Once the sweepstakes comes to a close, one charity will be chosen at random to win the grand prize of a $1,000 donation from OnTrac on behalf of the company that nominated the cause.

Posted on Oct 22, 2015 6:00:00 AM

OnTrac participated at the first annual Relay For Life of Downtown Phoenix event on Saturday, October 17, 2015. This is the first year that OnTrac participated as a Gold sponsor donating $1,500 to the American Cancer Society. The event took place at the Civic Space Center and included 150 participants walking to end cancer.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world’s largest fundraising event and most impactful by bringing communities around the world together for a common cause. The event symbolizes a celebration of life for those who have battled cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and taking action to finish the fight. Each Relay for Life event includes an opening ceremony, a lap for survivors, a lap for caregivers, a luminaria ceremony and a closing ceremony. OnTrac Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing Laura Peterson said, “On behalf of OnTrac, we are very thankful for Relay For Life of Downtown Phoenix for bringing the community together and putting on a special event. It’s great that OnTrac was able to participate this year and help to fight for a cure.”

The event was very successful with additional support from individuals who were unable to attend and a total of over $10,000 in fundraising to find a cure. Relay For Life Community Manager Cristine Frietze said, “It’s a wonderful thing to see support from corporate sponsors, such as OnTrac, as well as community volunteers to help get this event off the ground. Our hard work paid off.” Relay For Life of Downtown Phoenix is still accepting donations. Please follow this link for more information and to make a contribution:

Quality Bicycle Products Expanding With OnTrac

Posted on Oct 21, 2015 6:00:00 AM

Quality Bicycle Products (QBP) announced that they are expanding into the Western United States with a distribution center in the Reno, NV area. QBP is a bicycle company whose goal is making the world a better place through the power of cycling. For over 30 years, they have been building and distributing products from world-class vendors in the industry to over 5,000 bike shops.

QBP currently has three distribution centers in the Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Utah. The Reno distribution center is estimated to be open by December 2015 and will be their fourth facility. OnTrac will be handling most of the next-day ground services out of their Reno facility and servicing California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. For Arizona, Oregon and Washington, these dealers should expect to receive overnight ground shipping by mid-January.

"We're very excited to be partnering with OnTrac to provide our Western dealers with overnight ground service," said Kim Brown, QBP's director of distribution. "We chose OnTrac because of its one-day service area and because they can save our customers money when shipping larger, bulkier items like bikes, car racks or helmets."

 The 75,000 square-foot warehouse strategies will be based on the order frequency in the Western region. As time progresses, the diversity of products will expand based on sales trends. QBP’s products from in-house brands will be among the first SKUs to fill the warehouse, such as Lazer, Quality Wheels and Surly.

"Offering an expanded level of service to our western U.S. dealers is a huge step forward in our ongoing commitment to serving the local bike shop," said QBP's president, Rich Tauer.  On-site sales and a customer service team will also occupy the Reno facility.

OnTrac Opens Facility in Henderson, NV

Posted on Oct 20, 2015 6:00:00 AM

OnTrac is moving its Las Vegas facility to Henderson, Nevada. The new Henderson facility triples the size of the former Las Vegas facility, increasing from 42,000 square feet to 130,000 square feet.  The additional square feet are required due to the company’s growth in the Southern Nevada market.

The new facility will have a material handling system that will provide greater warehouse and delivery efficiencies. In addition, the Henderson facility has six unload and 14 load dock doors that will allow additional truck loads to move more efficiently in and out of the facility. The former Las Vegas facility only had four dock doors total. Las Vegas General Manager Shawn Rush said, “It’s a very exciting time to be at OnTrac. The facility move to Henderson will allow for service improvements and efficiencies while creating a better work environment for all employees. Plus the growth in Nevada alone will allow for OnTrac to expand upon our services while providing employment opportunities for the Henderson community.”

OnTrac may be hiring new employees to fill the facility. Currently at the Las Vegas facility there are 63 employees, while dispatching 61 service providers. The facility is located at 551 Courier Street, Henderson, Nevada 89011.

OnTrac is excited for the growth potential and the ability to get involved with the Henderson community. A member of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, OnTrac looks forward to supporting local business as well. Henderson Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Scott Muelrath said, “With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, OnTrac is a welcome addition to the Southern Nevada business community for competitive pricing and proven delivery service.  Welcome to Henderson OnTrac!”

OnTrac Delivering Hope to Local Schools

Posted on Oct 9, 2015 9:54:24 AM

OnTrac Delivering Hope to Local SchoolsDuring the month of September, OnTrac delivered backpacks and school supplies to 1,000 elementary, middle and high school students within the Western Region. Thirty-eight school districts and charities were touched by OnTrac Delivering Hope. OnTrac supplied 1,000 backpacks and distributed them to OnTrac operational facilities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Washington. School districts nearest to all of the facilities were chosen to participate. At each facility OnTrac employees donated and filled each backpack with supplies specific to students in kindergarten to 12th grade.

OnTrac is onboard with delivering hope to today’s youth and couldn’t be more excited to help these students succeed in the 2015-2016 school year and beyond. According to the City of Chandler’s website, “Hundreds of children go back to school each year without any school supplies [and] there are more than 8,000 students in the Chandler Unified School District [alone] who attend Title 1 schools.” City of Chandler Community Resources and Diversity Manager Leah Powell says, “It’s local businesses, like OnTrac, whose support helps to bring success to the families and communities that we serve.”

At OnTrac, it’s an important company-wide initiative to support the communities that we live and grow in. “We have a responsibility to give back to local communities and we feel very fortunate to be able to help those in need,” said Dennis Crosby, Commerce General Manager. “Education is everything and if we’re not involved with today’s youth, then we fail as a leader in the community.”

Albuquerque School District
Bakersfield City School District

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month: How to Get Involved

Posted on Oct 2, 2015 10:04:00 AM

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is now 30 years old! A partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of Imperial Chemical Industries, which is now a part of AstraZeneca, founded NBCAM in order to promote mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer. Throughout the years, additional breast cancer charities, foundations, research groups and corporations, have joined in with events and activities to help spread awareness of the disease and fundraising for research that will help to find a cure. There are many ways to get involved during the month of October and the other 11 months of the year as well. Below we have outlined some events going on right now. Please look carefully at the dates that the events are taking place in your city. These dates can fluctuate based on which state you live in.

September is National Preparedness Month

Posted on Sep 30, 2015 3:00:00 AM
NPM15 logo v6Final2 resized 600

Happy National PrepareAthon Day!  It’s hard to believe that October is approaching and the holidays are right around the corner.  Cyber Monday (online sales that happen the first Monday after Thanksgiving) and Green Monday (usually the second Monday in December) offer up additional marketing opportunities for e-commerce stores. 2015 online sales are expected to break the previous year’s record in 2014, which means another monster peak season for OnTrac.

Not only is September the beginning of fall and the eve of the busy peak season at work, but September is also National Preparedness Month for you and your family’s personal safety at home during any disaster situation.   Everyone is extremely busy with work schedules and it is very important to take a few minutes every day to make sure that you and your families are prepared in case of a disaster.  Natural disaster can occur at any time, at work or home.  There are no schedules or time frames that such events will take place, which is why a plan is always needed.  Today is a day dedicated to taking action to increase community preparedness and resilience.

Below is a list of tips from the National Crime Prevention Council to prepare for what could be the most tragic time in your life or your family’s lives at home or at work.

  • Develop a communications plan for your family. Choose someone who does not live with you (preferably an out-of-town relative or friend) whom you and other family members can contact to check on each other in the event that you are separated during a disaster. Carry that person’s contact information in your purse or wallet.
  • Make sure children know their last name, phone number, address, and number for the out-of-town contact person.
  • Make sure every member of your family knows an alternate route home.
  • If family members can’t get home, designate a meeting place.
  • Know your community’s emergency evacuation route.
  • Learn how to shut off utilities such as gas, electricity, and water.
  • Assemble an emergency preparedness kit that will allow your family to camp out for three days. Assume you’ll be without electricity and running water.
  • Store your emergency supplies in sealed containers such as plastic tubs - taped shut.
  • Keep cash on hand; automated teller machines won’t be working if the power is out.
  • Learn CPR and first aid to help with medical emergencies.
  • Learn about emergency plans for your children’s school or daycare center.
  • If you’re a teen, find out whether your school has a group of student volunteers to help out in emergency situations. If not, offer to help start such a group. Or start a School Crime Watch.
  • Learn about your company’s emergency plan. Practice the plan. Learn exit routes.
  • Work with your Neighborhood Watch or civic association to create a disaster preparedness plan.

On behalf of OnTrac, we would like to wish you a safe and successful peak and holiday season.

Posted on Sep 10, 2015 10:00:00 AM
OnTrac_Employee Spotlight

For this week’s employee spotlight, we are pleased to introduce Leon Shaw Jr. 2015 marks his 27th year with OnTrac. In 1988, Leon started working as a Same-Day Messenger Driver in the Los Angeles region as one of the first drivers for the company. The main requirements of his job would be to run linehauls to Kettleman City, San Diego and the LAX Airport. Vice President of Risk Assessment Mark Cronkrite said, “Wherever he was needed he did the job, no questions asked. He worked a lot of hours for a long time, and his dedication to the company helped build this business.”

Leon is an influential part of OnTrac history and helped shape the company to what it is today. In 1997, Leon retired from his driving career to pursue a sorting position at the Commerce Facility in California. This year marks his 18th year sorting at OnTrac. Commerce General Manager Dennis Crosby said, “He’s a dedicated employee who would do anything to protect the success of the company.” When Leon isn’t sorting, you might catch him following up on his favorite basketball team. He’s a big Los Angeles Lakers fan. Thank you Leon for your commitment, dedication and service! We’re happy to have you a part of the OnTrac team.
