2017 advertising opportunity

Hello all!

We would like to update the photos on our front page. So we offer to you a advertising opportunity for 2017. If you have a solid action shot that will fit the basic shape of our existing photos and think it deserves to be placed we’d like to have a look at it. We will credit the company that supplies the photo we choose by encoding the photo with all of your company information as well as website address so you’ll have a credit on a million + human visits a month site that is above the fold to boot! A link like this on an old internet dinosaur like us is almost priceless. It will make your own website climb much higher in the search results.

However, I would like to caution you. We’ve done this in the past and got a lot of great pictures submitted. However, we’re looking for a glam shot. It has to be the absolute best photo you’ve got so please limit your submission to two photos.

send us your photo

Send us your best photo and maybe we’ll use it crediting your company.

In order to prevent spam please let us know that you’d like to submit some of your pictures with us by sending us a quick email. We will reply with the correct address to submit it to. We appreciate each and everyone that submits their material however we only have one slot in each category. If we could we’d publish them all. But who knows? You may be asked if we can use it on one of our articles.

Materials must be sent by the owner and must not be published at any other location on the web. We thank you all!

As the 2017 heavy haul trucking season begins

Another season begins slowly with volumes down but this latest economic boost (growth of 1.2% in the first quarter!) tells us the future looks bright for the shipping industry. Signs of increasing consumer confidence are evident as we are starting to see sales of boats, swimming pools, machinery and auction equipment.

Driver nutrition. This is a serious topic.

Drivers need balanced nutrition and healthy choices to stay “heart smart” and alert on the road. Truck stops and Road-side diners think more about their profit margins than being consumer conscientious.

We’ll be reporting much more on this topic throughout the summer to help drivers live longer, healthier lives… stay tuned!

 

Other quick reminders:

Check rig brakes, air and all fluids.

Inspect all signs, flags and brackets/holders.

Check all lights, turn signals and strobes.

Inspect safety equipment flares and extinguishers.

Check radio equipment, electronics, etc.

Make sure driver safety vest, jobsite hard hat’s in good shape, fits your driver and is in the cab handy.

If your drivers do not have TWIC cards, get them. There’s no reason you should miss out on work over something so trivial. Need a TWIC card? Need TWIC cards?.

 

We expect a solid season with driver safety at the top of the list and driver nutrition to follow. Please consider these issues as they promote a healthy, sustainable and profitable company.

 

Until next time,
