The business owns a sizable fleet of trucks and operates more than 100 service centers around the country.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration performed 4,473 inspections from 2020 to 2022. Inspectors found more than 90 hours of service violations, 25 driver fitness violations and more than 500 violations for risky driving. Three cases of drugs or alcohol use were also uncovered.
