To provide our customers with the most efficient and cost-effective services, PDI Bulk pre-loads 90% of our deliveries. Pre-loading tankers helps to reduce time-to-delivery, allows our trucks to conduct more turns within legal hours of service as drivers are not spending time loading, and it ensures that we can handle emergency loads more expediently.
Bulk Trucking Equipment
PDI Bulk is proud to be a market leader when it comes to technology, service, and safety. Our best-in-class equipment and integrated dispatching and routing technology has allowed us to provide the most efficient and customer-focused service in the market.
We use the latest technology to transfer customer products, including a double pod transfer unit which uses pressurized air to move products from railcars to trucks – which means that no moving parts touch customer products.
Our fully-automated order entry, dispatch, invoicing, and driver settlement system provides direct inventory management and reconciles all inventories in our facilities each day.
Bulk Trucking Technology
We have made it our priority to develop a seamless customer experience with our RF barcode technology for accurate inventory loading, tracking, and invoicing, a customer portal, and more.
PDI Bulk’s Customer Portal allows our customers to:
- View paperwork via the Customer Portal
- Check their inventory
- Place an order
- Track deliveries in real time
- Access paperwork for any order, live or historical
- Receive automated reports via email
- Auto-populate bill of ladings and associated paperwork
All of our trucks feature state-of-the-art technology to help dispatch increase routing and improve efficiency. As an early adopter of this technology, we have been able to improve our processes and procedures and have won an Innovator of the Year Award.
Our innovative software provides us with eLogs, scheduled maintenance, ECM live data, and event reporting – and it tracks hard brakes, over-speeding, demurrage, calculations, idling, and more. This helpful information allows us to create driver scorecards for our drivers and driver managers, which helps to encourage safe and fuel-efficient driving.
PDI Bulk trucks feature:
- Super single tires which improves tire pressure and load capacity
- Aluminum rims to reduce weight
- Standardized disc brakes
All PDI Bulk facilities employ security measures, including barbed wire fences and alarm systems. All terminals are equipped with night lighting for safety and security, and all have video surveillance.
We own and operate all of our specialized equipment, trucks, and rail cars and we ensure that they are maintained and cleaned to the highest standards.
Maintenance facilities are located in Montreal, QC and Guelph, ON. Our fleet is monitored by an automated system which directly communicates with dispatch to ensure 100% on-time scheduling of maintenance, repair requests, and annual safeties.
