“Delivering Excellence One Load at a Time”

“Delivering Excellence One Load at a Time” is one way Summers Trucking likes to describe our service.

 

Our company’s mission is to provide safe, dependable truck transportation and superior customer service to all of our shippers, as well as to provide all of our employees with a safe and desirable workplace, quality equipment and fair pay with appropriate fringe benefits. We believe that making SAFETY our number one priority will assist us in better serving our shippers as well as providing for the well-being of the company, our employees, and the general public. Our commitment to safety is proven by our staff of dedicated drivers, who have driven millions of accident-free miles and the numerous awards we have received because of our combined efforts.

Although we have many trucks and trailers, and we safely haul some of the largest loads, we wouldn’t have gotten this far without the passion and persistence of our employees. Our employees, combined with our well maintained for hire fleet, provide the resources to get things done. Four generations of Summers family leadership, as well as an experienced, service-oriented team that welcomes every challenge, is what has propelled the company to where it is today.

Years of transportation experience, expert knowledge of regulations and the permitting system, as well as our detailed on-time delivery system; are the reasons we’re able to deliver both freight and confidence. We offer valuable shipping advice, which often leads to significant savings when hauling over-dimensional loads. Years ago, then-president Harold Summers, worked with a shipper and its engineers to design specialty trailer racks so that the shipper could tilt the load to allow a reduction in shipping dimensions. By reducing the shipping dimensions the need for escorts was eliminated and permit fees were also reduced. This is one example of how our knowledge and expertise in the trucking industry has helped a valued customer. Our desire to “do it better” is always at the heart of Summers Trucking and we look forward to serving your transportation needs.
