DCR: Sub-Agent of MIN
Our sub-agency, DCR, has been with us since 2004. Run by Dan Mitchell out of Stillwater, MN, CR Danstar Transportation was founded on the principles of passion, dedication, and business integrity. With over 24 years of experience in the trucking industry, Dan has experienced multiple sides of the industry and uses this knowledge to provide exceptional service to customers and drivers alike.
Dan first came to the MIN Agency in 2003, looking to become a member of our team. After an interview, he was called back to the office by agency owner, Bobby Schlieske. Bobby offered him a sub-agent opportunity.
“He saw something in me that I didn’t even see in myself,” says Dan.
