Despite all of the fancy technology and equipment that has flooded the trucking industry in recent years, Brad Girton, vice president of Girton Propane Services Inc., says that sticking to simple business practices is what has led to his company’s success. 

“The biggest thing for us is just service,” Girton says. “That’s how we’ve been able to grow. It’s good service, follow-through and paying attention to the details that our shippers ask of us. There’s been a lot of fleets that have sold and merged with bigger fleets, but I feel that we are at a premium size. We are big enough to take on big projects but small enough to maintain tight control on all the details and on our service.” 

Gazelle Transportation Inc. looks to become the nation’s premier crude oil transportation company and believes it holds the key to achieving that goal because of its dedication to on-time hauling and safety.

The company was founded in January 1993 and is recognized as one of the industry leaders in providing safe, reliable and competitively priced service to the oil and gas industry. Gazelle transports crude oil by truck from California, Texas, the Rocky Mountains area, New Mexico and Wyoming. 

Folks who visited the original Fox’s Den Pizzas 40 years ago will find many of the same things today. The family owned and operated company still makes authentic Italian pizzas using hand-tossed dough topped with a proprietary and award-winning pizza sauce. Among its ingredients, the company still boasts San Marzano-style grown tomatoes, and a freshly grated Italian Pecorino Romano cheese from the rugged Apennine mountains of Central Italy blended with a special grade of Italian extra virgin olive oil. When it comes to the menu, the same standards set decades ago remains today. In fact, the only major thing about the company that has changed is its size. 

For Eastern Car Liner, shipping large cargo such as cars and heavy equipment is a cinch. “I’d describe us as a niche carrier,” COO Bill Christ says. “When most people think of shipping, it is an industry with rectangular boxes on container ships. We are in not in that type of trade. Everything is unique in our shipments; it takes extra attention if it doesn’t fit in that container box. You need to adapt and change and go where the cargo needs to go.”

For Dutch Maid Logistics Inc., the issue isn’t getting enough business but rather getting enough drivers to handle the equipment and business the company has. With the economy improving in the company’s area, drivers are seeking out lucrative opportunities outside the trucking industry.

“I think it’s terrible, but it’s the nature of the business,” Vice President of Operations Sam Burrer laments. “You fight the battle of keeping them because there are lots of opportunities out there for them.”

As one of the nation’s largest providers of pharmacy healthcare services, CVS Caremark understands the necessity of having the right items at the right time. With more than 7,300 pharmacy/retail locations across the country, CVS Caremark supplies millions of people each day with the healthcare products and services they need to maintain their well-being. Making sure that the company’s well-being is intact means having a state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure that merges the company’s own facilities and services with third-party providers. 

Covenant Transport was founded in 1986 by David and Jacqueline Parker with 25 trucks and 50 trailers. Today, it is part of Covenant Transportation Group, a large, publicly traded company with more than $530 million in annual revenues and 2,800 tractors and nearly 5,500 trailers. 

“The company was founded upon a promise or covenant,” President Joey B. Hogan says. “Mr. Parker made a covenant with God that he would operate his company with honesty, integrity and for His glory, and those principles still guide us to this day.” 

Every city needs a fleet of finely tuned vehicles and equipment to keep its operations moving. The city of Tyler, Texas, keeps order through its Fleet Operations department, which not only maintains and services its fleet regularly, but also provides residential and commercial waste services.

“We answer the call to serve said,” Director of Solid Waste and Vehicles Services Russ Jackson declares. A 27-year veteran of the city, he notes that the city’s history goes back to the 1800s.
