A major refrigerated truckload carrier based in Olathe KS, TransAm Trucking Inc uses leading-edge technologies to squeeze maximum performance and efficiency out of its 1,400 tractors and 2,400 refrigerated trailers. It has been a winning strategy that has brought steady growth for the carrier.
Russ McElliott has built TransAm Trucking into a tech leader in refrigerated trucking.
TransAm Trucking was one of the first to buy a large number of tractors with the PACCAR MX engine, ordering more than 1,000 Kenworth T660s powered by the engine in 2010.
TransAm’s fleet also includes Kenworth T700 tractors with the PACCAR MX engine. Utility 3000R trailers have Thermo King refrigeration.
Rated at 485 hp, the PACCAR MX engine has contributed to a 12% to 14% improvement in driver retention at TransAm Trucking.
