The D.P. Curtis Policy

"To provide transportation services that meet the customer's need, with on-time delivery and in compliance with all industry related safety and regulatory requirements" 
History of D.P. Curtis Trucking, Inc.


D.P. Curtis Trucking, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Dent P. Curtis, as a family business. He started with one truck and worked throughout Southern Utah until he was able to get contracts with local area shippers. He has built his business on honesty, self-discipline, solid ethics, and plain old hard work. The fleet was increased through the purchase of additional trucks and the addition of Owner-Operators. His primary operation consisted of serving the two gypsum plants in the county hauling sheetrock, and has expanded to many major companies throughout the United States, hauling various products and commodities. We still provide our transportation services to the area gypsum plants for both outbound and inbound shipments. The original company was composed of strictly flatbeds, but has expanded to dry bulk shipments with both pneumatic and bottom drop trailers. We haul various dry bulk products in our pneumatics' such as agricultural gypsum, cement, flyash, lime, bentonite, as well as some liquid products. We haul grain, coal, gravel, cinders, lime, and other products in our bottom drop trailers. Our flatbeds have side kits and tarps to safely transport our loads through any weather safely and efficiently. We have units that are capable of providing Maxi trailers for better service to our customers. Our fleet currently runs over 55 tractors across the United States. We rotate our tractors every three years and our trailers every 5 to 6 years, providing modern, reliable equipment to our customers. We hire safety conscious, reliable drivers and strive to provide a very competitive pay package, including many benefits such as vacation pay, insurance benefits, and an opportunity to enroll in our 401-K plan. Our business depends on the quality of our drivers so keeping good, hard working, reliable drivers is important to us. Our tractors are equipped with onboard communication units which provides us up to the minute contact with our trucks if needed. A load can be traced and located within minutes if a customer has concerns or questions. We are located in Richfield, Utah, which is in the heart of Southern Utah on the I-70, I-15 Corridor. We have an 8.8 acre yard with large shop, wash facilities, and office buildings. We have both Contract and Common authority and have a satisfactory DOT rating.
