Welcome to National Transportation Services, Inc.

In 1896, Daimler Motors created the world’s first heavy-haul ‘Semi’ truck.

The first truck in the world looked like a cart with an engine and without a drawbar. The engine, called “Phoenix”, was a four-horsepower-strong two-cylinder engine located at the rear. Gottlieb Daimler linked it to the rear axle by means of a belt.

There were two helical springs to protect the engine, which was sensitive to vibrations. The vehicle rolled on hard iron wheels. Gottlieb Daimler steered the leaf-sprung front axle by means of a chain. The driver sat up front on the driving seat as with a carriage.

The fuel consumption was approximately six liters of petrol per 100 kilometers (approximately 1.6 gallons per 62 miles)

Boy, have things changed since then!! Now, trucking has become the leading method used to deliver the goods that businesses and the general public need to operate efficiently and live comfortably.
