This trucking company hauls freight throughout about 43 of the 50 United States. The company owns all of the 14 dry van trailers used to haul freight, but utilizes owner/operator drivers. The drivers are responsible for their own service and expense on their tractors. Most of the loads are full truck loads. At one point, about 90% of the freight business was through freight brokers with the balance coming direct from shipping customers. Over the last year, the direct shipping customer agreements have grown to about 35% of the business and the freight brokerage percentage has dropped to about 65%. The company has a great reputation for safety as noted by their numerous safety awards from both the trucking and insurance industries. This past year, revenues dropped due to both reduced commerce and the health issues of the owner. Additional direct shipping customer agreements is a source of growth for the future.
