The 2000’s – More Services and Security
By the 2000’s, there was further development; New 4 axle van trailers for hauling heavy freight. After 9/11 new security related programs were adopted: US Homeland Security’s FAST and C-TPAT programs in 2003; CBSA’s CSA and PIP programs in 2008. These programs included numerous upgrades in security including employee vetting, a fenced yard, and security cameras. Satellite Tracking was implemented so clients could be secure in the knowledge what we were watching the progress of their loads.
The 2010’s and Today
The 2010’s brought further changes; The addition of brand hew heated 5 axle SPIF compliant dry van trailers allow Street Cartage to carry heavier loads knowing that freight sensitive to the cold would be safe and secure. Also, Cherie received her WBE (Woman Owned Business) certification for company’s striving to support diversity in the trucking industry. Our in-house shop staff doubled in size to further improve maintenance and reduce down time. And paperless driver logs were implemented, saving drivers time and reducing their paperwork burden.
Today, our fully staffed terminal of behind the scenes movers and shakers include office support needed to process the mountains of documentation needed to facilitate our clients flow of goods across the border, along with a full staff of certified mechanics and apprentices keeping everything rolling.
