When we began construction on this new Chicagoland facility, we decided upon the theme “Here for the Long Haul.” Even though we had leased a site in Joliet for over 20 Years, this new service center represents our investment in the community. “We’re really putting down roots,” says manager Kyle Lukwinski, “This is a strategic location because this area serves as the crossroads for all trucking in North America.”
This is a new $11 million flagship service center in Channahon, Illinois. The 17,730-square-foot facility named “Highway Transport Chicago” is located on nearly 23 acres and doubles the size of our previous location.
The new service center includes a tank wash and maintenance shop services. It is one of 20+ Highway Transport Service Centers in the United States, serving 49 states and Canada.
Highway Transport currently is hiring for positions based at the Chicago Service Center, including drivers, mechanics, tank wash positions and office staff. The new site will employ on-site team members and professional chemical tanker truck drivers and is expected to add approximately 70 new employees, in the coming years, to nearby Channahon, Illinois.
“Our new chemical tanker facility marks our commitment to both the greater Chicago area and to our customers and team members across the U.S.,” Highway Transport President and CFO Marshall Franklin says. “With the expanded Chicago service center, we are better positioned to serve many chemical companies in Illinois, the Midwest and beyond.

In the days leading up to our Chicago Open House & Ribbon Cutting ceremony, the Highway team participated in community outreach projects at Ronald McDonald House and The Bridge Teen Center. Connecting with every local community is an important component of Highway Transport’s message “Our Promise. Delivered.”
Our internal outreach initiative is titled Highway Helping Hands. Our team enjoys hands-on community outreach. In Chicagoland, we are truly Here for the Long Haul and we devote ourselves to that commitment, whether it is via community outreach or spending time with local first responders.
