Hotshot Carrier Defined

Hotshot Carrier
Emergency Freight

A hotshot carrier is a trucking company that specializes in transporting small, time-sensitive loads. Hotshot carriers typically use smaller trucks, such as straight trucks or box trucks, to transport their loads. They often have a network of drivers who are available to pick up and deliver loads on short notice.

Hotshot carriers are often used by businesses that need to move equipment or supplies quickly. They may also be used by individuals who need to move a large piece of furniture or other household item.

Hotshot carriers typically charge a higher rate than traditional trucking companies. However, they offer a number of advantages, including:

  • Speed: Hotshot carriers can often deliver loads much faster than traditional trucking companies.
  • Convenience: Hotshot carriers can often pick up and deliver loads on short notice.
  • Flexibility: Hotshot carriers can often transport loads that are too small or too large for traditional trucking companies.

Energy Efficient

The carbon footprint of shipping a 2 ton motor 1000 miles by air is approximately 1,100 pounds of CO2. The carbon footprint of shipping the same motor 1000 miles by ground is approximately 200 pounds of CO2.

Air freight is a very energy-intensive form of transportation. It takes a lot of fuel to get a plane off the ground and keep it in the air. The average commercial jet emits about 4.4 pounds of CO2 per passenger mile. So, if you’re flying a 2-ton motor 1000 miles, you’re emitting about 1,100 pounds of CO2.

Ground transportation is much more fuel-efficient than air freight. The average semi-truck emits about 0.7 pounds of CO2 per ton-mile. So, if you’re shipping a 2-ton motor 1000 miles by ground, you’re emitting about 200 pounds of CO2.

If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, shipping by ground is the better option. However, if you need to get the motor there quickly, air freight may be your only option.

Huntsville Air Freight

JLK Trucking has been running air freight to and from the port of Huntsville Alabama airport code HSV for customers wanting air freight picked up and dropped off at the air port for expedited shipping situations. We can also compare the speed at which we can run an expedited shipping load from the Huntsville area direct by truck, in some cases we can pick up your load within hours and deliver it at the customers destination hours later. For example, on a shipment from Memphis Tennessee to Huntsville Alabama we were called on to schedule a pickup at the Huntsville (HSV) Alabama port for local dock delivery. Since we had a truck that had just completed delivery in Paducah, we ran to Memphis and picked up the load and ran it straight to the customers dock in about the same time as it would have been at the Huntsville Airport.

Steel town Birmingham Alabama

After the civil war, Birmingham became the largest steel producing area in the south east. Steel production requires iron ore, coke, coal, limestone and dolomite. Postbellum steel production technology involved the use of blast furnaces, and limestone and dolomite were used with the iron ore to carry away impurities, like a flux, except in this case it was called slag. Raw material were found in the unique geology of the region, and an abundance of railroads allowed for the transport of raw materials and finished product.

Like building Pullman rail cars and coal mining, a ‘company town’ aspect of production arose. Critics point to high mortality rates in the growth of the industry, but this was also true of the age, and of steel production in northeastern centers. Later, industries developed that produced pipe and fittings.

Early Birmingham pipe producers made cast iron, or ductile pipe. Later, a large production and distribution of steel pipe evolved. Many people forget that most of the pipe for the Alaskan pipeline was purchased from Japan, the pipeline was built in the 1970’s.

There is still a large steel pipe distribution network centered in Birmingham, with a great deal of the pipe being imported and some produced domestically. With it’s centralized shipping points, Birmingham ships the most pipe in the southeast by rail and truck. Major shippers include U.S. Pipe, Nucor, American Pipe and Supply and Consolidated Pipe & Supply.

The modern steel pipe industry serves the pipeline industry, refinery and chemical plant construction and vessel manufacturing. Modern steel pipe is produced in two formats in general, ERW and Seamless. ERW is Electric Resistance Welded and produced by folding sheets of metal into a pipe and welding the seam. Seamless pipe is extruded.

Korn & Alice In Chains

Oak Mountain Amphitheatre (formerly the Verizon Wireless Music Center)

Korn & Alice In Chains come to Oak Mountain Amphitheatre on Tuesday 23rd July 2019! Rock and metal

Oak Mountain Amphitheatre

Formed in Seattle, Washington in 1987, Alice In Chains found fame in the 1990s alongside fellow Seattle bands  Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden as part of the grunge movement. The group became one of the most successful bands of the 1990s, selling over 30 million records worldwide (over 14 million records in the US alone), with two number one albums and six top ten albums on the Billboard 200 chart. The band’s debut, Facelift, which was released in 1990, was certified double-platinum and lead the way for similar success with their third and fourth albums. In 1996, the band took an unofficial hiatus due to lead vocalist Layne Staley’s struggles with addiction that eventually culminated in his death in 2002. In 2005, the remaining band members reunited for a charity concert and in 2006 Alice In Chains began touring and recording again with William DuVall taking over as lead vocalist full-time. Rainier Fog, the band’s sixth and most recent studio album, was released in 2018, debuting at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 and receiving a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album.

Quail and Pheasant

I-In the natural community, whenever a population’s food supply increases, so does its number, and visa versa. If you wanted to increase your number what would you do? s-Kill off whatever else is eating your food. Right, and this is considered holy work by the Takers. Kill off everything but your food supply and your food supply’s food supply. You end up with a community in which every other species is systematically exterminated in order to support the expansion of your own. You also end up constantly worried about how to feed an ever expanding population. I-What does Mother Culture say about this? s-Mother Culture says that it is possible to increase the food production without increasing the population.

And why increase food production? To feed the starving millions. And if you feed the starving millions? Then they will reproduce and increase the population. Is this a problem? What does Mother Culture have to say about this? Mother Culture says it is not a problem, because if it becomes a problem we will just resort to birth control. But despite all the ads urging us to send food to others who are starving, there are precious few that suggest that we send birth control devices. As long as man is acting out a story which says that the world belongs to him, living that story will mean increased food production for today and population control tomorrow. Only tomorrow never comes. But shouldn’t we attempt to eliminate famine? Famine is not a phenomenon unique to humans. All species are subject to it, everywhere in the world. And, when a species runs out of food, its population decreases until the current food supply is enough to support it. Man says that he is exempt from this law; when he sees a community that is suffering from lack of resources, he rushes in with resources from the outside; thus ensuring that there will be more people to starve in the next generation. Man in First world countries exercises his philanthropy by maintaining millions in Third world countries in a state of chronic starvation.

I-So we have discovered a law by which the community of life must live in order to avoid extinction. s-Still, people won’t accept it. Let’s be clear about what the people will and will not accept. The law itself is beyond argument, clearly in place amongst the community of life. What the Takers will deny is that it applies to humankind. Mankind has to see that they are effected by this biological law. I don’t think they will do that. Then the law will make them see. If they refuse to live under the law, then they simply won’t live. You might say that this is one of the law’s basic operations: Those who threaten the stability of the community by defying the law automatically eliminate themselves. Luckily I think that people want to hear something new. I-So tell me another way to phrase the law. s-The world was not made for any one species. And… Mankind was not needed to bring order into the world, it was in fine shape before we began to mess with it. The people of the world cling with fanatic tenacity to the specialness of man. They want desperately to perceive a vast gulf between man and rest of creation. This mythology of human superiority justifies their doing whatever they want, just the way Hitler’s mythology about Aryan superiority justified his doing whatever he pleased with Europe.

I-Among the Leavers, crime, mental illness, suicide and drug addiction are great rarities. What does Mother Culture say about this? s-Mother Culture says that this is the price of civilization. The story that the Leavers have been enacting here for the past three million years isn’t a story of conquest and rule. Enacting it doesn’t give them power. Enacting it gives them lives that are satisfying and meaningful to them. They’re not seething with discontent and rebellion, not incessantly wrangling over what should be allowed and what forbidden, not forever accusing each other of not living the right way, not living in terror of each other, not going crazy because their lives seem empty and pointless, not having to stupefy themselves with drugs to get through the days, not inventing a new religion every week to give them something to hold onto, not forever searching for something to do or something to believe in to make their lives worth living. And I repeat: This is not because they live close to nature or have no formal government or because they are innately noble. This is simply because they are enacting a story that works well for people a story that worked well for three million years and still works well where the Takers haven’t yet managed to stamp it out.

I-There is a very special knowledge that you must have if you are to rule the world. The Leavers lack this knowledge, and the Takers are very surprised at this because they believe the knowledge to be self evident. Who else has this knowledge? s-The gods. Yes, and I will tell you a story about how the gods came to have this knowledge. The gods one day were contemplating sending a cloud of locusts down upon a great plain so that the locusts could feast on the vegetation and the lizards and birds could flourish by feasting on the locusts. They then thought that this might not be such a great idea since then the animals which ordinarily feasted on the plants might suffer. This presented a problem because whichever way they went, they would be favoring one species over another. While they were debating they saw a fox and decided to send a quail for the fox to eat. But then they thought that it would be a crime to make the quail suffer. As they turned this over they saw that the quail was about to eat a grasshopper and they began to fret about whether they should spare the grasshoppers life by sending the quail to the fox. This was a great puzzle; if they acted then they would inflict evil on some and good on others, yet the same would occur if they did not act. Finally they perked up and remembered that at one time they had made a garden that contained the fruit of good and evil. They went to the garden and ate of the fruit and their eyes were opened. So they then went about and decided one day to spare the fox and another to spare the quail.
