“Losing yourself and finding yourself ruins
leaders. Most of us are still finding ourselves.
We live to please our parents, teachers, bosses,
lovers, and friends. It’s healthy to please others
but devastating to judge ourselves by the
approval we receive. Living to please others is
unsustainable and never satisfying.”
- Dan Rockwell

1) We are currently conducting the cost analysis on our Pre-Pull
rates with the assistance of the fleet providing competitor rates.
We expect to have a solution on increasing the pre-pull rate very
soon. We will continue to communicate where we are with the
2) We are aware of the current congestion at the port and
extended wait times, we are reviewing the delays daily as our goal
is to not have the driver fleet wait at the terminal. This decreases
our capacity and is a waste of time. We are exploring all possible
options to keep the trucks moving. We hear you, some had team
members were stuck in the port for 4-5 hours at a time.
3) Quarterly truck Inspections have gone very well, only a few
minor issues have come up that were immediately addressed with
no trucks out of service for an extended time. Great Job Team as
this shows our dedication to safety and the Excargo Way!
4) Watco has accepted our contracts we are just waiting on the fi-
nal touches for the project to kick off, GIS/EMPIRE is requesting
additional assistance as well. We have containers daily that are
rolling due to congestion at the port and delays returning orders.
If you are available to complete another turn daily please reach
out to dispatch so we can continue to service customers.
Please Remember; the dispatch team is constantly
communicating to the entire fleet. If you have
additional capacity or can move more loads
please reach out to them daily.

New Safety Features at Gulf
Concrete Strip: This new solution will help our
warehouse team and our drivers feel safer pulling in
and out of the Gulf warehouse docks.
Stop Sign: When
exiting the Gulf freeway
property, we asked that
you come to a complete
stop before proceeding
onto the feeder road. This
is a heavy traffic area, that
requires us all to use
caution and patience to

The Excargo Brand Pillars correlate to every aspect of life,
including Safety! Often when things do not go as planned, you can
almost guarantee one of the Brand Pillars was missed.
Anticipate- Anticipate your work day. What tools will you need to
succeed? What can you expect? Traffic, waits at the port, pre-trip
inspections, and appointment times. Have a plan before you arrive to
Excargo for the day. Then execute your plan.
Cultivate- Build a relationship with your team members here at
Excargo. How can you help eliminate stress? Does your Dispatcher/
team know what time you like to begin your day? Have you cultivated
that relationship? Make life easier by cultivating with everyone you
interact with on a normal work day. You will find this rewarding, and
your needs addressed.
Prepare- Plan ahead. Have you pre tripped your person? Meaning,
do you have everything you need for a productive work day? Lunch,
schedule, transportation, clothing, communication. The better prepared
you are, the more productive your work day will be.
Deliver- Excargo is Driven to be the best. We promise to deliver
absolute accountability and reliability to our customers and to our
internal team. This is done by living our brand pillars day in and day
