Utilizing Global Positioning Satellite(GPS) communications, this system is accurate to within 1000 feet. Each unit provides full-time, two-way information flow between drivers and the Palmetto State Transportation Control Center.

Don't settle for "it's out for delivery" ... when Palmetto State Transportation can tell you that the truck is 15 miles from your customer and should deliver within the next 30 minutes.

Less Damage

All trailers are air-ride equipped with E-Track system for freight that is received and locked down during transit.

Load-to-ride + no break-bulks + very little handling = very few claims.

Delivering "off the truck" and no break-bulks, combined with the E-Track load securing system makes damages go away!
