Tell us a little about IMCG – when was the company founded, what is unique about the organization?
IMCG was founded in 1982. Our company has lots of capacity – we have trucks to service customers of all sizes and are nimble enough to support all types of requests. Our drivers and staff help to differentiate us from our competition. In addition, we spend close to four times the industry average on technology, we operate both company trucks and owner operators, and 100 percent of our fleet has on-board computers deployed in all trucks including Owner Ops.
