CLEAN AND RELIABLE FLEET

New Light Weight Trucks 2.3.2020

Jetco is committed to doing what we can to sustain and protect the environment and health and safety of the public.

We're proud to operate a newer fleet with 80% of our trucks being less than 5 years old. A newer fleet means our trucks meet or exceed emission regulations, protecting the environment through increased fuel economy and cleaner burning vehicles.

"The Houston Freightliner team is proud to work with Jetco Delivery as they continue to invest in Freightliner's leading technology for safety and fuel economy."
- Bob Garwood, President, Houston Freightliner

Maximized Payloads

Jetco's experienced team helps our clients maximize payloads. That means we're not shipping air- translating into real cost savings, fewer emissions and greater efficiency for you. Our mix of lighter weight equipment, permits and professional drivers means we can haul heavier payloads. Our 40-foot chassis weighs less than 5,000 pounds, nearly 2,000 pounds less than most standard 40-foot chassis.

More weight Fewer trucks required

Online Access - Reduce Paper Waste

All paperwork is electronic! Our commercial vehicle operators (CVOs) and office team work together to ensure you receive emailed copies of PODs, invoices and statements in a timely manner. Available upon request, we can also provide customizable reporting on your projects, as well as schedule quarterly reviews to ensure we've optimized our client relationships to run as efficiently as we can for you.

Using Existing Capacity

Jetco's freight brokerage team has tried and true processes for planning logistics, scheduling loads, and matching trusted, carefully screened carriers with cargo. By using capacity already existing in the marketplace, we help reduce the number of empty trucks on the roads.

Beyond Trucks and Service

Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond our efforts to run cleaner fleets and use technology to maximize our efficiency and safety. Each and every Jetco team member lives and breathes our core values - safety, accountability, respect, teamwork, and candor - which are woven into every interaction we have with each other and customers.

It extends to the community as well. Throughout the year, we proudly support the Mayor's Back to School event, Wreaths Across America, and several regional causes that have deep personal meeting to our employees.
