EXPERTISE: Road Scholar Transport has been in business since 1988, when owner Jim Barrett leased a tractor trailer, and with his wife Debra taking on the role of dispatcher, laid the groundwork for what grew to be an industry of approximately 95 drivers and tractors, over 350 trailers, and ten owner operators…and it all started with one leased tractor trailer and a dream.
SERVICES: Need it there fast? No problem. Road Scholar Transport offers 24 hour expedited shipping (dock-to-dock with NO transfers) and 48 hour west coast service. With 48 and 53 foot trailer availability, and van, reefer, freezer, and heater options, be assured that whatever your freight is, Road Scholar can transport it. Key service areas include the Mid-Atlantic and New England areas (Eastern VA to ME) but we not limited to those areas by any means. Our trucks are often seen throughout the nation!
All of our trailers are air ride and reefers contain a remote temperature setting via a secure website, so you can rest tight that your cargo is safe. That, and the fact that Road Scholar Transport has a 0.0001% damage rate and never suffered a full cargo loss. Our drivers are HazMat certified and underwent emergency response procedure training to know what to do if anything should ever happen.
With our online tools, you can get a quote from customer service within 10 minutes, schedule a pickup, track a shipment, online document retrieval, fuel surcharges, pre-populate your shipping locations, print a BOL, get an auto rate quote, and much more. How much easier can it get?
SECURITY FEATURES: Don’t wait for something to happen to your freight before you look into which trucking industries have the best security. It takes perpetrators less than 90 seconds to defeat a truck’s security features and steal your freight. Any longer than that, they move on to another target. With Road Scholar, thieves would be running away from our security features.
Our tractor trailers feature SkyBitz (mapping the most recent, and historical, positions of all vehicles, e-mail and/or pager alerts sent out in the event of a status change, and reports/alerts of door openings and closures). With cargo cam, covert, assisted GPS cargo tracking, bolt and cable seals, tamper evident tapes and seals, truck, trailer, and container locks and seals, your cargo is safe from thieves.
Road Scholar Transport also has Qualcomm distress/panic messaging, which features panic buttons to prevent operation of a vehicle, roof decals for aerial tracking, and facility security.
HELPING OTHERS: Road Scholar Transport has a social conscious as well. If you haven’t heard by now, our company created the 10 Million Miles to a Cure Awareness Campaign. We have many trailers dedicated to different charities/organizations such as, but not limited to: Alex’s Lemonade, Autism Speaks, American Breast Cancer Foundation, Children’s Tumor Foundation, Prostate Cancer Awareness, International Rett Syndrome Foundation, St. Joseph’s Center, American Foundation for the Blind, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN), The Flight 93 National Memorial, and The American Red Cross. Through the use of these rolling billboards, we will travel 10 million miles in order to help spread awareness and hopefully save the lives of thousands.

Stepping out to breathe in the fresh air is not exactly what’s happening throughout the United States. In fact, it can cost you your life.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) stated that recent studies show individuals are dying a premature death caused by particle pollution nationwide (http://www.truckinginfo.com/news/news-detail.asp?news_id=71543).
According to truckinginfo.com, between 7,300 and 11,000 premature deaths caused by fine particulate pollution occur each year in California, a state that is less industrial than others.
The site notes that fine particulates are emitted from numerous sources, “the exhaust of diesel engines” being one of them.
Efforts to reduce this pollution are being taken by people in the trucking industry. Road Scholar Transport is one of them, bringing in 12 tractors within the next few months which will give off way less diesel particulate than the 2004 engines, at a ratio of 1:42!
Road Scholar Transport is concerned with the health of Americans, which is why we have created the 10 Million Miles to a Cure Awareness Campaign. Through this initiative, Road Scholar hopes to spread awareness of the many diseases/conditions battling the lives of millions today and help move one step closer to a cure.
