Situated in the Puget Sound region just over thirty miles from Seattle, Tacoma is widely recognized for being one of the most livable cities in the modern United States. The city has made a concerted effort to upgrade its waterfront, public transit system, and other amenities and infrastructure. This has produced a community that is as convenient as it is efficient, making it the perfect site for business investment. From healthcare to manufacturing to energy to lumber extraction, a cornucopia of companies take advantage of Tacoma’s infrastructure and workforce. With these companies come the investments and expertise to bring all of the Puget Sound region to new heights of productivity.
HotShotTrucking.com helps Tacoma achieve these new heights by providing swift hot shot trucking service. An experienced logistics broker with detailed knowledge of the needs of eastern Washington, we can resolve any supply disruption your business encounters in no more than 24 hours. We have amassed the resources to coordinate a quick shipment from any point on the continent, be it in Mexico, in Canada, or in any of the fifty US states. Regardless of the nature of your shipping needs, HotShotTrucking.com is there to fill them immediately and comprehensively.
Tacoma has invested heavily in its infrastructure, including roads and highways for the benefit of its carriers. But the trouble with shipping infrastructure is that demand has a tendency to quickly outstrip supply. As new roadways become available, local businesses eagerly order new supplies, leading more carriers to try to get into the city. Soon, the increase in traffic outstrips the increase in road space, and the same traffic jams that motivated infrastructure improvements in the first place are back in full force. Thus, no matter how heavily Tacoma invests in its highways and infrastructure, local businesses still have to have a plan for when their trucks get delayed or disrupted.
HotShotTrucking.com provides that plan for you. Our hot shot trucking service is available to businesses in Tacoma and throughout the Puget Sound region whenever they’re in need of an emergency delivery. We broker shipments at the highest possible speed, skirting around storms and traffic to get you the items you need before you suffer any loss in productivity. By providing a backstop for your standard shipping arrangements, we ensure that no amount of traffic congestion is enough to derail your business or threaten your bottom line.
To say that HotShotTrucking.com provides a backup plan is to say that we are, primarily, in the business of planning. We go into every order with extensive knowledge of the Puget Sound region, its roads, its weather patterns, and its traffic bottlenecks. We keep this information up to date, responding to any change in infrastructure and any new sources of demand. This way, we don’t have to waste time comparing routes into Tacoma for a given time and day— we’ll already know the best route to take! We thus have the ability to respond quickly to your order and promptly set your delivery in motion.
Planning avoids unnecessary delays, but we also cut down on necessary delays, that is, delays that are incorporated into the structure of the delivery process. The largest such necessary delay is typically the need to get to your starting point in the first place, which takes up half the journey if you’re driving out there from Tacoma. We avoid this delay by keeping a network of trucks and vans ready to go from any starting point, so that we’ll never be more than two hours’ distance from your supplies. We’ll be able to load your items almost as soon as we receive the order, and thus can spend the bulk of our time on the return journey.
Besides the trip out to your supplies, another structural delay is the need for truckers to stop their trucks overnight and sleep. We do away with this delay by assigning our truckers in pairs on any delivery long enough that we can reasonably expect our drivers to need to stop and sleep. By pairing up our truckers, we give each a chance to sleep while the other one takes the wheel. As a result, our trucks can stay on the road at all hours while both truckers remain completely rested. We thus eliminate many hours’ worth of delays with a simple driving arrangement.
Having cut down on structural delays, we also minimize the possibility of some unexpected disruption during the delivery process. Every vehicle in the HotShotTrucking.com fleet has an advanced tracking device attached, which tells us that vehicle’s precise location. Using this technology, we can keep track of which part of its route each vehicle is on and which part it’s about to switch onto. We’ll then look to weather and traffic reports to that next leg of the route. Should we find evidence of icy, road damage, closures, severe storms, or traffic standstills, we’ll switch the truck to an alternate route that isn’t facing these problems. This means that even the unexpected can’t get between you and your goods.
