Transportation You Can Depend On
We haul nearly one billion pounds of produce annually, over half billion pounds were bulk potatoes processed into French fries, frozen food products and snack foods. Green beans, cranberries, sweet corn and carrots comprised the other half billion pounds.
Plainfield Trucking is now considered the largest raw products transporter in the state. We operate 80 over-the-road company units, and contract with additional independent contractors and carriers. Our operating area is coast-to-coast, with the heaviest volume going to the Midwest, South and West. We operate out two terminals, one in Plainfield, WI and the other in Markesan, WI.
Customer service is a primary focus of our operation. With over 60 years in business, we’ve built many large corporate relationships. These accounts have continued to remain strong and beneficial to both sides. Plainfield Trucking generates over $20 million in revenue per year, hauling over 35,000 loads per year and spots approximately 30,000 loads per year.
We are a very unique, specialized carrier. Our customers have come to rely on us because they know we have the ability to respond to any type of need within a short period of time. We have the equipment, personnel, experience and knowledge to handle all your transportation needs. Customers can be assured of prompt pick-ups and on-time deliveries. Safe, efficient drivers and our knowledgeable dispatch staff work with our customers to provide the best services available.
We leverage technology with the latest in software and products to provide our customers with regular location and shipment updates. Our trucks are equipped with satellite tracking and driver communication systems.
We also provide spotting services to our larger customers. We’re involved with the product from the time it is harvested in the field to when it is packaged and delivered to consumers. Because we are a full-service transportation company, we do whatever it takes to get the product from the fields, to the plant and shipped out. The level of service that we provide our customers is an essential tool in our marketing strategy due to the “commodity-type” nature of our service. Essentially, we are more than a trucking company to our customers – we are the competitive edge.
