Carriers are the backbone of our success. Without our carriers, we wouldn’t be able to offer our shippers the quality and reliability they’ve come to expect from us. September’s Carrier of the Month, ATW Trucking, has been a partner of Spot’s for about 4 years. We sincerely value their communication, focus on delivering our loads on time, and their prompt responses to any issues that arise. Read on for a Q&A to learn more about ATW and their take on the transportation industry.
Tell us about your founding: In 2004, we identified an opportunity to provide transportation solutions to what we believed was an underserved market. What started out with 1 sprinter van and 1 opportunity has evolved to a fleet of 30+ tractors and a continued dedication to providing the highest level of service to our customers.
What does your company specialize in?: We operate dry vans throughout the Midwest, typically within a 500 mile radius of our home base in Bargersville, Indiana.
Why do you enjoy working with Spot?: We’ve had the opportunity to work and develop friendships with several people at Spot. They run a very efficient operation and give us the ability to serve an array of industries and customers we wouldn’t typically have access to.
How do 3PLs impact your business?: Beyond keeping our trucks full, 3PLs provide us with an opportunity to expand our business and network of customers we ship for.
If you could change one thing about the transportation industry, what would it be?: The 2 hour “standard” for shippers and receivers to load/unload.
