How it All Started

It began in 1971

HP Distribution, LLC is the evolution of over 50 years of transportation experience from the Cunningham family. It began with a truck stop and a small fleet of fuel transports in Southwest Kansas.

Dodge City Truck Stop

During the 70's when fuel was in short supply and being allocated, the fleet transported fuels directly from terminals located in the Central United States to convenience stores and power plants as well as supplying fuel for the affiliated Hitch'n Post Truck and Auto Plaza (formally known as The Dodge City Truck Stop.)

Fire! Fire!

In 1977 a fire broke out on a Sunday morning while many citizens of Dodge City were enjoying the traditional Sunday family breakfast/lunch in the restaurant. The Truck Stop was destroyed and luckily there was nobody hurt except a city fire fighter and a civil defense fire fighter who decided to get in a brawl over who had jurisdiction to fight the fire.

The primary transportation was the distribution of fresh poultry products for more than 350 national fast food restaurants through out the Central United States. The transportation of beef and poultry was also provided to the companies affiliated production facility located in Kansas City.
