Truck BridgeOur Fleet

Watsontown Trucking Company’s fleet consists of over 235 trucks and 700 trailers that can carry virtually anything to anywhere in the continental U.S. Our fleet of Volvo Model 670 trucks, with automatic transmissions, is constantly being updated and maintained, with new equipment being purchased yearly. In 2011 alone, the WTC purchased thirty-five Model Year 2011 trucks.

WTC runs routes every single week across the lower 48 states and into Canada. The company has particularly differentiated itself with regard to shipments east of the Mississippi, including New Jersey and New York City. WTC employs a select group of drivers who specialize in delivery to NJ and NYC. Our drivers have the opportunity to be part of that select group, if they choose to do so.

Facilities

Watsontown Trucking Company offers safe, on-time freight service to any point in the 48 states from our main operations center. Our new facility is located on 35 acres in Milton, PA.

Stability

WTC is large enough that you can grow with the company, but small enough that we know you and your family. Our drivers are at the core of what we do and are a big reason we are able to take on the challenges others avoid. When you work for us, you can be proud of the company you represent.

Nearly 30 of WTC’s drivers have been with the company for a decade or more. More than 20 drivers have earned the recognition of driving over one million miles.

We provide strategic services including:

  • Team opportunities
  • Dedicated contract carriage opportunities

Our drivers receive competitive pay and benefits, enjoy steady weekly miles, and drive well-maintained trucks with the latest technology.

Performance-Based Bonuses, Holiday and Vacation Pay

Our drivers are rewarded for efficiency and safety. Yearly bonuses are based on superior performance – that includes everything from how the trucks are driven (wear and tear), fuel efficiency and on-time deliveries.

Holiday pay and vacation pay are calculated based on a worker’s average weekly wage.

Communication

Each truck is equipped with satellite tracking and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) interfacing technologies. Satellite based systems allow us to fully monitor, track, and improve the performance of our fleet and efficiency of our client’s shipments. These innovative technologies also allow the home office to communicate with the driver, in case issues may arise. This gives our drivers peace of mind.

Drivers also have access to GPS routing in the trucks, so point-to-point directions can be sent to a specific truck. This gives our drivers confidence – so even if they are unfamiliar with an area, the home office can send detailed directions.

WTC also offers each employee a company cell phone, or will contribute to an employee’s personal cell phone plan.

WTC drivers are each assigned to a regional operations manager, guaranteeing one-on-one attention.

Maintenance24/7 On-Site Garage

22 experienced, highly trained technicians keep our equipment operational 24 hours a day – 7 days a week. They staff our new maintenance facility in Milton, PA.

All trucks are maintained on a schedule, so drivers need not worry about keeping track of what service needs to be done, and when. Maintenance ensures that our trucks perform at an optimal level at all times for our drivers.
