Our History

Our History

Established and founded by Wayne Lanter, " Lanter" has been a recognized name in the transportation industry since the early '70s.

Lanter's core competency still remains the same: LTL Distribution for temperature sensitive deliveries.

On April 1, 2012 Lanter Distributing separated away from its previous owner and is now a family owned and operated company again. Bill Behrmann and sons, Eric, Ryan, Adam and Kyle purchased the assets and customer base of the Madison, IL based company from OHL. The assets included the tractor-trailers, material handling equipment, building leases and the company name.

Lanter Distributing specializes in warehousing and distributing temperature sensitive goods to retail and wholesale customers. Our customers and the industries serviced include food, beverage, snacks, confectionery, meat and seafood, pharmaceutical, health and beauty, also a variety of apparel and general merchandise items. Lanter provides several options for temperature sensitive deliveries including straight LTL from pickup to delivery, consolidated LTL and pool distribution.
