Our Commitment to a Sustainable Environment
Delivering outstanding transportation solutions at the right time every time includes our commitment to Sustainability.

SJ is continually upgrading our fleet to include the newest and best engine technology in an effort to run as clean as possible. The introduction of Diesel Exhaust Fluid into our engines is one example of technology that protects our air by reducing the emission of Nitrogen Oxides. Additionally, through the use of dispatch technology we monitor idle time, miles per gallon and miles run in an effort to maximize fuel usage and reduce overall emissions.

Our technological systems provide detailed load management resources, carrier management, real-time driver/driving management, automatic billing, asset management and preventative maintenance management for all equipment.
From the moment a load is tendered, SJ Transportation has the capability to track every movement of the scheduled shipment in real time. All shipments are reviewed by status for shipment alerts with detailed information accessible from the load board. Performance is monitored constantly with real-time alerts generated for loads at the risk of being late. Details on current location and driving time can be viewed with a single click. Customers also have the ability to track their own shipments by fleet, details per tractor, delivery locations, etc.
With SJ Transportation’s one of a kind software platform billing can be automated. Flexible tariffs can be created based on any information within the system. This automation reduces billing mistakes by applying the tariffs to completed loads. Invoices can be reviewed and released individually, by batch or by workflow. Supplemental invoices can be created for additional charges, resulting in faster billing that can transmit invoices via paper, email or EDI on a per customer basis.
Preventative maintenance is completely automated with electronically scheduling units to optimize performance. Repair history is tracked in detail, over the road and in-house. Mechanic performance is analyzed for estimated repair time and up to date reports are generated for total cost of ownership, vehicle condition, status and more.

Driver OTR (Current Employee) – August 2017
Growing company hauling hazmat in vans, tankers or roll-offs, you get pick your type of work but I did all so earning power was better.
The owner is straight up and used to drive here so he gets it. May sound corny but working here is like being part of a family. They advertise average driver pay is $65000 a year but I did better, just need to be willing to work. Nice trucks, Petes and Macks that pull. All good I plan to retire from here.
Pros: Good people, good money, good equipment, good home-time usually every weekend
Cons: Not much local work available
Fun and inspirational
