As a family-owned business having three generations of experience within the freight industry, we wish to extend that same family atmosphere to our clients, our employees and their, families. We know the value of a solid work ethic; we believe in strong family values. and we deliver on both.
We put the safety of our drivers, the public, and our customers' products first. Drivers go through pre-employment screening, safety training, and drug testing before being hired. Once hired, drivers are updated daily on safety issues. Our drivers watch and review safety videos monthly, and attend safety meetings quarterly. All of our equipment is inspected and serviced at regularly scheduled maintenance intervals either here (within our own in-house repair and inspection facility) or other officially designated facilities. We maintain an open door policy in which drivers and management freely discuss safety and other related issues.
Clients: If you want a carrier where you can speak with someone on a first-name basis, someone you can develop a personal relationship with, you will enjoy the personalized services we offer. Never will you be made to feel as though you need to take-a-number-and-wait in order to explain the intricacies of hauling your goods or commodities with us. Consider Protected Cargo Transport for your hauling needs. Allow us the opportunity to prove to you what "Committed To Service" means to us. We believe you will feel at home here.
Drivers and Owner-Operators: We understand the difficulties you have in balancing your desire to provide a comfortable quality of life for your family against the time you spend away from them. Prolonged separation and the need to become reacquainted with your family on returning home is neither healthy, nor necessary. Like you, we are working folks with families too. We know each of our drivers personally and our commitment to work hard in helping you maximize your earning potential while increasing your home time is one we take seriously. Our open door policy ensures drivers and management are free to discuss scheduling needs at any time. Contact us, or check out our employment page if you are looking for a carrier with year round work, competitive pay, generous home time and a family atmosphere.
SERVICES WE OFFER
Being primarily a curtain-side fleet, Protected Cargo Transport utilizes 48’ & 53’ trailers to quickly and safely move short mileage loads. Our trucks can go to a customer, load their cargo, and secure it in a third of the time required to load a regular flatbed. This gets the load on the road quicker to the consignee. We service LA, AR, MS, AL and East Texas with a group of trucks crisscrossing these states all week long.
Another group of curtain-sides haul special building material products leaving the LA, AR and MS areas weekly with loads bound for the east coast. Once there, these trucks will often move short mileage loads for our customers before loading back towards LA.
In addition to our curtain-side fleet we also run standard 48’ & 53’ flatbed trailers. These are utilized to haul commodities and products less suitable for curtain-side trailers. All of our flatbed trailers are equipped with tarps and run the same areas as the curtain-side trailers.
Some of the primary commodities we haul:
Roofing / Siding Material
LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber)
Rail Road Wheels
Rail Road Parts Used in Manufacturing of Rail Cars
Oilfield Valves and Supplies
Utility High-Line Supplies
We are always eager to hear from established and potential customers alike regarding their present and future transportation needs. Call and let us prove to you why Protected Cargo Transport should be your first choice.
