Trucking firms represented on Forbes list

Arkansas Best Corp., C.H. Robinson, the Hub Group, J.B. Hunt Transport, Landstar System, Pacer International, and Werner Enterprises each were named in the transportation industry; BorgWarner, Paccar and Volvo were selected in consumer durables; Caterpillar, Cummins and Ingersoll-Rand made the capital goods list; and Lubrizol was among the noteworthy chemical companies.
