About Us

Goettsch Dispatch has a long history of hauling ag produce and livestock. Merlin Goettsch, grandfather of Andy and a Purple Heart recipient from WWII, started Goettsch Dispatch & Grain back in the late 1960’s. Andy’s grandfather and his father, Tom, made a name delivering grain and livestock at fair and reasonable prices. They cover about a three-hundred-mile radius around their home base in Galva, Iowa.


Andy recently added gravel, sand and rock hauling and sales to the list of services.


One reason Goettsch Dispatch is able to provide on-time and affordable pickup and delivery is their employees. They have over 30 employees, known to be quick, efficient and friendly problem-solvers. Andy considers them part of the Goettsch family.


Service is what sets Goettsch Dispatch apart from other haulers. They provide a full-service approach and go the extra mile, which includes convenient and efficient grain vac loading. Goettsch even provides grain buying for his customers.


With 25 grain hauling trailers, 6 livestock trailers, 6 belly dumps and 1 dry van, flexibility and customized hauling options mean they save clients time and money.
