In 1978 Bill Howard (CEO/Founder) produced his first truck publication from his kitchen table. Quickly, the company that would become Fastline grew to five trucking industry publications. The company searched for other industries to serve with a trade publication, and in 1986 purchased two agricultural publications.
Today, Fastline prints and mails 23 publications to 1 million farmers and ranchers in the US and Mexico. Fastline.com is the largest ag equipment database in the world. Over 1 million monthly visitors search Fastline.com for tractors, trucks, trailers, parts and services for their farm operation.
One of Fastline’s readers said he is a “kid in a candy shop” when Fastline arrives every four weeks.
Fastline prides itself on helping both the equipment seller and the equipment buyers (farmers) become more successful by bringing these two hard-working groups together.
This past year Fastline launched two new products: Jillsjunction.com and AgRacer. Jillsjunction.com is a website for women in the agriculture industry. AgRacer allows gamers to race farm equipment. It is a free downloadable app for iPhone and Androids.
