We have assembled a team of drivers and support staff, which are among the best in the industry. Our business is a service business, and the quality of the people is the key ingredient. Our compensation package, which is one of the highest in the industry, attracts and retains top talent. We don’t train and hire inexperienced drivers. We screen applicants carefully for experience, safety, organization, professionalism and service. Our drivers are experienced professionals with clean records. As a result of these efforts, the ACT team consistently and safely meets agreed upon delivery schedules over 99% of the time. Our service is second to none. Recently, we achieved a 99.8% on time delivery rate. We provide a number of other value-added services, which include trailer pools and storage, on-site hostling, complete EDI support, and assigned sales and customer services representatives. By utilizing our premium services, shippers can improve efficiency and produce significant savings in their logistics and distribution chains, while insuring the absolute satisfaction of their customers.
Quality is embedded into our culture. We subject our quality system to constant statistical process analysis, including both internal and external audits. Our commitment to quality is reflected in our process driven approach, which follows ISO standards. Customers who are registered to QS 9000 or ISO 9000 will find their vendor evaluation process and response to corrective action reports seamless with ACT.
We put a premium on safe and legal operations. Our “by the book” company culture and emphasis on safety has allowed us to maintain an extremely safe and reliable operation to become one of the safest motor carriers in the industry. Our safety standards go beyond regulatory compliance. We are committed to protecting the safety of motorists on the road, our driver associates, and our customer’s cargo.
