THIS IS HOW WE DELIVER TRUCKLOAD CAPACITY TO OUR CUSTOMERS
PINNACLE TRUCKING FLEET
Pinnacle has contracted with the major leasing companies to lease our power units. We have greatly reduced downtime and delays with maintenance programs that our leasing partners provide. Drivers do not make money when waiting for trucks to be repaired and customers are inconvenienced when delays occur. By leasing our trucks, we have happier drivers and happier customers. Our trailers are all company owned and consist of both refrigerated and dry vans 53 feet and 48 feet.
SMALL FLEETS & INDEPENDENTS
We all know that larger trucking companies are struggling with finding qualified drivers and driver turn-over. They are not buying trucks and adding capacity. Most are finding alternative ways to transport freight such as rail and intermodal transport. Capacity needs to come from small fleets and independents. The challenge is that small fleets need to be managed, monitored and paid quickly. That’s our job and value proposition to you. We maintain their CSA scores and monitor their insurance coverage daily using state of the art technology. All of this translates to more capacity and protection for you.
INDEPENDENT FREIGHT AGENTS
Our independent freight agents complement our program by keeping our trucks and partner carriers rolling. Our agents work hard to build relationships with shippers that need capacity, dependability and visibility. Asset based trucking cannot always be there when you need them and at times can have difficulty meeting capacity commitments. Our team is focused on working closely with shippers and we use a more proactive approach that includes visibility to our fleet of trucks and professional, experienced communication.
