Primex operates its own fleet of trucks from each manufacturing location, with the exception of Reedsburg, WI, to service your requirements. The Primex fleet is equipped for both local and long distance deliveries. This service allows material to be delivered on time and undamaged, and it provides our customers the opportunity to return recyclable scrap and regrind.
With our own fleet we service our customers with:

  • Prepaid Freight
  • Truckload Deliveries
  • On-time Delivery
  • Courteous Drivers

Primex Transport has made strong environmental efforts as well to reduce our carbon
  • The Corporate fleet of trucks is governed to 65mph down from a previous limit of 70 mph.
    This speed reduction creates a savings of over 60,000 gallons of diesel fuel annually.
  • A recent switch to progressive shifting further saves another 60,000 diesel fuel gallons each year.
  • Auxilary power units added to many of the tractors with sleeper cabs reduce over 30,000 diesel fuel
    gallons yearly.
  • CO2 emissions are cut and diesel fuel spared with ongoing inbound and outbound shipment
  • Toll road passes such as I-Pass, E/ZPass, and Sun Pass have greatly reduced losses resulting from
    idling and up-shifting.
Our customers can market many end products, including packaging and shipping, as 'green.' This is a value-add to consumers when purchasing.
