Modern freight moving fleet
For a trucking company, success is found in it’s drivers. But even the best drivers need something to work with. We know that a driver won’t be happy working in sub-par equipment. We believe in operating our company with a fleet of trucks that are purchased new and removed from our fleet before they reach 500,000 miles.
We have been a fleet consisting primarily of Volvo Trucks. We have formed a partnership with Volvo that has been very beneficial to us and our drivers. Volvo has a very innovative product that has proven reliability when properly maintained. Our trucks are equipped with many features that enhance safety comfort.
For a small company, our Maintenance Program is second to none. Drivers are not required to use their time waiting for routine maintenance. We take care of that for you! All maintenance is tracked and recorded in our office. Most of the maintenance is performed at our terminal while the driver is at home. By keeping a fleet of trucks that are the same brand, we are very familiar with the maintenance schedules and know all of the ins and outs of the new technology on the trucks and keep close watch on all maintenance items. We also have mechanics at our terminal each day to perform maintenance and small repairs.
We know that a trucking company is only as good as its drivers and the people who lead them….
With a lifetime of experience in the industry our leadership team have many qualifications that give us an edge to success.
