Vision

The company understands that successful trucking starts with outstanding professional truck drivers. Each driver has his or her strengths and unique abilities, which can fit into the unique needs of a customer – GP Transco plans the delivery of freight according to the drivers who fit the specific needs of the customer best. Technology is key - the dash cameras installed on each GP Transco truck are equipped with AI capability, resulting in an extremely safe fleet. All GP Transco trucks are equipped with collision mitigation systems that notify the driver if the truck is moving outside of the lane or approaching the vehicle ahead too quickly.

Each GP Transco truck and trailer is equipped with a GPS tracking unit, giving both office staff and customers an exact location on each load. Each customer has access to a birds-eye view look at a map showing each of their current loads in transit with GP Transco, as well as the status, ETA, and more. Customers and brokers have access to a live map of all available GP Transco trucks, including the contact information for each dispatcher – this makes it easy to find a truck where and when a customer needs to. This advanced ecosystem is made possible through the company’s in-house developed TMS System, which streamlines operations in a cloud-based environment. GP Transco is a 5-time Inc. 5000 company and a 4-time Crain's Fast 50 company; the 520-truck carrier has plans for steady growth and continued efficiency improvements.
