Reddaway looks great in Orange
Orange, CA is home to over 135,000 residents and our Orange County terminal. Located a mere 32 miles southeast of Los Angeles, our proximity to the second-largest city in the country makes Orange ripe with activity.
Situated near the Santa Ana River (and near the neighboring city of Anaheim) the Reddaway Orange terminal is a large, high-volume hub that relies upon 87 Reddaway employees to keep its 58-door dock churning. Our Orange facility is home to 26 city drivers and 22 linehaul drivers who ensure the safe and efficient movement of freight in and out of the center 7 days a week.
Terminal Manager, Bob Bohi, estimates that about two-thirds of the service center's shipments are next-day shipments, in addition to a sizable amount of guaranteed shipments and hazardous materials.
This Reddaway service center offers next-day lanes to 13 different Reddaway terminals within California and to 6 terminals outside of the state. With so much traffic to such a wide assortment of locations, the cargo is quite varied. Everything from paper products to bicycles pass through Orange, including products of some world-famous brands such as Xerox and Panasonic.
Despite the fast-paced, high-volume environment, Orange has a strong safety culture led by drivers like Art Ayala (2 million miles without an accident and working toward 3 million) and Robert Faber, an 18-year Reddaway veteran who drives a city route in and around Cerritos, CA. Robert believes pro-actively meeting the customer's shipping needs is the only sensible way to be.
"We have a highly active Safety Committee that makes recommendations and provides information to help keep us all safe," said Bob Bohi. "We have implemented a facility-wide Safety Vest program where vests are worn by all employees on the dock and in the yard. We have a skilled and veteran group of drivers representing us safely in the community, including a number of drivers such as Tom Gallagher (a 31-year Reddaway veteran), Carl Gillion, Abel Gonzalez and Randy Obiedzenski who compete in state and national truck driving safety competitions. We have so many great drivers--it is impossible to list them all." To compete in safety championships, drivers must be accident-free the entire year prior to the competition. Our drivers are among the nation's most professional and safest drivers.
The Reddaway Orange terminal is just one of the integral locations of our incomparable California coverage, and a model for safety, efficiency and service. That’s California service you can count on!
