Boyd Bros. named CCJ Innovator of the Year
Friday, February 15, 2013 — Birmingham, Ala.-based fleet Boyd Bros. Transportation has been named the 2013 CCJ Innovator of the Year. The announcement comes from Duck Key, Fla., where the 2013 CCJ Innovators Summit was held this week.
Boyd hauls primarily flatbed freight, and the fleet helped develop an intermodal flatbed product to help boost freight capacity by allowing industrial freight to be transported by railroad. It worked with Raildecks Intermodal to develop the Boyd/Raildecks product, to help increase its productivity and capacity in a time of an increasingly worsening driver shortage and growing freight volume and demand.
Raildecks is an active member of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce and The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA). In 2009, to aid Raildecks technology development, we proudly became a qualified member of the NRC-IRAP, Canada’s premier innovation assistance program. Raildecks will again be a member of the NRC-IRAP program through 2010 in a continuing effort to improve our technology and provide employment in Canada.
Our Corporate Head Office is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with satellite offices in the Chicago and Seattle area.
