The OTR Division of Howard Sheppard, Inc. is responsible for providing transportation services for shipping liquid, dry bulk, bagged and general van commodities. Our services include local, regional, and over the road transportation. We understand each customer’s needs are different. That’s why our diversified trailer fleet consists of liquid tanks, pneumatic dry bulk tanks, vans, and flatbeds. Commodities commonly transported include kaolin (liquid, dry, and bagged) products, sodium silicate, chemicals, concrete beams/pilings, and dry van freight.
We have three OTR terminals in Georgia: Sandersville, Augusta, and Savannah. Each terminal is staffed with our well-trained and experienced personnel, who are responsible for the day-to-day management of the fleet and its operations. Vehicles and drivers are dispatched by each terminal to which they are assigned. Strategically locating the outlying terminals in Augusta and Savannah provided HSI the ability to concentrate on niche regional markets that complement the kaolin industry while allowing expansion beyond the kaolin industry. We pride ourselves on finding the niche markets and providing excellent service.
