New Trucking Equipment
One of the main reasons drivers love working for Keller Trucking is that our tractors, on average, are less than 30 months old. “The reason I stay at Keller Trucking is the great pay and benefits, great maintenance program, new equipment, and they treat their drivers with respect,” says driver Eric Frost. Driver Cary Fugitt adds: “I get great miles, good pay, safety bonuses, and fuel incentives. The equipment is top notch.” And according to driver Shane Holmes, “Maintenance issues are taken care of right away to keep me moving and making money.”
Keller Trucking employs SquareRigger preventative maintenance software to ensure that our customers’ valued freight and our driving pros reach their destination safely and on schedule.
We work hard to reduce our carbon footprint in other ways as well. We’re a Registered SmartWay Carrier Partner with the Environmental Protection Agency, demonstrating our commitment to increase efficiency and fuel economy. Keller Trucking has been recognized as an EPA SmartWay High Performer across all five performance metrics of CO2, NOx, PM, grams per mile and grams per ton-mile. Just over two percent of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets so cleanly and efficiently that they make the SmartWay High Performer list for all metrics.

Our newest tractor, the Freightliner Cascadia, is lightweight, provides cleaner emissions, and greater fuel economy, which helps preserve the environment. The lightweight Cascadia, when combined with our specially designed lightweight and durable trailers, allows us to offer capacity up to 52,000 pounds per load through our Heavy Haul Freight Program.
We use Auxiliary Power Units and driver incentive programs to reduce idle time. Fuel efficiency is increased using super single tires and aerodynamic side skirts. The Cummins engines burn clean and our trucks are governed at 65 mph to reduce emissions. We recycle old oil and tires as part of our commitment to a cleaner, better planet.
Technology helps us work smarter, not harder. In addition to offering modern, well-maintained tractors and trailers with core efficiencies built in, we have also installed PeopleNet on-board electronic recorders and SkyBitz satellite tracking systems, so we know where your freight is at all times. When combined with our use of DriveCam, our equipment is second-to-none on the road, one of the safest and most secure. SquareRigger Fleet Management Software ensures that our fleet stays in tip-top shape, running smoothly at all times. The KeyPoint transportation management keeps us on top of load entries, truck searches, operational controls, dispatch, tracking, and carrier profiles. Thanks to our technology, we see 8% fewer empty miles and 5.6% increased revenue per mile.
Keller Trucking operates over 150 tractors and 450 trailers and offers, as an extension of our asset fleet, a select group of highly vetted partner carriers through our affiliate Keller Freight Solutions. We hold them to the same industry standards as we do our own fleet. We have a heavy haul freight program, as well as spotting and shuttle services. During trying times when accessing capacity can be a major challenge, consider Keller Trucking and Keller Freight Solutions to become part of your transportation strategy.

Wanted to take a minute to let you know how much I appreciate the Keller drivers that come into the Dal Tile plant in Fayette, Alabama. In my 33 years working in shipping I have never worked with a better group of drivers. They always know what to do when they get to the plant and always have a great attitude. I really enjoy working this group of drivers. Hope I get to work with them for many more. Especially James, Harold and Harlan.
