Haney Truck Line set for the long haul

Haney Truck Line announced it has begun taking deliveries of the first trucks in a multi-year fleet replacement program with Peterbilt Motors Company, a PACCAR company.

“The fleet replacement is part of Haney’s growth plan; in the past year alone, the company has recapitalized through its equity owner, Evergreen Pacific Partners; acquired Pacific Transportation; developed an industry-first pay-for-performance compensation plan and created a new brand,” haney said. “These steps have positioned the company for strong growth in 2015 and beyond.”

Haney noted its new operating structure has resulted in improvements in metrics across the board, including:

  • On-time delivery rates are consistently higher than 90%;

  • Average driver compensation is up nearly 10%, with the potential for nearly 100%;

  • Driver turnover is less than 30%, compared to industry averages of more than 90%;

  • In the trailing six months, its DOT-recordable accident rate is zero.

Haney recently completed a purchase for 41 Peterbilt Model 579s and 120 Hyundai trailers.

“We’ve done something that’s never been done in the industry – and that’s partner with our drivers to create a management and compensation plan that is driver-centric,” said Peter Carlander, president. “The results speak for themselves and show that when you have engaged and motivated drivers, you have safer operations, happier drivers and satisfied customers.”

Haney also recently unveiled its new brand, which is dominated by the shape of a star, representing the company’s internal work culture, which is defined as Safety, Teamwork, Accountability and Respect (STAR), according to the company.

“We’re pleased to partner with a respected and innovative carrier like Haney Truck Line,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president. “Their investment in Peterbilt’s Model 579 as their preferred fleet vehicle shows their commitment to quality, reliability and performance – all characteristics they demonstrate daily to their customers and their drivers and other team members.”
