From permitting to escorts, to safety and project management, an in-house team of experts in each of these critical areas work side by side under one at ATS each day to ensure each and every load you schedule with us is executed safely, on time and within your budget.
The ATS permit department is staffed with experts experienced in securing permits for all types of transportation and freight, including over-dimensional and overweight permit securement. Through 60+ years in business, ATS and this team have established trusted relationships with states and municipalities, which enable us to execute the permitting process smoothly and make needed modifications quickly to keep your project on time.

With more than 60 years in the industry and millions of miles behind us, there aren’t many roads we haven’t traveled. Before every load hits the road, we do our homework. The ATS in-house team of planning specialists will map the route and create a plan to ensure the safest, most efficient journey for your particular freight. Our in-house team will work with a nationwide network in the field, conducting field route surveys when necessary and driving the route to ensure every detail is up to standard so your shipment stays on track. Using CAD-based aerial systems, an optimal route is created based on the size of the truck and trailer your load specifications.
ATS isn’t just a trucking company; we’re a safety company. From safety checks to securement plans, our staff works side by side with operations and drivers, directly contributing to planning and operations to ensure the ultimate safety of every load and every person involved.
