Our Expanded Transportation Fleet
Our recently expanded transportation fleet is a welcomed addition the the Superior Almond team. Taking careful consideration during every step of the transportation process, Superior Almond uses only the top-of-the-line equipment available. In fact, we recently expanded our transportation fleet with Wesco Superhopper trailers that are built specifically for almonds.
Lightweight Trailers + More Capacity = Lower Production Costs
These impressive, lightweight Wesco Superhopper trailers offer 13% to 25% more capacity than other almond harvest trailers on the market. This translates to fewer loads per grower and overall reduced transportation costs.
- Since Superior Almond Hulling switched to the Superhopper, our average load size has increased from 43,000 to 50,000 lbs.
- In 2012 that was almost 1,000 fewer truckloads for the year.
- Superior’s fleet of Superhopper trailers has been expanded again this year by nearly 30%.
