Carriers are the backbone of our success. Without our carriers, we wouldn’t be able to offer our shippers the quality and reliability they’ve come to expect from us. August’s Carrier of the Month, Geraldine Transportation, is a newer carrier to Spot’s network, but has already achieved a 100% on-time delivery record in a short time. Read on for a Q&A to learn more about Geraldine and their take on the transportation industry. 

Tell us about your founding: In 1996, I started work as an owner-operator for a local piggyback company, but I always wanted to be independent, so in 2008, I started Geraldine on my own.

What does your company specialize in?: We specialize in hauling dry freight within a 500 mile radius from our home base in Justice, Illinois.

Why do you enjoy working with Spot?: Spot’s professionalism is second to none as well as the perfect service from their accounting department.

How do 3PLs impact your business?: They provide us with a steady flow of work!

If you could change one thing about the transportation industry, what would it be?: The HOS rules and being able to load/unload within one hour at receivers.
