Swift Transportation Company is celebrating its 50th year in business in 2016. The company recently celebrated its anniversary at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona where Swift is located.

Swift is ranked third on “Commercial Carrier Journal’s” Top 250 list.

At the celebration, the company released two new designs, both featuring the American flag, which will be added to a number of their fleet’s trucks and trailers. U.S. Sen John McCain announced via video that an American flag would be flown over the U.S. Capitol building in honor of Swift’s founder Jerry Moyes and the company, according to a news release.

“I’m proud to say that we have nearly 18,000 employees who believe that working hard and constantly proving we deserve our customers’ trust will allow us to achieve any goals we put in place,” Moyes said.
