The Daniels Linseed Co was founded in 1902 in Minneapolis, MN
and re-named Archer Daniels Midland Company in 1923. Today, ADM is
one of the largest agricultural processor and food ingredient providers in the world. We have been hauling freight for ADM for many years
but in 2017 we saw a 30% increase in the number of orders they are
booking with Marvin Keller. This growth is because of the excellent service and on-time delivery we provide for them. We primarily haul outbound freight from the Decatur, IL facility and deliver to 36 different states including Georgia, North Carolina, Michigan, Iowa, Tennessee, and Texas.
The products are containers of cooking oil, pan sprays, and shortening–made from corn, sunflower seeds, canola, or peanuts. Some other products are Lysine, Threonine, and Arcon, which are animal feed
ingredients, as well as Sorbitol Crystalline which is used in gum and “chewy” foods. The ADM plant is the largest employer in Decatur and has over 4000 employees. We are proud to be a top carrier for them
and hope to continue to see growth and new opportunities.
