CARLISLE, Pa. — Daily Express, which specializes in the transport of heavy equipment, is launching of Daily Expedited, an open-deck, high-mileage division within the company and is seeking to fill positions within that division.
“Expedited means just that — prioritized, on time, dependable, efficient, and above all, safe,” says CEO Todd Long. “It’s what our customers expect.
Although the name is Daily Expedited, the freight still consists of construction and agricultural equipment, Long said, adding that Daily Express’ extensive freight network of construction equipment loads would allow owner-operators to work as hard as they want.
“Daily Expedited drivers can expect minimal down time between loads and reliable home time, features that will be critical in efforts to recruit owner-operators for this new fleet,” Long said.
Each truck in this new fleet will operate between 110,000 to 130,000 miles a year moving both legal and less than 12-foot wide loads moving on stepdeck and lowboy trailers.
“Our customers have an abundance of this type of freight and expect us to move it with the same Daily Express standard of excellence that they know and appreciate,” Long said
Daily Express has named Greg Book to the position of Daily Expedited coordinator. Book has extensive experience in third-party logistics and understands the importance of timeliness to shippers.
“We are all looking forward to the many challenges, opportunities and successes that this operation will present,” Long said. “It will allow us to move a lot more of this type of freight, something our customers would like us to do. Additionally, our fleet will be able to hire a new class of drivers who will be the future specialized and special equipment truck drivers of Daily Express.”
Among the freight transported by Daily Express are construction equipment, agricultural equipment, machinery, and wind energy products.
Daily Express will need to hire about 30 owner-operators for the new fleet.
