Hot Shot Trucking is Changing the Face of Logistics

by OGG Equipment LLC  /  The term ‘hotshot trucking‘ is a relatively new one to catch on in the wider world of shipping and logistics but the concept has been around for a while. Most accounts put the birth of hot shot hauling in the early days of oil exploration in Texas. When you’re running a massive industrial operation, something as simple as a missing pipe or delayed equipment could put the brakes on the whole project and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In order to keep things moving, hot shot truckers would remain on call in case the operation required a quick run into town for supplies or a speedy transport of pipe from one job site to another. Nowadays the applications are similar, just spanning many more industries and business sectors.
