About Us

Carstensen and Sons Trucking, Inc. was co-founded in 1981 by Al & Gail Carstensen and incorporated in 1983.Al & Gail quit their corporate jobs to start a trucking company hauling cement to Gail’s father in Granite Falls, MN. Starting with one tractor trailer, Al began delivering cement. Al & Gail raised six children, four boys and two girls. The boys started working at a young age washing tractors, greasing and changing oil.  Two of their sons went to school for Diesel Mechanics.   Today Matt is the General Manager and we’ve grown to 23 trucks, 38 trailers, 4 PIG storage units.  We added our 1st Owner Operator in 2018 and we now have 7. Al drives truck and does mechanic work, and Gail continues to help in the office as needed. As we continue to grow we have also added some other services. In September of 2016 we acquired our brokerage authority which allows us to hire other carriers to help when we have more going on than what just our fleet can handle. We have started to do outside mechanic work in our shop including tire alignments and diesel engine cleaning. We haul dry bulk commodities including powder cement, flash, lime, sand, salt and urea using pneumatic trailers in the states highlighted below.
