AX Transportation Doubles Fleet with 20 New Tractors

Growing its fleet to a total of 40 over the road trucks, AX Transportation added 20 new 2019 Freightliner Cascadia tractors to its line for equipment haulage. Each tractor can carry a gross vehicle weight of up to 80,000 lbs., including the tractor, trailer and load. A load can be up to 48,000 lbs. or higher if permitted and only one piece.

“The added equipment gives AX Transportation more flexibility and a bigger footprint across the U.S. while keeping the cost down for customers,” said Chris Nigro, general manager, AX Transportation.

Jeff Elliott, Class A OTR driver, AX Transportation, was among the first to drive one of the newly added Freightliner tractors. Dubbed Julius by Jeff’s wife on its maiden voyage, Jeff hauled a 12 ft. wide Xtreme Cube office cube from the fabrication and assembly facility in Henderson, Nevada, to an Ahern Rentals branch in Greer, South Carolina.
