Equipment and Containers

Vision Logistics, an intermodal carrier, began in 2004 with 4 tractors and has since grown to a fleet of over 75 tractors today.

Nearly the entire fleet is company owned so that accountability, quality, and reliable service are provided with each and every load. Vision leases a handful of power units to help avoid any downtime. Vision Logistics owns a combination of day cab and sleeper units.

Day Cabs

A day cab has no sleeping bunk, but is lighter, has a shorter wheelbase, and is easier to maneuver.

Sleeper Units

A sleeper unit contains a sleeping bunk. Although larger, they are good for slower loading or unloading customers, and allow drivers to make longer haul deliveries more efficiently. Also, some drivers prefer the additional space for comfort, storage, supplies, etc.

Security

Security is both a priority and a necessity. All loaded containers are parked in a secure container lot which can accommodate over 70 containers. This load lot has a 6 foot chain-link fence with razor barbed wire. There is also a lot that can accommodate in excess of 100 empties onsite. There are 24 strategically placed video cameras that record the entire lot as well as personnel and truck gates. Each of the two truck gates require a secure pass-code that is specific to each individual entering.
