Chelsea Pottle Demmons

AND HER FAMILY

Company leader
Bangor, Maine
3rd Generation and counting

  • GENERATIONS

    Pottle’s was founded in 1962 by my grandfather, Clifton Pottle. In 1988, my father, Barry, who was a truck driver, purchased Pottle’s. The company has grown from 11 trucks to over 160 trucks with more than 600 trailers and we have two terminals: our home terminal in Bangor, Maine and a second terminal located in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Pottle’s now has third-generation family members, my brother Matt and I, in leadership positions. We both have young children, so there is a real possibility of a 4th generation!

  • WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TRUCKING?

    I chose to build a career in trucking for many reasons, but mostly because I knew it would provide for my family just as it did for me growing up. The schedules are flexible, and there is always opportunity. I knew I wouldn’t be able to enjoy any other career as much as I do with trucking.

  • WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT TRUCKING?

    Working in the family business is hard work, but it’s also very rewarding. I love the people that make up the trucking industry. It’s an inspiring group of co-workers and other trucking enthusiasts who love the industry and work tirelessly to transport all of the goods we take for granted.

  • THE ROAD AHEAD

    When you have the right people in place doing their job exceptionally and professionally day in and day out in an ever-changing industry, there are no limits to our success. The passion of the people in the trucking industry is remarkable.
