Our company tractors are Volvo, Peterbilt, Freightliner or International tractors. Our tractor specifications are designed to provide a smooth, safe ride with good fuel utilization. Engines vary by truck manufacturer and include Volvo, Detroit, Cummins, or MaxxForce. Transmission offerings include, standard 10 speed manuals and 10 and 12 speed automated models. 90% of the tractors are designated as SmartWay approved.
We maintain a 2:1 trailer to tractor ratio – all are 53’ air-ride equipped. Our fleet makeup is three-fourths dry van (plate trailers with wood floors) and one-fourth reefers. All trailers are weather resistant and in good condition. We protect our loaded trailers with kingpin locks when unattended. This ensures that the trailer cannot be hooked to an unauthorized tractor. All trailers have cargo securement equipment. All of our trailers are compliant with CARB regulations.
All of our tractors are equipped with QualComm global satellite positioning units. Each tractor is tracked, 24/7, and the location is downloaded into our dispatch software. We also send dispatch load information and other messages to our driver via the satellite. We can pinpoint the location of any load within minutes.
We have a maintenance facility in Oxford, IA. All preventive maintenance and many repairs are completed there. Please check out our Vehicle Maintenance BASIC on the DOT website FMCSA SMS using our US DOT #307512.
