Venezia is made up of three different bulk divisions: Liquid, Dry Bulk and Specialty, that haul multiple commodities across America’s highways. Our Liquid division includes various commodities such as propane, admixtures, lubricants and asphalt. The Dry Bulk division includes products such as cement, lime, sand, as well as food-grade products like flour and malt. The Specialty division includes the rail-to-truck transfer of plastic resins as well as food-grade starch.
Our centralized Dispatch environment allow our Driver Managers to focus on the communication and scheduling with our drivers, to assure prompt action and service customer orders. Our Customer Service Representatives help to coordinate their efforts with Load Planners and Driver Managers to provide around-the-clock accessibility for both Driver and Customers alike.
The rest of our highly skilled office staff, from Billing to Payroll to Safety, and Driver Recruiting form a core group of committed individuals that allow Venezia to continue to provide value-added and customer-driven services.
Equally important as our Customer satisfaction and Employee engagement is our Driver Satisfaction. We are continually striving to ensure that the relationship between our Driver’s and the company is both mutually beneficial and long standing. Our Recruiting Department seeks to engage the best drivers and focus our retention efforts to keep them.
That’s Venezia in a nutshell. Committed to fostering a spirit of fairness and pride within our employees, our vendors, and our customers. Dedicated to investing in the future through technology and innovative problem-solving to handle ever-growing and ever-changing logistical needs. Relentlessly driven to be the best niche carrier in the industry.
“Safety is a core value” – Andy Venezia, company President
It is the policy and practice of each Venezia employee to strive for the highest safety standards. That’s why our trucks host a variety of technologies to set the bar high and be an example within our industry. This includes satellite communication with GPS tracking; outward-facing cameras to coach and improve driver performance. Tractor lane departure and speed monitoring technology that can read road signs, monitor tire pressure, truck speed, hard brake events and monitor blind spots. Trailers are spec’d with wider axles and disc brakes to help with stability and improved braking power.
Safety doesn’t begin and end with our drivers. Safety starts by developing and fostering a culture through all corporate and field personnel to understand that running a safe operation doesn’t occur by chance and isn’t an option. It is the result of careful attention of all corporate operations by those who are directly and indirectly involved. Our Driving to Zero (Accidents and incidents) program is engrained in our people starting at orientation and is fostered throughout our organization.
Our safety program has been developed to ensure compliance with all Federal, State and Local regulations. It is our obligation to be knowledgeable of the standards established by these agencies, and our corporation to implement the rules and regulations contained therein. We place high regard for the safety of our drivers, our valued customers, and the general public in which we operate. Prevention of accident and injury is a goal well worthy of our achievement.
Our challenge each day is to provide our drivers with safe and reliable equipment to operate. We rely on their inherent skills and training as professional drivers, to deliver safely and on time in a “Just in Time” environment. There is no compromise on the safety standards that Venezia has developed and strict adherence to these policies by our entire organization is required.
