My father Joseph Calore established the trucking company, Calore Freight System, in Rhode Island in 1947. He began with the purchase of his first truck, an open back Ford. He used it for some of the worst jobs and deliveries to get his business off the ground. The jobs he accepted included the delivery of manure and meat. He created the first refrigerated meat packing truck in Rhode Island using dry ice and a fan. This led to a demand for his trucking and opened up his business for expansion. The railroad, at that time, was having difficulty loading and unloading containers on the trains for delivery. My father, who has a knack for solving problems, created a solution by utilizing the wine press from his grandfather, which evolved into a system known as the piggyback. It is widely used today in the railroad business. As his business grew, he had his hand in many forms of transportation and rigging in this country.
