120 Years of moving business forward

Murphy’s rich and trusted history has built the foundation of our warehousing and logistics services and solutions. In 1904, Muphy started as a drayage business in St. Paul, Minnesota. Founder Edward L. Murphy, Sr. had purchased two horses and a wagon from his brother, Jack. Gradually, he converted his operations from horses to trucks, and his business was expanded into the Midwest and the rest of North America. Today, Murphy now operates 15 facilities with a total of 4.2 million square feet and more than 300 employees in Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri. For 120 years, we have proudly operated under five generations of Murphy family leadership, continuously investing in our infrastructure, people, materials, and customers to drive long-term success.
