In 1951, Freightliner signed an agreement with the White Motor Co. to sell Freightliner trucks through White Dealerships. The trucks became White-Freightliner, gaining momentum through the 1950s and exploding in sales through the 1960s. As you look at the photos on the pages of this book, you will see just a few of the many different customers and hauling jobs they did in the peak of their popularity. Small, medium or large hauling jobs, White-Freightliners fit right in to the needs of the trucking industry.
