Ryder Acquires Midwest Warehouse Distribution System and its Family of Companies. Learn More

Midwest Warehouse established Bedford Motor Service in 1984 to meet the transportation needs of our customers. Since that time, our company-owned fleet has grown to more than 90 modern power units. Unlike other Illinois freight companies, we offer the best in quality, expertise, and freight management with timely shipments, strategic positioning and excellence in service.

Bedford is a local carrier that services Illinois and its neighboring states on a daily basis, delivering both LTL and truckload shipments. All trucks are radio dispatched and our straight trucks are equipped with lift gates. To increase productivity and efficiency, and further enhance our customer service capabilities, all trucks have been equipped with global positioning capability.

Bedford Motor Service’s intrastate authority covers the entire state of Illinois, and our interstate authority includes 48 states as a common or contract carrier.
