James, the son of a river pilot, had been successful operating a large retail tire business and later a private inter-city bus company in Portland. Believing that he could find more profits moving freight instead of people, he sold his previous businesses and acquired several local freight companies, and on April 1, 1929, combined them to form '''Consolidated Truck Lines'''. Unlike most trucking concerns of the day, CF began as a company rooted in the western United States, and expanded east.
