ATS expands Heavy Haul division assets to 19 axles
St. Cloud, Minn. – Anderson Trucking Service, Inc. (ATS)
is pleased to announce the delivery of their first 19-axle
trailer. The 19-axle trailer was designed by ATS with the
help of Trail King Industries. The new trailer will begin hauling
customer loads this month.
For over 50 years, ATS has built business through innovation, which included expanding equipment to meet the needs of customers. Over the last five years, the ATS Heavy Haul Division of ATS Specialized, Inc. has grown from having two 13-axle trailers to over 50. The 4-axle tractor fleet has grown to over 110 in that same period of time.
“Part of our business strategy has been to grow when the needs of our customers grow,” said Brent Anderson, Director of the Heavy Haul Division at ATS. “It has been an exciting time for ATS Heavy Haul to grow this quickly.”
The 19-axle design will add flexibility to the transportation solutions ATS offers customers. The trailer has a 32-foot expandable (to 38-foot) flat deck for conventional heavy haul cargoes that can be changed out for 50-foot beam deck for transporting equipment that needs these specialized requirements. The trailer can carry loads up to 205,000 pounds.
Rollie Anderson, President and CEO of ATS, is pleased with the growth: “The market is strong. That coupled with the recent demands in the wind, energy and power industries, has allowed ATS to grow with our customers and add this type of equipment. We look forward to the challenges and opportunities this equipment will bring to the marketplace”.
Safety is always one of our top concerns at ATS. With this in mind, Jeff Lofgren, who has been driving with ATS for over 30 years, will be the primary driver of the truck pulling the new 19-axle trailer.
