UFI Transportation opened in January 2006 with 20 trucks and 50 trailers. Our company was started to service United Furniture Industries, and we are dedicated to them for our outbound loads. We have made great progress and currently have 200 trucks and 600+ trailers in our fleet. We have terminals in Tupelo, Mississippi (corporate location), Lexington, NC and Victorville, CA. Our trucks are all Freightliners between the years of 2015 and 2018 and all of our trailers are 10 or less. We are a growing trucking company with a very bright future.
Safety is one of our MOST important goals. All of our newest trucks are equipped with all available safety features. The Detroit Assurance Collision Mitigation System is included on all of our new Freightliners. The have adaptive cruise control which allows the truck to slow itself down when approaching traffic, lane departure warnings and forwarding facing cameras in the trucks to protect the drivers, and the company for unsubstantiated claims. We hold quarterly safety meeting to encourage safe driving and to discuss any new regulations and or any company changes. Our drivers average between 120,000 and 150,000 miles per year. We offer a safety bonus, an on-time bonus, and a fuel bonus on a quarterly basis. We contribute $50.00 per month toward the driver’s cell phone cost. There is a sign-on bonus and a referral bonus available to our drivers. The drivers are given a letterman’s jacket and the end of 5 years of service. There currently some development of additional incremental awards for most miles, safety and length of service.
