Creation of the Clydesdale Brand
Clydesdale Lines, LLC. founded in 2018 was a direct response to a community need. The Clydesdale brand is exclusively built in memory of Clyde W. Sheldon, a US WWII Navy Veteran who passed along with his wife Dorothy in a motor vehicle accident in 1995. Clyde Sheldon was Derek Sheldon's Grandfather and hero. He wanted to preserve the memory of the most exceptional man he ever knew.
When Mr. Sheldon was considering the brand for his new company, Derek had his Grandfather in mind. Since Clydesdale horses were the primary power source for livery and transportation needs prior to the industrial revolution, it was only natural to associate the distinctive attributes of the Clydesdale horse and develop the honorarium for his Grandfather.
Our motto, "Miles to Go Before We Sleep..." is derived from the last line of the Robert Frost poem, Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening which clearly parallels our company mission our work continues until every last passenger reaches their destination safely.
