Carthage Marine Transport was founded in 2003. The company was started small moving a few small boats with a dually pickup truck. After starting the business in this small way, we looked at the boat transportation industry and it appeared the industry was dominated by boat haulers, boat shipping companies & boat transportation brokers that did not operate honestly, legally, with integrity & with very little focus on the customer's requirements. It appeared there might be a niche in the industry for a company that would deliver a premium service, be honest in its dealings with everyone, would operate legally & safely, place an emphasis on the needs of the employees, and most of all, recognize the importance of delivering to the customer a quality service that would meet the requirements of the customer.
Carthage Marine Transport has successfully developed this niche in the boat transportation industry by focusing on the primary areas we believe are necessary for success; honesty, safety, regulatory & insurance compliance, employee relations & customer service. Our primary objective is to provide damage free, on time delivery of boats, primarily to the boat manufacturers, which is the primary base of our company. Additional information on the history is in a Joplin Globe article published April, 2006, Big Boats Cruise Along On Big Trucks.
Carthage Marine Transport is looking forward to continued growth & strength in the boat transport industry. The actual growth will be managed at a level compatible with the operation's capability for effectively managing the increased capacity & insuring continued improvement of service to customers. Future areas of focus include:
- Even with the prospect of an industry wide driver shortage, we will continue our enhanced vetting procedures in our hiring efforts, to insure only premium, top quality owner operators are hired.
- We will continue to strengthen our presence in the private boat transport area.
- Initiatives will be pursued to continue increasing the % of trucks & drivers that can transport into Canada, ports & CARB states.
- Additional focus will be placed upon effective utilization of technology in order to improve customer service, increase productivity & keep abreast of increasing regulations.
While concentrating on meeting our customer’s requirements, efforts will also be ongoing to evaluate sales to insure the type of customers we service, are in line with our company philosophies & long term plans.
