A Comprehensive Guide to Commercial Trucking

If you’re looking for insights into commercial trucking solutions or simply want to know more about trucking services near you, this guide is exactly what you need. The trucking industry is often regarded as the lifeblood of the economy, moving goods from one location to another, ensuring everything from food supplies to construction materials get to their needed location. Read on to discover everything you need to know about the industry, the process, and the numerous benefits it offers.

The Process of Trucking Services

When it comes to commercial trucking services, the process typically begins by matching the right truck and driver to the client’s needs. They are responsible for transporting a variety of goods, including consumer products, machinery, food, and packaged materials across states and cities. The safe delivery of these goods is of utmost importance, as businesses and customers rely heavily on the products and materials being transported.

Trucking services can be classified into different categories, including ‘less than truckload’ (LTL), truckload, specialized, and dedicated services. The need for these services can vary based on the volume of goods, type of product, and distance to be traversed. However, all these categories are instrumental in making sure that the goods reach their destination in the best possible condition and within the allotted time frame.

Truck Hauling Services

Within the sector of commercial trucking, truck hauling is a service often sought after. Truck hauling generally involves the transportation of heavy materials and equipment. The trucks used in this service are equipped to handle heavy loads and are manned by drivers who are trained to handle the unique challenges that may arise while transporting these loads. These types of services require specialized vehicles and experienced drivers to ensure safety.

Box Truck Loads

Box truck loads, also known as van freight or dry van freight, are another type of truck service offered. The name comes from the description of the truck, a full-sized cab attached to a cargo area or “box”. This type of trucking service is commonly used to transport large quantities of dry goods that do not require any temperature control.

Benefits of Using Trucking Services

Now that we have discussed the process and types of trucking services, let’s delve into the benefits. The flexibility offered by trucking services is unmatched. They can provide door-to-door transportation and last-mile delivery, ensuring that the goods are delivered directly to their intended destinations. Moreover, these services are not bound by the limitations of rail networks or flight schedules, and can therefore reach areas that may not be accessible via other modes of transportation.

The importance of commercial trucking solutions becomes evident when one considers the sheer volume of goods transported every day, catering to both individual and business needs. These solutions provide effective and efficient ways for the movement of goods and contribute significantly to the global economy.

About Mount Clemens, Michigan

History

Mount Clemens was first surveyed in 1795 after the Revolutionary War by Christian Clemens, who settled there four years later. Clemens and his friend, John Brooks, built a distillery, which attracted workers and customers, helping to settle the area. Brooks and Clemens platted the land, and the town was named after Clemens in 1818. It received a post office in 1821, with John Stockton as the first postmaster. Christian Clemens is buried at Clemens Park, located just north of downtown.

Indian mounds were in the vicinity, more specifically just north of the Clinton River near the present location of Selfridge Air National Guard Base.

The settlement filed for incorporation as a village in 1837, but this was not acted upon by the legislature until 1851. It was incorporated as a city in 1879. It became the seat of Macomb County on March 11, 1818.

The Mount Clemens Public Library opened in 1865.

Historically, Mount Clemens’ largest industry for more than 100 years, from 1873 to 1974, was tourism related to the mineral baths, drawn from springs that were scattered throughout the city. Such mineral baths were very popular and were tourist destinations. At the peak of the industry, the city had 11 bathhouses and several hotels related to this trade. The first bathhouse was built in 1873 and was known as “The Original”; it was located on the corner of Jones and Water streets. The bathhouse burned in 1883, but it was rebuilt even larger the following year to accommodate the crowds of customers. Over the years, noted visitors such as film actors Clark Gable and Mae West, athletes Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey, news magnate William Randolph Hearst, and the wealthy Vanderbilt family vacationed in the city to take advantage of the mineral springs baths.

The only remaining bathhouse building from this era is St. Joseph’s Sanitarium and Bath House. It has recently been renamed as Select Specialty Hospital and is owned by Select Medical Corporation. This last bath house is in danger of being demolished, but the Friends of Historic Preservation are working with the city to preserve it.

The Olympia Salon & Spa, located in the Martha Washington Sanitarium on Cass Avenue, is again offering mineral baths.

From about 1898 to 1950, the Mount Clemens Sugar Company operated, processing sugar beets into refined sugar.

Throughout the late 20th century, the suburban expansion of metropolitan Detroit and its exurbs affected the city of Mt. Clemens as well as its surrounding townships.

Government

The city government is composed of a mayor, the current being Laura Kropp, and a city council. The city has been facing financial hardships for some time. Approximately 42% of properties in the city are tax-exempt, resulting in lost revenue of $1.2 million. In an attempt to raise funds to combat a $960,000 budget deficit for 2010, former Mayor Barb Dempsey solicited donations to the city’s general fund from tax-exempt organizations like churches, schools and a hospital, in order to pay for services like fire protection, streetlights and roads. The city already disbanded the 113-year-old police department in 2005 to cut costs. The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office now provides primary policing services in Mount Clemens. The deficit is projected to reach $1.5 million in 2011.
