Carrier Spotlight September 2014 | AAA Cooper Transportation

October 14, 2014

GlobalTranz is proud to have AAA Cooper Transportation recognized as our September featured Carrier Spotlight. Inbound Logistics Magazine recently listed them as a 2014 Top 100 Motor Carrier. GlobalTranz also awarded them our Southeast Region 2013 Carrier of the Year Award.

The AAA Cooper journey began in the 1930’s when John H. “Red” Dove started in the transportation industry hauling logs for his father. By 1955, Mr. Dove had purchased P.C. White Truck Lines and changed the name to AAA Motor Lines. Later, his sons, Earl and Mack, received their degrees in transportation and joined the family business between 1959 and 1962.

For decades to come, there were tight regulations put in place by the Interstate Commerce Commission, a former independent agency of the U.S. government. Therefore, they decided to purchase other operating routes, or companies that possessed routes who were not operating to their fullest potential to grow their own company. AAA Motor Lines Inc....

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2014

September 15, 2014

As National Truck Driver Appreciation Week gets nearer, September 14-20, we want to take a step back and reflect on the importance of one of the most overlooked assets in the freight and logistics industry. If it weren’t for the countless trucks moving freight, the industry would grind to a halt. Take a moment to consider that computer you’re staring at, the chair you’re sitting on, and even that last paycheck you deposited into your account… if you are in the freight and logistics game, these things have come in part by the relentless work of the common truck driver. That being said, the industry as we know it is facing a time of distress.

The American Trucking Associations (ATA) reports that there is an estimated shortage of 30,000 drivers in the U.S. This is believed to be in part due to drivers having less pay and more time away from family. In 2013, the changes to the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations began requiring drivers to stop more which makes the hours on the...
