Approximately 80% of our freight consists of cheese products.  We haul from many of the local cheese factories in Eastern Wisconsin to Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Alabama.

Filippo & Sons, Inc. had its start in October of 1966.  At that time, we were know as Filippo's Pizza Service.  Philip J. Coppersmith Founded the company.  Filippo is the Italian name for Philip.  Philip started by servicing pizzerias and Italian restaurants in Wisconsin with two vans.

In 1970, Philip stopped servicing pizzerias and purchased a tractor and reefer trailer.  He then went to various cheese factories in the area and introduced them to food distributors in the Chicago area getting the freight hauling in return.  The business expanded it's service areas and fleet grew to 14 tractors, 10 Reefer Trailers and 2 Tanker Trailers. In December, 1981, the business was incorporated as Filippo & Sons, Inc.  Philip retired May 1, 1994.
