Ruan held a ceremonial groundbreaking on Monday for its new Ankeny operating center, which is scheduled to be completed in September 2020. The center at 2005 S.E. Corporate Woods Drive will serve as Ruan’s flagship operation, providing office space for team members currently located at an operation on Park Avenue in Des Moines. Ruan has partnered with Graham Construction to build the project. Nearly 80 drivers will operate approximately 60 trucks from the Ankeny center. The space will offer conference and training rooms for new team members and continued education efforts. The yard will have space for in-truck driver training. A state-of-the-art maintenance shop with three service bays and several skilled technicians will service approximately 100 trucks, including a few from other Iowa operations. The facility will also have a wash bay for tractors and trailers. The Des Moines-based transportation and logistics company has more than 300 operations across the country, employing 6,000 team members.
