A Message From HTI's President


Billy Hines
Billy R. Hines
President & CEO
Hines Trucking, Inc.

I would like to take a few moments of your time to introduce our company.


Hines Trucking is the most experienced, innovative, and customer-service oriented transportation operation in the region. We have worked with the saw mill, paper mill, and chip mill industries since 1936. Because of our tailored equipment specs, our trucks can haul more product per load than other carriers. Our trucks are equipped with state-of-the-art communication and tracking systems, which allow for immediate contact with our trucks when information needs to be exchanged between dispatchers and drivers. Hines Trucking is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for our customers.


Safety is given highest priority and is represented by our satisfactory Department of Transportation rating and employee incentive programs such as our Safety Bonus Program, Workers' Compensation Safety Incentive Program, Highway Safety Program, and annual Safety Awards Banquet.


Hines Trucking will provide your company with customized service, tailored to meet your individual needs. Our drivers will follow your company's rules, load their trucks with minimal product spillage, promptly cleanup any spillage, make certain any equipment used by them is properly cared for, and work in cooperation with your yard supervisor.


Along with a 64-miles-per-hour restriction and only hauling the legal weight limit, our trucks are equipped for safety devices such as anti-lock brakes and reflective tape. Hines Trucking's drivers receive thorough safety training during orientation and are on 30, 60, and 90 day review to provide certainty that they are meeting our expectations and our customers' needs.


As we are all aware, our environment is a precious asset, which must be protected and preserved. Hines Wood Fiber Recovery & Processing, Inc., provides a means to recover and process wood waste into useful products instead of disposing of it in already overloaded landfills. Being familiar with the types of wood used in this region, I was able to help design the sink float system being used by Hines Wood Fiber to process the pine and hardwood species native to this area. Since the market for wood recovery products is seasonal, we will work together with you to make your wood waste recovery a comfortable venture for both your company and Hines Wood Fiber.
