Dart’s ECO Fleet® prioritizes efficiency when transporting freight and reducing its carbon footprint. By utilizing innovative trailer and tractor designs, they can move the maximum amount of cargo with minimal fuel. Their Dart ECO Trailers® is designed to carry as much weight as possible per load while using the least fuel possible. This approach has made Dart’s ECO Fleet the most eco-friendly fleet in its industry.
In the 1980s, Dart created the “AdVANtageTM Trailers,” which were designed to carry a larger volume of freight per trailer load. This innovative development helped to decrease transportation expenses and reduce the number of trucks needed on the highways.
Dart’s approach to safety stands out and has proven to be highly successful. The “Ethics and Technique for the Professional DriverTM” program, created by Dart in the 1980s, has helped establish the company as one of the safest in the trucking industry.
In the 1970s, Dart introduced the irregular route model as a trailblazer in the trucking industry. This innovative approach not only enhanced the quality of service but also lowered costs for truckload shippers. Moreover, Dart was among the first to advocate for “Just-in-Time” truck service, which proved to be a game-changer for manufacturers looking to reduce their expenses.
Also, in the 1970s, Dart attempted to modernize its trucking operations by introducing computerization. They were ahead of the curve in implementing satellite communications technology and electronic logs, which helped improve safety and provide better information for shippers. Additionally, Dart was one of the pioneers in utilizing independent contractors, which opened up opportunities for small trucking businesses and gave drivers more of a stake in providing excellent customer service.
Dart is always looking for fresh, creative ideas to enhance customer satisfaction and advance service. They have tested various strategies over time, and while some have been incredibly effective, others have yet to meet expectations. However, their unwavering commitment to exploring new possibilities remains steadfast. They embrace the latest technologies and leverage them to their fullest potential.
