ContainerPort Group expands trucking capacity with the launch of new drayage provider

ContainerPort Group (CPG), a top ten drayage provider in the United States, has announced the expansion of its motor carrier network with the introduction of Bristol Transportation, a newly launched drayage provider operating in Charleston, South Carolina; Chicago, Illinois; and Savannah, Georgia.

The launch of Bristol is expected to strengthen CPG’s US trucking solutions by adding capacity for customers in major port markets.

“Expanding the CPG network with the opening of Bristol Transportation in these strategic locations will help us cater to the shift we are seeing in diverting cargo away from the West Coast and pushing volumes up in the East and Gulf coasts,” said Joey Palmer, president of CPG, who went on to add, “Investing in solutions that address the supply chain challenges that our customers are facing demonstrates our tireless commitment to ensuring we are bringing solutions to the table that meet the goals of our customers and owner operators alike.”

Bristol Transportation offers dialed-up tech tools, driver-centric communications, and a best-in-class mobile application called DrayPal, which enables drivers to easily track settlements, safety scores, and meet financial goals, according to a statement.

Zach Hadden, regional director at Bristol Transportation, commented, “We provide our drivers with the best compensation package on the market and 24/7 access to a wide range of support services that go far beyond what is offered by your typical trucking company. This strong support is what keeps our drivers engaged and ultimately results in better on-time delivery rates and top-notch customer service.”

With access to CPG’s best-in-class resources and building on more than five centuries of experience, Bristol Transportation can reliably meet demand with confidence by offering the following to its customers:

Furthermore, Bristol Transportation has made a commitment to foster organic expansion, with the goal of opening a new facility every three months in the foreseeable future. The company has already grown since launching in Charleston in October 2021 with three trucks. Today, it has more than 40 trucks on the road in three markets.

"With Bristol Transportation on board, CPG demonstrates our continuous commitment to serving market demand by growing our network — ensuring cargo travels quickly to, from, and within these critical markets," pointed out Palmer.
