KSMTA’s Services and Advice Help Fuel Growth at Garner Trucking

February 7, 2022


In the middle of the Great Recession, Garner Trucking was struggling. Shipper volumes were down, shipping rates were low, and fuel costs were near an all-time high. The family-owned and operated business with a five-decade history of exceeding customer expectations was forced to lay off drivers and re-examine their operations.

Garner Trucking LogoGarner reached out to KSM Transport Advisors (KSMTA) to better understand how they were meeting or missing the key performance indicators they had set for themselves. KSMTA’s team worked with the carrier to identify the profitability of each lane and customer. The data and resources that KSMTA provided helped Garner’s leadership recognize good freight and bad freight before committing to each load.

KSMTA is much more than professional people helping Garner. They’re friends in the industry who care about the success of my business.

– Sherri Garner Brumbaugh, president/CEO of Garner Trucking, Inc.
