Our Story

FLI Bldg sign

Frontier Leasing Inc.’s story proudly begins 40 years ago, when we were incorporated in 1976.  First, we began operating to provide private carriage. Within the first two years, Frontier applied for and was granted a Common Carrier authority, and in 1986, the company took on additional stock holders.  We focused on the flatbed market and acquired brokerage authority. Then we sought and were granted Contract Carrier authority in 1989, and shortly thereafter, the company started a dry van division. Frontier Leasing Inc. has been servicing a large majority of our customers for well over a decade.  Our largest shippers have been working with us for over 35 years.

Frontier Today

After seventeen years in the same location, Frontier moved in 2004 to a much larger, more modern facility.  The space has an updated operating system, new communication systems, and plenty of room for growth.   Our goal was to better serve our customers and drivers as well as provide a great environment for our employees.

Frontier Leasing, Inc. (FLI) had a thirty-five year business partnership with Glen’s Diesel Inc. (GDI), a fully equipped and staffed maintenance facility that is located on the same property as our terminal in Joplin, MO.

In July of 2019, Frontier’s owner acquired this business to place all maintenance and repair under FLI’s control and prepare Frontier for growth and development. Frontier kept the staff and management of Glen’s Diesel for continuity of their experience and knowledge as well as their expertise in specing new equipment.

Frontier’s motto, “Service is Our Salesman,” represents our commitment to fulfilling our customers’ hauling-supply and delivery needs.  We are also focused on organized coordination and delivery for our carrier clients and committed to our drivers’ safety and job satisfaction. We strive for excellence in our hauling services and safety.  Offering better and more efficient solutions to supply chain management issues is our goal.
