Owner and Founder Sunny Samara grew up in a culture where trucking and farming were the most popular ways to make a living. He began his career in the industry at age 22, purchasing his first truck and hauling for a few companies throughout California. In 2006, he founded his own transport company in Yuba City, CA, that now operates with over 1,000 tractors and 4,000 plated trailers throughout the Western Region.
Samara understands that drivers want to work for carriers that show them respect. He believes that this can be accomplished through quality communication and ensuring that each driver has direct access to their driver manager. This way, they are always aware of the status of their shipments and can quickly address any concerns or questions that may arise.
He is particularly proud of the on-time delivery service scorecards that his company has consistently achieved. He attributes this success to their investment in new technology, a commitment to excellence and a firm belief that the customer is always right.
