What Our Drivers Are Saying

I started off local, did the local deal for my training thing, went to regional immediately after local, and OTR, too, I went everywhere. But my goal when I started was to be an owner-operator.
– Brett Hutchins, Owner-Operator
They look at you and speak to you like you’re one of them [...] This is definitely somewhere I belong.
– Mark Garcia, OTR Driver
Everyone is friendly, from the shop workers to the corporate workers, the office workers, everyone.”
– Terrian LeFlore, Local Driver

Our Equipment

LED Trailer Lights

LED trailer lights make our trailers more visible to traffic around them, even during the bright hours of daytime.  

Air-ride Trailers

Air-ride trailers reduce vibration in comparison to spring-ride trailers, offering a more comfortable driving experience.  

Air Release 5th Wheels

Air release 5th wheels have an automatically engaging secondary lock to ensure cargo safety and it eliminates the need for visual inspections under the trailer. 

Trusted Brands

Our day cabs and sleeper cabs are Volvo, Peterbilt, Freightliner, and Mack makes.  

Bull Guard and Distance Alert Sensors

The bull guard and distance alert sensors work together to keep everyone on the road safe. 

Aluminum Wheels with Quick Release Covers

Aluminum wheels with quick-release covers push air away from the tires and reduce drag, increasing fuel efficiency, and offer a 9-inch inspection opening, cutting down on time spent during inspections and inflation.  

Flow Below Skirting

Flow-below skirts increase fuel savings by 16%, on average.  

Automatic Tire Inflation

Automatic tire Inflatioi increases tire life by 15% and increases MPG efficiency, reducing our company’s environmental footprint and saving costs for our customers.  

Reinforced Trailers
