Freightliner Trucks has been known as Freightliner Inc since 1942, but it actually has an earlier history in the 1930s as Consolidated Freightways. Consolidated Freightways began to develop its own line of trucks by reconstructing Fageols in an attempt to improve the abilities of heavy duty trucks to be able to climb the steep grades of the mountainous regions of the western part of the United States.
These trucks were called "Freightliners," thus the beginning of the future of the Freightliner Trucks Company. The first trucks were made in Consolidated Freightways factory in Salt Lake City in 1942, the same year the company became Freightliner.
