John Ruan remembered by family and transportation industry

February 2010 - John Ruan, founder of Ruan Transportation Management Systems, passed away Feb. 13 at the age of 96. Ruan founded the company in 1932 during the Great Depression, and it has been in business for more than 77 years.

John Ruan contributed to various charities and served as director for multiple companies. In 1997, the Ruan Transportation Center was dedicated in his honor in Washington, D.C.

"Our family is grieving. We have lost our mentor and dear companion," said John Ruan's son, John Ruan III, chairman and CEO of Ruan. "My father's influence in the industry and with his employees and customers built the strong foundation for the company that exists today."
