What do you think of when you hear something described as exceptional? 

To us, this descriptor indicates a level of greatness that sets a person, place, or thing apart from the rest of the pack. We also believe that this level of greatness is only achieved through a high degree of commitment, effort, and perseverance. 

One such example of exceptionality is the legend of Secretariat, arguably the greatest racehorse of all time, who is remembered today for his iconic career that broke several records over the span of 16-months.

His most historic accomplishment was his 1973 performance in the third Triple Crown race at Belmont Stakes. During this race, he propelled past his closest competitor by an incredible 31 lengths, making this one of the most stunning races of all time. 

Nicknamed “Big Red” for his reddish-brown color, Secretariat served to inspire the Stryder Horse that we use as our iconic logo. 


Because as a company, we are relentlessly driven by our passion to be exceptional. 

Secretariat’s Triple Crown race is our everyday, as we strive to deliver the best possible performance to our audience of loyal customers. 

Our commitment to the success of our operation is what allows us to deliver exceptional results, including our industry leading 99.9% on-time delivery standard. 

Similar to Secretariat, we refuse to back down from a challenge, we persevere in the face of adversity, and we dedicate ourselves to providing the best possible outcome even when the odds are against us. 

Since 1989, Western North America has been our race track, and we’re proud to say we’ve made some exceptional laps. 

We’ve grown from six trucks, one warehouse, and a handful of employees to six-hundred trucks, a dozen facilities with over 1-million square feet of Food Grade Certified warehouse space, and over 500 employees. 

Our service offerings have expanded vastly since day one to now include all elements of the supply chain to provide our customers with a consolidated service offering to ensure we’re a one-stop-shop operation. 

Everything we do, we do to be the best so we can deliver the best. 

So the next time you see a Stryder truck driving alongside you, know that we’re not just transporting, we’re performing, and we’ll settle for nothing less than exceptional.
