A Little More About Who We Are:

  • We are only as good as how well we take care of our drivers. Our drivers are experienced, professional, and hard-working people and we take our commitment to them seriously because without them our business wouldn’t exist.
  • We’re not perfect, but we do our best to take care of our employees. We value our employees’ experience and knowledge – it’s in large part due to their efforts that we’ve enjoyed the success we have for so many years.
  • We remain true to our roots and are intentional about not sacrificing our culture simply for the sake of growth. Even though we are a large company that enjoys the benefits of a larger operation, we are not “corporate” and never intend to be.
  • We have a “roll up our sleeves” mentality. We work hard, but we do it together and make sure to find ways to still have fun and celebrate our successes and each other.
  • We don’t believe in standing still. We’re always looking for ways to improve and evolve.
  • Because we manage several different types of trucking operations, we are a stable, diversified business. And, unlike many trucking companies that are publicly-traded or owned by private equity, we are proud to be an independent company.
  • We’re in it for the long-term, which is why honesty, responsiveness, accuracy, and teamwork mean a lot to us. We don’t chase short-term gain at the expense of our long-term business.
