Kim Lundeen Long Haul Trucking

Drive with Pride
Long Haul as a company has made it a mission since opening our doors to always be known as one of the most professional, safe and reliable fleets on the road. Doing the little things right in order to remain great, and among the most elite trucking companies in the world, is something we should take pride in every day. Keep this in mind when out on the road. Always be courteous, humble and professional while considering the amount of time and outstanding drivers that have helped build our great reputation over the years. Never forget how important it is to be a positive representation for our company with every mile driven and load delivered. We believe that anyone who encounters one of our drivers or employees should always believe we operate a first-class company. Thank you again to all our outstanding drivers and employees for giving us a company to be proud of!

Waupun Truck N Show 2018!
Don’t miss your chance to learn all about Long Haul and see some of our most beautiful trucks at the 29th annual Waupun Truck-N-Show, held August 10th and 11th in Waupun, WI. This year we are proud to announce that long time Long Haul company driver, Jeff Bolstad will not only be representing our company, but will be the parade marshal for the event! This is a major honor and we couldn’t be prouder to have our company on display at this well known event! If you plan on attending and have interest in learning about our team, don’t hesitate to swing by our company booth and ask questions!

Parking Wars
With electronic logs putting tighter constraints on our clock, it’s grown more critical to have a safe parking location established when trip planning. Furthermore, customers more now than ever seem willing to allow drivers to park on premises as it can mean the difference on which day a shipment is delivered. If you are having any issues safely finding a place to shut down, don’t hesitate to ask dispatch for advice, or a customer for permission to stay on their lot. Keeping our drivers safe and legal is the first step in remaining among America’s greatest fleets!

Three Keys for the Month
1) Load with care, drive with pride, and deliver on time!
2) Don’t miss your chance to see Jeff Bolstad lead the parade at the 29th annual Waupun Truck-N-Show August 10th and 11th!
3) Don’t forget to be mindful of all posted and mandated speed restriction laws for each part of the country you travel!

The Bottom Line:
“Safety tips to keep our money in our wallets, not paying fines”
Summer has been busy and freight is moving fast, but that doesn’t mean that we need to speed up to stay ahead! Speeding violations are a quick way to risk earning a ticket, or worse, risking the safety of yourself and those on the roads around you. Please don’t forget the importance of operating within the posted speed regulations and always being courteous of other drivers on the road. You never know when the individual in the passenger vehicle next to you could be a fellow employee, customer or partner. Let’s make sure to always do the little things right in order to stay free of violations or citations!
