Leavitt’s Freight Service was founded in 1958 by brothers Doug, Dean and Dewey Leavitt. The company’s fleet of 45-to-48-foot trailers is equipped to handle long loads such as utility poles, which can range from 25- to 140-feet in length. For extremely long loads Leavitt’s uses ‘floating’ trailers, some outfitted with a steerable trailer. More conventional loads include trusses and engineered wood products for construction projects, plus steel decking. The company moved much of the steel decking for the Amazon buildings in the Seattle area.
