About Us - Our History

In 1955 Bill and Bob Gotwals started in the trucking business with one truck. Since that time, the family owned and operated business has grown to include Brook Ledge Inc. and XpressWay, our van freight division. (XpressWay hauls general commodity truck load freight and operates within a 250 mile radius of Reading, PA.) Brook Ledge Inc. is now one of the largest Horse Transportation companies in North America. In addition to operating out of its home office in Oley, PA, Brook Ledge Inc. maintains terminals on our small farms in Lexington, KY and Ocala, FL.  There are 3 generations currently working at Brook Ledge and Xpressway which include (along with Bill and Bob) Brad Gotwals, Joan Gotwals Yoder, Brent Gotwals, Chris Gotwals, Will Gotwals, Andrea Gotwals Boone and Summer Gotwals.  Brook Ledge has gained the respect of horsemen and competitors alike.  The Gotwals family is dedicated to the business and those who make it possible from employees to customers.
