Going Above and Beyond: CSTK and TransAm

Posted - May 3, 2021

For CSTK, being an authorized Thermo King dealership network means going above and beyond expectations whenever our customers need us to. Earlier this year, we were proud to be able to help one of our long-time clients, TransAm Trucking, get ready for an explosive 2021 by installing a major quantity of Thermo King Precedent units for their fleet in a short amount of time. Our team did an outstanding job with an order of this size even while handling all our other service work.  It was an amazing accomplishment and we would like to thank all the CSTK team members who were involved with this success. “I’d also like to thank TransAm and their staff for making this happen,” said Dave Burns, Vice President and General Manager of CSTK Kansas City.

“This was a complete team effort,” says CSTK Kansas City Service Manager Don Heider. “Everyone helped out. We couldn’t have done this without all the great work from Josh Jeske and everyone in the Parts Department, Claudine invoicing all the units, and of course the fantastic people in the Service department. I think this just goes to show you what we here at CSTK are all about. There’s nothing more important than getting our clients what they need.”

“That is outstanding! I have been very impressed with how smoothly this gigantic schedule has been chugging along, from Utility to CSTK to our shop,” adds Faith Escutia, Director of Finance TransAm Trucking.

For almost 35 years, TransAm Trucking has earned its status as a premier carrier in the temperature-controlled freight industry by providing its customers with superior service and quality. Initially founded with 70 tractors and 100 trailers, TransAm has expanded beyond its first Kansas City, Missouri facility and now operates a huge fleet out of its headquarters in nearby Olathe, Kansas and facilities in Rockwall, TX and Tampa, FL.

TransAm has the latest Thermo King Precedent S-600 units installed in their fleet. The Precedent platform represents the very latest in transport refrigeration technology, and it’s backed by something that can only be built up slowly over time: Thermo King peace-of-mind. Precedent takes everything Thermo King has learned since they invented transport refrigeration back in 1938 and gives customers the industry-leading performance and the quality and reliability that Thermo King is known for. Precedent also provides evergreen CARB compliance and double-digit fuels savings, and because it’s backed by the Thermo King warranty, you can rest easy knowing your business is covered, day in and day out.
