Trucking is an integral part of the local agricultural industry and has been since Antonini Fruit Express inception in 1926.

Antonini Fruit Express has a long history of moving peaches and tomatoes for canning, and today the company hauls about 10 percent of California's tomato crop.

“The grower is the starting point, with the crops growing in the field. The processor is the end point, and the trucker is in the middle.” Joe Antonini, President 

And that middle part needs to move fast, especially when dealing with time-sensitive products like peaches and tomatoes.

Company founder Virgilio “Vic” Antonini emigrated from Italy before coming to Stockton and buying a farm. Then he started Antonini Fruit Express in 1926.He passed on the business to his sons, Louis, Jack and Rudy.

Joe Antonini and his sister Karen Wuellner are Rudy’s children and the co-owners of the enterprise.  The company has a long history of moving peaches and tomatoes for canning.
