In 1991, Utility Trailer of Dallas Inc (UTD) was started in a small trailer located on Irving Boulevard just southwest of downtown Dallas. Although the business was growing, it needed more space and a more advantageous location.

In 1996, UTD owners, Packy Watson and Dan Mooney, saw great growth potential for future business in Dallas-Fort Worth and decided to purchase land and relocate their headquarters near the intersection of I-20 and I-45 on Bonnie View Road. The land is in South Dallas and in close proximity to the International Inland Port of Dallas (IIPOD).
According to the City of Dallas, the IIPOD is an intermodal and logistics district that connects global, national and local markets and encompasses 7,500 acres and 5 municipalities. The IIPOD has grown into one of the nation’s best logistics transportation infrastructures.
