What We Do
How We Do It
HotShotTrucking.com has pioneered a foolproof shipping strategy to meet all our emergency and standard orders swiftly and safely. This strategy involves:
- Team Trucking: We send our drivers out in teams of two with instructions to switch between sleeping and working on an equitable basis. This allows both drivers to stay sufficiently rested to drive safely without requiring them to stop the truck.
- Full Truckload Tactics: We load your items into a truck specifically suited to them, and we don’t make you share with any other clients. This allows us to store your items with specialized equipment that ensures safety. It also eliminates detours, so we can finish the job more quickly.
- Proactive Planning: Whenever we make a delivery, we plan the route carefully ahead of time. This allows us to avoid major sources of delay and damage, thereby improving speed and safety in tandem.
- Continental Networking: We have coverage and vehicles in major cities spread throughout Canada and the United States. Not only does this let us begin shipping without hesitation, but it also makes it easy to send out a replacement vehicle if there’s ever a problem with the original one.
When We Do It
About Our Founder, Dan Boaz
HotShotTrucking.com has been able to deliver clients' orders so safely and consistently in large part thanks to the innovative ideas and sterling leadership of our founder, Dan Boaz. Drawing on more than three decades of experience in the transportation industry, Dan first created AirFreight.com. He has since founded HotShotTrucking.com, thereby extending into the trucking industry and offering services into every avenue of modern logistics.
Dan’s insight into the trucking industry comes from his experience working in it at every level. He started his career in 1985 as a UPS truck driver and from there worked his way into management. He eventually reached the rank of industrial engineer and later took on similar roles at Associated Global Systems and Vital Express. This background gives him a wealth of expertise in how to run a successful ground shipping company.
As a former driver, he knows the challenges truckers face on the road and how these difficulties can impact the overall success of a shipping operation. And as a manager who advanced to the highest levels of UPS and other delivery companies, he knows the constraints those companies face in meeting drivers’ demands. Dan has thus developed a strategy to give drivers everything they need to do their jobs safely and effectively.
Besides his insight into both levels of ground shipping, Dan benefits from a keen awareness of new technological opportunities. From the moment the Internet emerged on the scene, he saw its potential as a way to organize delivery services. He founded AirFreight.com on the realization that he could connect clients to air shipping services without purchasing planes. HotShotTrucking.com represents an extension of this strategy, offering the same convenient online service in a way that specifically targets those who need urgent ground shipments.
Dan’s innovative ideas and knack for spotting opportunity continue to serve all clients of HotShotTrucking.com and its affiliates. By regularly raising the standards of safety, speed, and quality, he helps companies throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico meet their shipping needs and operate at full capacity.
