During National Truck Driver Appreciation week, Florida East Coast Railway would like to thank all of the 3.5 million hard working truck drivers who move our economy forward. We’d like to extend a very special thanks to the owner-operators at our drayage services arm, Florida East Coast Highway Services (FECHS), as well as to our drivers at Raven Transport, our regional trucking carrier. These dedicated and hardworking people help extend FEC Railway’s reach beyond the rail, giving our customers a total transportation solution when shipping into and out of Florida.
“FEC Highway services’ owner-operators are the foundation of the door-to-door intermodal service offering,” says Scott Woods, AVP Drayage and Trucking Operations. “These dedicated contractors ensure we provide outstanding and seamless service each day.”
“Having the most professional, committed and service-oriented group in the industry allows us to stand out with all of our customers. Our drivers truly make the difference,” says Adam Bridges, SVP Strategic Planning over Raven Transport.
From first mile to last mile, from local drayage and beyond, these professional men and women deliver America’s freight safely, quickly and securely.
Florida East Coast Highway Services (FECHS) offers drayage and over the road (OTR) services as part of a truck-rail solution.
