Volk Transfer is a 3rd generation, family-owned transportation, logistics, and warehousing business, that has grown exponentially in recent years. Frank Volk started Volk Transfer in 1948 with only one tractor, and soon after that, built his first facility. In 1974, Richard “Rick” Volk became President and continued to run the business until he passed away at a young age in March 1993. Carol Volk, wife of late Rick, took over the business in 1993, until 1997 when current owner and President/CEO, Troy Volk took over and continues to own and operate Volk Transfer today. Over the last 75 years, Volk transfer has resided at three different addresses, and since 2011, is located at 2205 7th Avenue, Mankato. The new space features a large warehouse with over 30,000 square feet, with a 20,000 square foot addition in 2012, built to accommodate their solid customer base and storage/shipping needs. In 2014 Volk added a 3rd Party Fulfillment (3PL) Division to provide a range of distribution, storage, transportation, and fulfillment needs to customers both locally and nationally. As it stands today, Volk operates regionally and nationally with over 135 pieces of equipment, 3 offsite warehouse facilities, and seven different divisions: Truckload, Less Than Truckload (LTL), Over the Road (OTR), Expedited Services, Refrigeration, Freight Brokerage, and Warehouse/Storage. In addition to the 3 offsite warehouses, Volk recently completed their North Mankato Warehouse Expansion project, which gives them an additional 84,000 square feet to the existing 60,000 square feet at that facility.
