As communicated via blog earlier this week and via email to all managers a few weeks ago, the quarterly safety bonus payments to our drivers changed to a direct deposit process this week and are included in the drivers' pay today.

At one moment you are aware of the fatigue and in a split second you are sound asleep, completely unaware of what your vehicle is doing. This is an incredibly dangerous situation! Fatigue can be responsible for all different kinds of accidents…from hitting a yellow pole in a parking lot to a rollover accident due to ...

Ice, snow, and high winds all work towards reducing traction as well as visibility.  Tire chains are one of the best tools to help maintain traction when the road surfaces are covered in winter precipitation. In this video we ...

Winter is just around the corner and with that being said comes challenges in all aspects of our job duties. The long days will be drawing to an end resulting in shorter days and longer nights.

Soon, just a short walk from the truck to the building could be a challenge in and of itself! Each year, thousands of professional drivers are seriously injured due to not paying attention during winter conditions. Driving or even walking in ice and snow requires yo...
