At Satchell Creek Express Inc., we operate a modest fleet of 35 trucks, managed by a driver who maintains an active presence on the road, drawing from firsthand experience. Over the past quarter-century, our focus has remained consistent: transporting refrigerated freight for a dedicated set of customers. Our operations are reinforced by reliable year-round contracts, ensuring stability. We understand the pivotal role that both our drivers and customers play – they are the cornerstone of our enterprise. We hold the firm belief that the shared goals of success, professionalism, and safety are integral to both our drivers and the overall company as a whole.
Our Regional drivers cover freight routes across the Midwest, Plains, Southwest (excluding CA), and Southeast regions, with our central hub situated in Wichita, KS. Return trips from these states are directed towards the Southeast, encompassing areas such as OK, TX, and KS. Notably, we do not operate in the upper East Coast region.
For streamlined operations, our fleet is equipped with Motive™ Electronic Logging Devices, ensuring effective communication and record-keeping. Our trucks are governed at 72 mph for optimal efficiency. Additionally, our vehicles are equipped with navigation systems, Elite Toll Passes, and auxiliary power units (APUs).
The backbone of our fleet consists predominantly of Freightliner Cascadia trucks, all powered by Detroit DD15 engines. These trucks are available in both automatic transmissions. To support our operations, we maintain a comprehensive in-house shop offering a range of services, including routine maintenance, engine work, transmission rebuilds, regen services, and bodywork.
We prioritize driver comfort and convenience, offering a dedicated driver's lounge at our shop. The lounge is equipped with WIFI, Cable TV, and a stocked fridge with complimentary snacks and meals, creating a welcoming environment while drivers await their service or maintenance needs.
