasts and everyone in between. We are committed to integrity, honesty, and good old fashioned hard work!
President & Owner
Troy serves as the Owner, President, and General Manager of Nationwide. He oversees all aspects of company business including Sales, Operations, Marketing, IT, A/P, A/R, CFO. Troy began at Nationwide in 1988. Like Bernie, trucking is all he ever knew! Troy’s main challenge in the early days was to bring Nationwide up to date in terms of modern technology. Nationwide, like most small family-owned businesses in the 80’s, did everything by hand in the early days. It was clear that technology needed to be harnessed to maximize our efficiency for our customer and carrier bases. Today, our processes have been streamlined! Data entry happens once. Automation then takes over. We are streamlined. We are efficient. We are transparent to customers and carriers. Troy loves the challenge of small business! His goal is to create value for trucking companies and trailer manufacturers throughout North America. He strives to build a better company daily by challenging the team to be better in terms of communication, integrity, and honesty. His direct number is 720.940.7651 or email is below.

Part-time family members
Many family members are also very important and worth mentioning. Seasonal work, data entry, etc must be done. Troy’s kids, Luke, Taylor, Emilie as well as his sister, Kamala, have and are involved on a regular basis to assist with these needs.
Nationwide knows how critical and time-sensitive the trailer movement process needs to be! Nationwide also knows how vital trailer pool optimization is for trucking companies! We have been in business for over 35 years. Our employees have extensive knowledge of the inner workings of the industry. We are always learning! Success depends on us expanding our knowledge. Expanding our capacity to move trailers safely and efficiently. We are harnessing technology to become smarter!
Nationwide believes in harnessing technology. It is a part of who we are. We have spent the last several years developing a cloud-based tracking system and database. This technology gives us the ability to increase our capacity. It is also our goal to become transparent to the customers that we serve and the trucking companies that we supply trailers too.
As mentioned above, Nationwide is only as good as the customers that it serves and the trucking companies that pull trailers for us. We have spent 35 years forging relationships with all of our customers and our vendors. It is our goal to meet every one of them face to face! In the last few years, we have increased our travel budget with the goal of putting a face with a name. It has been so good to finally meet in person those that we have dealt with for years! We value people! We are proud members of the Truckload Carrier Association and the National Trailer Dealers Association. We will continue to be faithful to our trusted contacts. We will consistently be seeking out new Relationships in an effort to serve as many people as we can.
