Training and safety are paramount in transportation. PTG is collaborating with Amarillo College to train and equip warehouse volunteers in becoming licensed CDL holders. Fourteen applicants have graduated into the ranks of commercial operators with more coming on board in the next months.
New digital routing, equipment tracking and dispatching hardware and software systems have been completed and implemented for 2014. The new upgrades will pursue cost saving efficiencies, maximize use of delivery equipment and enhance safety of our drivers.
