EXCELLENT EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE LOGS!
This is a short and long-haul trucking company, hauling refrigerated and frozen goods (mostly produce), household goods, and consumer products back and forth from SoCal destinations throughout California, Washington and Texas. The business’ large customers include Costco, Kroger, Amazon via Echo and Lineage. The company obtains their loads from a large, well-established freight forwarders through the freight load boards. The dispatcher (who works from home) schedules the drivers and arranges for turnaround loads for almost 100% of trips. Each trip is straightforward: pickup loaded containers, deliver them to the customers and pick up the return loads.
Their 3 full-time drivers (1099s) operate company trucks and are included in the asset sale. One is OTR (over the road) and handles the long haul routes to WA and TX. One handles the 2-day routes, largely handling CA deliveries with the occasional long-haul. The third handles the local CA day routes. The drivers get paid per job, ranging from $300 per day out (OTR) to $250 per day out (Local). The business is selling off 3 trucks and 5 trailers; they are parked overnight in a yard in Mira Loma, close to the drivers’ homes, the railyard, Amazon, Costco, Kroger and many other distribution centers.
The owner had major health issues in 2021 and needs to downsize his professional life, so it’s time to sell off some of his assets. The current owner has built a fabulous foundation (largely through word-of-mouth and their broker relationships), a buyer of the assets can step in and utilize the freight load boards, build a website, set up social media, and build their online presence to drive revenues. In addition, apply for port and railyard access and increase load options. In today’s era of backlogged supply chain, ports and railyards are saturated and need more local trucking companies to move product!! Best of all the owner will train and support a new owner so they can immediately generate revenues!
This is an asset sale of equipment, seasoned drivers, and a yard to store the trucks. All of the trucks are well-maintained and CARB compliant!
