Welcome To Red Dog Family
Specific Value-Added Distribution
“Jack of all trades, master of none” -- anonymous
Instead of saying we’re the best at everything, we take time to carve out specific areas we are experts in, and that is our value to you. Whether it be Food & Beverage, Modular buildings, or a customer above ground custom tanks, we have taken the time, and developed our expertise to be able to add value through our seasoned experience with that commodity and required equipment.
Food & Beverage
Our portfolio of clients in the food and beverage space range from smaller, family-owned food mfgs to publicly traded, worldwide brands. Our Refrigerated distribution team works to maintain relationships and leverage capacity for both refrigerated and frozen FTL. In addition to food distribution, our beverage distribution unit that runs daily shuttles for both inbound and outbound loads for major brewery + soda companies.
Building Materials + Jobsite Deliveries
At Red Dog’s inception, flatbed work was, and remains to be a big sector of our business. Of the thousands of loads moved per month, about 65% of them move on flatbeds. In addition to our flatbed expertise, we have mastered the art of communication because several clients rely on that careful planning and communication to make delivery within a short window to a remote job-site. Our operations team understands the time sensitive nature of these loads and know that making the crew wait onsite is a failure. Red Dog makes hundreds of job-site deliveries per year and is proud to be the leading provider for this time sensitive work.
Modular Buildings + Tanks
Another interesting segment we focus on is the movement of (BRM) blast resistant modular buildings and AST + UST above & below ground storage tanks. Both building and tank movements are intricate due to the weight and dimensions of the materials and often will require permits for both heigh, and width. In some cases, a pilot car is needed to lead their oversized load down the highway. This segment of shipping requires specialized equipment: LowPro 53 ft. Step-deck, RGN (removable goosenecks), and self-loading multi-axle trailers.
Over-Dimensional + Permit Processing Team
Another value we offer is having an in-house permit processing team. Red Dog has a group of tenured people that know how to map out a trip taking into account any narrow highways, low bridges, and any other potential obstructions or restrictions our driver may encounter as he is on his way to his destination. In addition to the knowledge of mapping out the route, our team can secure the necessary permits for each state and provide an all-inclusive rate to get the job done.
