Summer is here, the kids are out of school, and the roads are as busy as every. Sound like a job for Service Transportation. Everyday our drivers are out on the roads, delivering loads from Miami, FL to Appleton, WI. This isn’t an easy job, but with the right attitude and a commitment to safety, our drivers ensure safe deliveries and enjoyable time off with family and friends. We truly appreciate everything our drivers do and know that without them there is no Service Transportation, INC. Next time you see a driver, give them a wave, pull on that imaginary horn (EXPECT A BIG TOOT BACK) and know that without professional drivers our summertime BBQ’s and pool parties wouldn’t be possible.
Service Transportation places high standards on our professional drivers. In return we offer great hometime, a full benefits package, best in class bonus and earnings potential and top of the line equipment. So what more could a driver want. Well a few extra spending dollars never hurts. So Service Transportation is happy to announce a 2nd half of 2017 $1000 giveaway, ZERO = $1000. From July 3rd, 2017, until December 31. 2017, any driver who remains free of preventable accidents, has no loss time work injury, no roadside inspections with violations, no breakdowns of the drivers causing or worsening, no log citations, or violating of the hours of service rules for any reason, and no service failures due to driver error, will be entered into a drawing to receive $1000. High expectations are expected from every driver, and we hope to have every driver eligible for this prize. If you have any questions about this please contact the Safety Department at 843-537-9587 ext. 7.
Just like in golf where the low score wins, having zero issues in these areas can truly pay off.
Drive Safe, Drive Smart, Deliver Service.
BREAKING NEWS, The United States Supreme Court announced today that it will not hear a case on the required use of electronic logs (e-logs) in commercial vehicles. So what does that mean? For Service Transportation is means nothing, because even if the rules were changed at this point, e-logs have proven to be an asset to dispatch, customers and drivers. DRIVER?? Yes many of our drivers will tell you that compared to other companies they have worked at where the load was expected to be somewhere no matter what, having the e-log ensure they are getting the required rest they need has been a real blessing in disguise. Because at the end of the day its not about driving 11 or 15 hours, its about having a quality of life, that includes them safely getting home to their loved ones. And that’s a delivery that always needs to happen.
ROADCHECK 2017- JUNE 6-8, 2017….SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR YOU? FOR MANY DRIVERS THIS IS A NERVOUS TIME, WHERE THE WORRY AND BURDEN OF BEING INSPECTED LEADS TO A STRESS FILLED FEW DAYS. FOR OTHERS, THOSE WHO ARE DOING THEIR JOBS AS PROFESSIONALS EVERYDAY WILL NO WORRIES. THIS YEARS FOCUS IS ON LOAD SECUREMENT. ENSURE EVERY LOAD YOU PULL IS SECURED AGAINST MOVEMENT AND SEALED WITH A TRAILER SEAL WITH THE SEAL NUMBER RECORDED ON THE PAPERWORK FOR THE LOAD. HERE AT SERVICE TRANSPORTATION WE KNOW WE WILL HAVE OUR SHARE OF INSPECTIONS DURING THIS TIME, BUT WE ALSO EXPECT TO HAVE A 100% PASSING RATE FOR ALL INSPECTIONS. IF STOPPED, ALWAYS REMAIN PROFESSIONAL, NEVER ARGUE WITH AN OFFICER, AND NOTIFY THE COMPANY AS SOON AS YOUR INSPECTION IS COMPLETE AND GIVE US THE GREAT NEWS OF ANOTEHR PASSING INSPECTION. REMEMBER ALSO THAT ALL TIME SPENT DURING INSPECTIONS NEED TO SHOWN ON-DUTY, AND NOTED IN YOUR LOGS AS EITHER ROADSIDE INSPECTION, OR INSPECTION AT FIXED SITE. BELOW IS A LINK TO THE COMMERCIAL VEHICLE SAFETY ADMINISTRATION WEBPAGE REGARDING THIS YEARS ROAD CHECK. PLEASE CONTACT THE SAFETY DEPARTMENT AT EXTENTION 7 IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, OR THE MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT SHOULD YOU NEED EQUIPTMENT REPAIRED AT EXTENSION 113. YOUR SUCCESS IS THE COMPANIES SUCCESS. IF YOU DO IT RIGHT, THEN YOU CANT DO IT WRONG… I WAS TAUGHT THAT UPON MY ENTRY INTO THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY, AND IT RINGS TRUE IN EVERYTHING WE DO. STAY SAFE, RUN LEGAL, AND DO IT RIGHT.
THANK YOU AND DRIVE SAFE.

BEING A PROFESSIONAL DRIVER IS NEVER EASY, THIS I KNOW FIRSTHAND. THE DEADLINES AND PAPERWORK, THE WORRIES OF ISSUES OF HOME AND FAMILY ALONG WITH ALL THOSE CRAZY DRIVERS YOU SHARE THE ROAD WITH ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH DURING A WEEK. BUT YOU KNOW THESE THINGS ARE THINGS YOU HANDLE EVERYDAY. NO MATTER THE ROUTE YOU RUN, OR HOW OFTEN YOU HAVE TAKEN ANY STRETCH OF ROAD, ITS NEVER THE TWICE. THAT BLUE CAR LAST WEEK MAY BE A SCHOOL BUS TODAY, OR THE SMOOTHEST OF ROADS MONTHS AGO MAY TODAY BE TORN APART FOR ANOTHER REPAIR. AS YOU MOVE EVERYTHING AROUND YOU CHANGES. THE ONLY CONSTANT IS YOUR DILIGENCE BEHIND THE WHEEL TO KNOW THAT WHILE EVERY MILE YOU RUN IS WHAT PAYS THE BILLS, ITS ACTUALLY EVERY INCH YOU DRIVE THAT GETS YOU THERE. STAY RESTED, STAY FOCUSED, DRIVE SMART AND NEVER TAKE CHANCES.
FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME ANYTIME AT FRANK.EVANS@SERVTRAN.COM , OR POST A COMMENT IN THE COMMENTS. I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO SHARE YOUR TIPS FOR STAYING SAFE ON THE ROAD.
