All drivers operating our vehicles have years of experience transporting in the region, and many have long tenures working with the company. Training is paramount to our success and our road freight drivers undergo regular instruction in accordance with our training matrix at our in-house facility. Driving is restricted to daylight hour only, and drivers are monitored to ensure they are in a safe parking area by sunset.
