A Company on the Move
Superior Carriers is going places! In our drive to maintain
excellence in bulk logistics, we're reaching new quality benchmarks,
new geographic locations, and new standards of service. For
over 60 years Superior Carriers has exemplified “Quality
in Motion,” achieving ever higher levels of performance
while fulfilling our customers’ needs.
We are one of a family of companies within Superior
Bulk Logistics (SBL), among
the largest bulk truck carriers in North America. As such,
our financial resources allow us to develop diverse, value-added
services to supplement our core bulk truck operations – from
multi-modal Transportation Management System (TMS) technology
solutions to onsite logistics management to bulk transloading
operations. Superior Carriers is experienced in a wide range
of liquid and dry bulk products, with broad geographic coverage
that locates us close to the customers we serve.
With well-established operations in Mexico and Canada,
Superior Carriers makes it easy to efficiently and economically
transport a wide range of bulk products to virtually any
destination in North America.
The Finest Fleet in the Industry
Superior's well-maintained equipment sets industry standards
for performance and appearance. Our modern tractor
fleet is designed with the comfort and efficiency of our
drivers in mind. Our tank trailer fleet is well below
industry average age, with a diversity that reflects its
versatility: DOT 407 (single/multi-compartment as
well as triaxle for Maine); self-loading, dry bulk pneumatic;
fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) for corrosive liquids;
deep drop tanks for viscous liquids; and lightweight tanks
for maximum payloads.
Dedicated drivers and equipment are available for specialized
applications. We welcome the opportunity to develop a comprehensive
distribution program tailored to your unique needs.
The Renowned "Superior" Service
Day in and day out, we live up to our name with quality-driven
logistics planning and execution, managed by a knowledgeable
team who works onsite or offsite with your organization.
Superior's management information systems provide timely, accurate
data for optimum information sharing and performance reporting.
Our web site offers customer-accessible Shipment
Tracking for current status reports,
as well as Employee

security. Satellite communication systems in all power units
permit near-real-time communication between driver and dispatcher.
Finally, our document imaging, Elemica TransLink™, electronic
