Dick Lavy Trucking is headquartered in Bradford, Ohio but its truck transportation services go in all four directions. Trucks travel all the way to Minnesota, Kansas, Florida, and Maine, covering all points in between. The closer the location, the quicker our freight services can operate, delivering shipments in as little as one day when they’re within 500 miles of their origin location.
Once our shipments are on the road, we have the ability to follow each shipment. We use a combination of McLeod’s LoadMaster software and QUALCOMM’s communication technology to monitor our loads at all times. This allows us to quickly make route changes if an emergency arises, since we can always pinpoint the closest truck to a client’s location.
Our trucks are loaded with options to provide our drivers with comfort while they are on the road. All our trucks include:
- Tilt/Telescope Wheel
- Air Ride Seats on Both Sides
- Jake Brakes
- AM/FM Radio
- CD Players
- CB Mounts and Antennas Installed
The Best Drivers
Our drivers are among the best in the business for a reason. We provide competitive wages and great benefits, which attracts great drivers whenever we have a job opening. Unlike other freight shipping services, we encourage work-life balance for each of our employees. Drivers have most weekends off to spend with family and when they’re on the road, we ensure they have the best working conditions possible.
In addition to comfortable cabs and well-maintained trucks, our cargo freight services are 98 percent no touch freight. We don’t require drivers to deal with slip seating, which means when a driver sets up the truck a certain way, it stays that way week after week, month after month. We also provide paid orientation and referral bonuses to encourage them to recommend other talented drivers they know. All of this lets us provide top-quality freight services to our customers.
When your business needs dependable freight services, Dick Lavy Trucking is the company to call. We have a long history in the business and can bring that expertise to help you with all of your freight needs. Our drivers are skilled and reliable and will make sure your freight gets where it needs to go, when it needs to be there.
We utilize McLeod’s LoadMaster software and QUALCOMM’s communication technology to see where every shipment and truck is on the road at all the times.
