Whitewood Transport

Larry Spiekermeier, “Sneaky”, has been leased to Whitewood Transport for 16 years.  During his career with this trucking company, he has truly been as asset, friend, and mentor to all at Whitewood Transport.  His knowledge of equipment and how to load and transport it has been invaluable to Whitewood, but his demeanor and good heart has outshined even his professional skills.  There is rarely a time that Larry cannot assist Whitewood, and the trucking industry as a whole, with his knowledge and experience, especially when it comes to specialty oversize and overweight commodities.

Sneaky drives a 2000 Western Star and pulls a 2013 Trail King 10 axle lowboy.  His driving skills and friendly personality attribute to his high level of professionalism on the road and in the office.  Larry was awarded “Motor Carriers of Montana Driver of the Year” in 2009.  In the same year, he joined the “1 Million Mile Club” at Whitewood Transport; one of only eight drivers that have received this award.  Having a positive attitude, great work ethic, and treating people with respect make him a superior driver to work with.

Larry and his wife, Mary Ann, have three grown children; Mandy, Ryan, and Cody.  They reside in a beautiful home overlooking the river in Plains, MT.  They enjoy working in their yard and admiring the wild turkeys, deer, and black bear that frequently visit them.

Whitewood Transport is grateful to have an Owner Operator with as much knowledge and experience as Sneaky.
