Barry Bloedel established America Midwest in New Ulm, Minnesota. America Midwest remains a family-owned and operated business, with Garland Bloedel at the helm. When we first started, we had a small office and three employees. Today, we have our own terminal and shop near Courtland, Minnesota, and a state-of-the-art office. We have a fleet of 95 tractors and 140 refrigerated trailers. The company is growing and looking for responsible drivers.
