In the trucking industry today, Robert E. Low is a big name who started Prime Time Transportation Inc. in Urbana, Missouri in 1970 with one dump truck. Robert's vision of providing the definitive in customer satisfaction enabled Prime to expand rapidly to what it became by 1980: a $50 million operation (when the company relocated corporate headquarters to Springfield, Missouri). The spring of 1998 brought new life to the business in terms of expansion: a high-tech 10-bay shop and 12,000-square foot expansion of administrative offices was completed. This includes a state-of-the-art training center used for driver associate as well as in-house associate orientation classes, in addition to PrimeÃƒ‚Ã¢€Ã¢„Ãƒ‚¢s ACE II Program, which provides ongoing career development training. Prime remained resolute and diligent in their efforts while laying emphasis initially on refrigerated business and later expanding base to include flatbed and brokerage services. Cost controls, customer service enhancements and an aggressive effort to recruit the most qualified personnel in the industry enabled Prime to prosper further while providing superior and reliable transportation services. Prime provided reliable and safe, continuous on-time service to its expanding international customer base while it responded to feedback from driver associates and designed a system to allow trucks to fuel, get a complete DOT inspection, pick up necessary permits and supplies and get out within 30 minutes. The company has since then made a concerted effort to recruit and retain the best trucking professionals, those who drive and those who support drivers, in the business. The changes taking place at Prime in the next several months truly are evidence of the companyÃƒ‚Ã¢€Ã¢„Ãƒ‚¢s ongoing dedication to provide shippers with a level of service and support which they cannot receive anywhere else in North America. PrimeÃƒ‚Ã¢€Ã¢„Ãƒ‚¢s focus is on its number one objective: to deliver all shipment on time: damage-free. Without exception.
