EkoStinger would like to highlight our Kansas friends and one of our admired partners: Doug Bradley Trucking, Inc.
A family-owned and operated business since 1973, Doug Bradley Trucking is Always On Time. What started as Doug Bradley owning and operating a single truck has evolved to a fleet of more than 150 trucks and 500 OTR trailers. Their terminals in Kansas, Minnesota, and Kentucky have enabled their drivers to travel as far west as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as Portland, Maine.
Brothers Jamie and Jesse Bradley are now at the helm of the company -- and though they have grown substantially over the years, they still value personally connecting with customers, working closely with their team, and providing exceptional quality service.
Doug Bradley Trucking's focus on innovation has helped put them at the forefront of technological advancements in the trucking industry, leading them to a great partnership with EkoStinger that began in 2018. The aerodynamic design, durability, and fuel efficiency benefits of the Stinger System make for an innovative choice in trailer stability and protection.
"We're really the type that likes to come up with something new. I'm always researching cutting-edge products to save money and fuel -- and I came across this strange YouTube video and thought, 'Man, that's really interesting.' I've told everybody in our company, that as we move forward, anything new we purchase is gonna get a Stinger."
- Jesse Bradley, Vice President, Doug Bradley Trucking, Inc.
Since Doug Bradley Trucking has northern terminals their drivers often drive in bad weather conditions. They've always had issues with conventional trailer skirts getting pushed around in strong crosswinds, causing stability concerns. Additionally, trailer skirts can get damaged cutting corners short when there is a solid snowbank nearby. Thanks to the placement, design, and operational toughness of EkoStinger's trailer aerodynamics products, their drivers don't have to worry about that now.
The future is bright for Doug Bradley Trucking -- over the last 3-4 years they've increased their fleet size by 50% and expanded to run flatbeds, refrigerated, dry freight, intermodal, and oversized trailers.
"EkoStinger has been excellent to work with. You always get that return on investment because it's always where it needs to be."
Doug Bradley Trucking, thank you for your continued support, for your partnership, and for choosing innovation. It's great to see you guys grow!
