The town is located near the heart of the state, making it a critical supply point for trade moving through Illinois. Hot Shot Trucking offers the logistics services to keep Springfield fully supplied, enhancing not only the city’s economy, but that of the entire state.
Not only do we serve Springfield proper, but we also ship into and out of Decatur, Effingham, Champaign, Bloomington, Galesburg, Hannibal, Burlington, and Quincy. In this way, we keep the entire capitol area connected, ensuring swift, safe logistics for all of Illinois.
In addition to being a center of governance and logistics for the State of Illinois, Springfield is also a major medical hub. As the home of Memorial Medical Center, St. John’s Hospital, and the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, the town needs regular shipments of pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, and other critical healthcare supplies. This creates a number of shipping challenges. Many medicines are highly perishable, requiring carriers to store them with specialized equipment and to ship them as quickly as possible. At the same time, carriers cannot sacrifice safety for speed, lest they end up damaging the drugs and devices that they are transporting. These difficulties are only made worse by the fact that there are so many other shipments traveling through Springfield, increasing the potential for blocked or congested roads.
Hot Shot Trucking knows how to navigate these and all other shipping challenges. As a hot shot freight company that has served hundreds of companies from dozens of industries, we have no trouble keeping Springfield’s medical providers, government offices, and other organizations supplied.
