Over its 70 year history, WTC has grown into a reputable, dependable business with a fleet of more than 235 trucks and 700 trailers. Our fleet is equipped with innovative onboard communication systems such as satellite tracking and EDI interfacing.
By using our freight volume and taking advantage of backhaul lanes, we can help find revenue-sharing opportunities to improve your profitability.
Our Employees Make the Difference
Our drivers are carefully screened and many of them have been with the company for many years. 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.
WTC also employs an administrative staff of over 25 people to manage day-to-day operations and assist drivers if there is an issue when they are on the road.
Our Areas of Focus
Our Solo Truckload services are based around four key industry areas:
- Building Products
- Consumer Goods
Customers can also request to have trailer pools, increasing the productivity and efficiency at their distribution centers.
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.
Regardless of your trucking needs, you can rest assured that your shipment will be delivered where it needs to be – safely and on schedule.

All employees maintain a high level of safety as reflected in our CSA 2010 Scores and a satisfactory rating with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Safety Department in Milton, PA continually monitors and enforces our policies and procedures, ensuring a high level of quality, service, and dependability.
Our Innovative Technologies
Anyone with a fleet of trucks knows that there is a science and art to fuel efficiency. WTC has an entire staff dedicated to increasing the fuel efficiency of the fleet – from adding and adjusting wind deflectors on the trucks, to monitoring tire pressure, the team is constantly measuring changes to fuel economy.
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 fleet, in case issues may arise. This gives our drivers and customers peace of mind.
