Technology

Davis Express is a truckload carrier specializing in refrigerated hauling. We currently operate in excess of 300 trucks and 490 trailers. We are proud to say that we keep all of our equipment up to date and well maintained.

One area in which Davis Express prides itself is its maintenance facility and its staff of qualified mechanics. We make sure that every aspect of our equipment is in the best possible condition. By providing our mechanics with well equipped facilities and training, you can rest assured that our equipment will get your load delivered on time and in a safe manner.

All of our trucks are equipped with a QUALCOMM tracking system. This allows us to monitor the location of our trucks at all times. With the satellite we are also able to track your load and give you an estimate on when it should arrive.

Davis Express also makes sure that it's trailers are in excellent shape. All of our trailers and refrigeration units are only a few years old, which helps to ensure the safety of your cargo.

All of our trailers are 53' x 102", air-ride, refrigerated trailers.
