Benjamin Gotfredson started Transamerican Freight Lines with a handful of GOTFREDSON Trucks about 1929. I will assume he possessed Brand Loyalty and acquired additional units of which this is one.

I go for Gotfredson, too. In the late 40s and early 50s Transamerican was the only large carrier that would not interchange trailers, which was very common as there were regional and not nation-wide carriers at that time. Glee

It is Gotfredson out of Detroit, and Bill White has it. Don and Glee have provided more info than I could. All I know is that this Gotfredson Diesel appeared in Commercial Car Journal in October 1933 in an article on diesel trucks in the midwest and far west.
