From 25 Years in Prison to Owning His Own Box Truck Delivery Company



Ed Hennings, an African American man from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who served 20 years in prison, is now an entrepreneur who owns several businesses, including Go Time Trucking. He provides not only goods but also inspiration through his business.


Hennings was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 1996 after being found guilty of first-degree reckless homicide. When he was released in 2016, he immediately changed his life. According to his Fox Soul interview, he has since launched three businesses: his own barbershop, an apparel line, and a box truck fleet company.


Go Time Trucking is aligned with Hennings’ goal to help those who are struggling in life to get back on their feet. He employs those who have the same background as him and inspires them by leading by example.


“Whether it be in prison or out here in the free world, there’s a lot of brokenness, so people need some inspiration and to know they can do it,” said Hennings, who is also a motivational speaker and author.
