Without our drivers and the value that they provide for our clients, we would not be able to reach the same level of success that we have gotten to today! Thank you, drivers, for all you do!

These drivers had clean inspections during the CVSA Brake Safety Week. Each driver will receive a $100 gift card. Way to go on being prepared and earning a clean inspection!

Grab Your Chains!
It’s hard to believe that summer is already ending, but with September in our laps we wanted to remind each of our drivers that this also means Colorado Chain Laws will be placed into effect soon! Don’t forget to make sure you have the appropriate amount of chains and gear in your trucks when heading west! We want to make sure that each of our teammates is set up for success when hauling across the country, all year long!

Take Care of the Inside of your Trailers!
We are very fortunate to have not only have some of the best tractors on the road today, but trailers that are second to none in innovation and technology as well! With the variety of commodity we haul, from machinery to metal and everything in between, it’s important to remain vigilant on keeping your trailer deck in great condition. Always keep an eye out for grease or oil stains left from a load of machinery in order to prevent your next load to run the risk of getting dirty or shifting while in transit. This is instrumental in not only ensuring our customers commodity remains intact, but that our drivers remain safe as well!
