Known to many as the City of Medicine, Durham has always been the thought and development center of the Tar Heel State. The city is home to Duke University, one of the two greatest educational institutions in North Carolina, and just a short drive away from the other great educational institution, UNC Chapel Hill. These institutions and the skilled workers they produce have attracted a wave of investment into the community, with companies as diverse as SaS, GlaxoSmith Kline, IBM, BioCryst, and IQVIA all setting up key facilities here or nearby. These investments in turn encourage more students and research facilities to move here, leading to a cycle of continued success and development.
This cycle of success can only continue as long as Triangle area businesses have access to essential supplies, and that’s getting harder and harder the more this region develops. Luckily, HotShotTrucking.com is here to fill in the logistical gaps. As a hot shot trucking Durham broker, we coordinate rapid deliveries into the City of Medicine and all its neighbors. Our vast array of shipping resources and expert coordination team come together to guarantee swift results for all of our clients. No matter what items you need shipped and how many obstacles stand in the way, we’ll complete the delivery with time to spare so you can get back to producing.
If you’ve ever tried to drive between Durham and Chapel Hill at five in the afternoon, you’ll know what a nightmare logistics are in this region. The Triangle has been growing rapidly in population and productivity, and has quickly expanded beyond the capacity of its local roads. As a result, traffic is regularly backed up for hours from commuters alone. When carriers try to make their deliveries in the middle of all this, they find themselves severely delayed, causing their Durham clients to lose thousands of dollars in time and unused capacity. As a Durham business, you’re bound to run into this problem at least occasionally, no matter how carefully you’ve planned your deliveries.
HotShotTrucking.com is there to resolve these problems as soon as they arise. We’re an experienced hot shot trucking expert that has spent more than a decade serving Durham, as well as other Triangle communities like Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Cary. We’re acquainted with all the local roads and highways, and can plot a swift delivery into the city at any time of day or night. Trust in our trucks and personnel and you’ll never be short on supplies for long.
The key to successful hot shot shipments is planning, which is why we invest so heavily in plotting out routes throughout the region. We’re familiar with traffic patterns along each road in Durham and the broader Triangle, as well as in the Charlotte area, the Triad, and all other metro areas that frequently ship to Durham. We also pay close attention to weather forecasts and road quality reports so that we know exactly what conditions to expect when we’re out on the road. Thanks to this wealth of information, we’re able to rapidly put together a delivery plan the moment we receive your order. While our truck is traveling to your starting point and loading up your goods, we’ll be comparing every possible route between that starting point and Durham. We will choose the route that offers the fastest speeds with the lowest risk of delay, ensuring the best possible results for your shipment.
Besides planning quick routes, we’re also adept at putting those plans into motion quickly and effectively. One way we’re able to do this is by stationing trucks and other delivery vehicles at strategic locations all over the continent. From Mexico to Canada to all of the United States, we have vehicles and the personnel to operate them ready to go at any moment. Thus, no matter what location you’re shipping from, we can get a truck out there in two hours or less. That truck will load your items immediately and then set out for Durham at the fastest legal speed. Quickly reaching and loading your goods allows us to perform deliveries without any initial delay, thus halving the total delivery time. No matter where your starting point is, we’ll be able to reach it with ease.
Not only can our two drivers count on one another for support, but they also have the aid of a centralized coordination office. Our communications team monitors each truck throughout the journey, taking advantage of advanced tracking tech that reports the vehicles’ position at every moment. The communications team triangulates this data with traffic and weather reports to make sure that our trucks aren’t about to run into an icy road, closed route, traffic jam, or other barrier to delivery. Whenever they find such a barrier, they’ll radio any driver who’s about to run into it and let them know how to get onto an alternate route. The drivers steer around the barrier and keep the trucks on track, eliminating delays. Our communications team also takes calls from customers, updating them on the position of their orders, likely arrival times, and any other data clients want, whenever they want it.
