We train our Drivers because it matters.

Training truck drivers is great for both the company and the drivers because it can improve safety, efficiency, and job satisfaction. Well-trained drivers are less likely to be involved in accidents, reducing the risk of damage to the company’s equipment, cargo, and reputation. Additionally, trained drivers can be more efficient, leading to cost savings for the company and potentially higher earnings for the driver. Finally, investing in training can show drivers that the company values their safety and success, which can lead to increased job satisfaction and retention rates.

Being trained with the Smith System for driving a truck can provide numerous advantages, such as reducing the risk of accidents, improving fuel efficiency, and increasing overall driver awareness and safety on the road.

Being trained as a truck driver with a simulator can be a great option because it allows for a safe and controlled learning environment, without the risks associated with real-life driving. Simulators can also provide a range of scenarios and challenges that may not be easily replicable in real-life training, allowing for more comprehensive and diverse training experiences. Additionally, simulators can be more cost-effective and time-efficient than traditional training methods, as they can be used at any time and in any weather conditions.

Our Drivers Get the best service.

We utilize the latest equipment from Hunter Engineering Company for our 3 axle alignment, tire mounting and balancing. We also have a Hunter full truck lift that not even OEM shops typically have.

Our shop is a great advantage as we are able to fully inspect and repair EVERY truck that comes back to our yard prior to it going back on the road. Reduces on the road down time which increases our on time deliveries. Having an in house repair facility allows us to control the downtime each truck might incur. If the trucks have to go to an OEM shop, we are put in line behind other trucks and are serviced in the order received. This would create gaps in our service and in turn would lose us contracts.

Having an in-house repair facility for a trucking company can be great because it allows for faster and more efficient maintenance and repairs, which can minimize downtime and ultimately save the company time and money in the long run.

Additionally, having an in-house repair facility can give the trucking company more control over the quality of repairs and maintenance performed on their vehicles, ensuring that they are up to industry standards and regulations, and reducing the risk of accidents or breakdowns on the road.
