Hey guys,

I hope you are all staying safe during these crazy times we live in. We are still operating -- in fact, you can check out Dr. Drive’s walk through of our new procedures below.



We have also been fortunate that our re-manufacture business has been able to weather the supply chain disruption of this pandemic well and it is an honor to continue to keep our customers moving.

Unfortunately, our aftermarket replacement division has seen more disruption. Reports indicate that 10% of the world’s global boxship fleet are in lockdown, forcing suppliers to find other ways of shipping their products. Major shippers around the globe are scrambling to deliver products and there are serious disruptions in domestic freight.

We know how vital it is to get our customer’s products to them as fast as possible. Your work is essential and we understand that. In order to achieve this, however, we have to institute a temporary weight based surcharge for our OEM and Aftermarket replacement products.

Striving to keep you moving,
