"Before using Trux it could take hours calling and waiting for calls back from other companies to see if they had available trucks.”
- Lincoln Dunlap, Operations Manager, T&K Asphalt Services, Inc.
T&K Asphalt Services, Inc. is the largest parking lot maintenance company in New England. With more than 125 employees, the company offers paving, sealcoating, line striping, concrete, construction and repair services for commercial and residential properties.
Limited by weather constraints in the northeast, T&K Asphalt Services, Inc. is impacted by seasonality and is busy throughout the summer and fall, followed by a quiet winter and early spring season. Many of its 125 employees are year-round, which is rare for the industry. But during the busy months, finding extra haulers can be a challenge. Turning a job down because of labor shortages isn’t an option.
“In the past when we were short on trucks for some of our paving or prep jobs we would have to call around to plants and other trucking companies to see if they had any trucks available to work for us,” says Lincoln. This was a time consuming process that didn’t always guarantee success.
With Trux Find, Lincoln and his team are able to post jobs on the Trux Marketplace. He’s found that in some cases, shifts fill in minutes and that his team can concentrate on other things, including operations, administrative tasks, and sales.
By leveraging Trux, T&K Asphalt Services, Inc. has access to additional haulers, on demand. For a company that is focused on investing in its employees, and prides itself in a high employee retention rate, an added bonus is that “Trux allows us to have more trucks when we need them. We don’t have to hire someone that we won’t have work for every day,” says Lincoln.
