OnTrac Opens Their Largest Facility Yet!

Posted on Jul 5, 2017 1:00:00 AM

In June 2017 OnTrac welcomed to the public their biggest facility yet in Fontana, California. The nearly 600,000 square foot facility is over five times the size of the two previous OnTrac facilities in nearby Ontario. Although it is the largest facility, the Fontana location is one of 19 facilities in the state of California. With 115 dock doors and the ability to move 8,000 packages an hour, the Fontana facility will service the entire Inland Empire.


OnTrac plans to fully automate the Fontana facility next year. Giving it the ability to move 35,000 packages an hour. By processing packages faster and minimizing time in the facility, the packages can be loaded and arrive at their destination faster.


Laura Peterson, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing says, “This facility is important to us. Not only is it our newest facility.  It is also our largest at just under 600,000 square feet. We have improved our square footage by five or six times and we've tripled the number of employees. And more exciting is that next year, we plan on fully automating this building, which I believe will make us the first regional carrier to have a fully automated facility.”


With the expansion in facility size and additional packages, OnTrac has also tripled the number of staff. There are over 300 people employed at this facility and OnTrac is still hiring today. As peak season approaches, OnTrac will be hiring additional sorters to manage the influx of holiday shipping. Currently, OnTrac is hiring a total of 17 positions between AM Package Handlers, PM Package Handlers, IR Package Handlers, and a Linehaul Dispatch. For more information and to apply, please go to

OnTrac celebrated the grand opening of their second facility in Phoenix, Arizona and their third facility statewide. Arizona is also home to their Corporate Headquarters in Chandler. The second Phoenix location is over double in square footage to the first Phoenix facility. OnTrac employees were joined by customers, the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, business partners and the Phoenix community for a celebration lunch, a ribbon cutting ceremony and facility tours.


The theme for the celebration was growth. Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Laura Peterson welcomed the guests and kicked off the event by introducing OnTrac General Manager Matthew Fagnano and Regional Sales Manager Brian Schnakenberg. Matthew Fagnano spoke to the company’s healthy growth plans by explaining that, “The Phoenix facility is designed to be an expandable system in terms of the material handling, which will allow OnTrac to continue to service the needs of the West Valley and grow with the community.” With over 200,000 square feet, OnTrac is planning the expansions well in advance for this Phoenix facility with an eye towards the future.

Green Living

Posted on Apr 20, 2017 11:11:03 AM

Going green means much more than choosing the paperless billing option. Although that is a huge first step to making an impact, there are many ways you can go green in your daily life.  Most ways to live a green lifestyle are simple to implement, cost little to no money, and can have a huge impact on natural resources and the environment.

spam-964521_1280 (1).jpg

The average person receives 69 pounds of junk mail to their home each year. According to the EPA, over 50% of junk mail is not recycled. It also takes an average of 4,000 gallons of water to produce one ton of paper, and the junk mail industry uses 10-24 billion gallons of water each year. Putting an end to junk mail will save more than trees, it will also save water, fuel, energy, and many other resources. It is simple to unsubscribe from junk mail.  Contact the company via phone or email and ask to be removed from the mailing list. Until the opt-out starts working, here are some creative uses for junk mail.

  • Recycle It: 50% of junk mail is not recycled, be sure to place yours in a recycle bin.
  • Compost It: Most paper and ink is non-toxic, put it through the shredder for use as compost.
  • Packaging Material: Shred or crumble it to use as sustainable packaging material.
  • Animal Bedding: Shred it and use it on the bottom of a hamster or bird cage.
  • Crafts: Recycled papers are great for collages, paper Mache and much more.water.jpg

    Another easy way to go green is to give up the use of plastic water bottles. On average, 30 billion plastic water bottles are sold in the US, and less than 20% are actually recycled. Switching to a stainless steel reusable water bottle could save up to $200 a month on water. Stainless steel water bottles hold up better, and longer than disposable or reusable plastic bottles, which can crack easily or damage in the sun. Plastic also contains chemicals such as BPA, giving up plastic water bottles can eliminate any health risk.


    Green transportation is another affordable way to implement sustainable living. About 30% of vehicles do not have properly inflated tires, which can increase fuel costs by 10%. Tires with low pressure can also reduce the life of the tire by one year, and can increase the likelihood of damage. Checking for proper inflation on tires is good for the vehicle, and the environment. 

    Living a car-less lifestyle is another way to reduce environmental impact and go green. If living car-less is not a feasible option, try living less-car. Living without a car in rural areas is more difficult than urban settings, but there are many alternative modes of transportation. Carpool is a great option for transportation to work and school. This can help save on emissions and gas. Public transportation is almost always an option, from busses to trains or zip cars, many cities and towns offer group transportation options. Riding a bicycle is one of the quickest modes of manual transportation. With streets lined with bike lines, most cities are biker friendly and offer routes just for bicyclists.


    Going green can easily be implemented into daily routines, and can help save money while improving quality of life. Getting rid of junk mail, water bottles and alternative modes of transportation are a great way to implement sustainable living into daily life. With the right alternatives and transitions, anyone can make their lifestyle a sustainable one.

Employee Spotlight- Mike Harris

Posted on Feb 3, 2017 10:42:21 AM

At OnTrac, we love to feature our employees for the hard work and dedication they show every day. This week, we are featuring our first employee spotlight of 2017, highlighting Mike Harris from the engineering department.

Mike Harris Photo.jpg

When Mike Harris first started with OnTrac in 2014, he was providing field engineering support for the Southwest Region. Now Mike Harris is the Senior Manager of Industrial Engineering for OnTrac. He has been an influential part of the OnTrac Engineering team and its development. He is responsible for the field engineering of both line haul and operations. To explain further, Mike says, “In line haul engineering, we are determining when and how we should move equipment to best meet the needs of our customers.  The Field Engineers are focused on sort productivity, cost reductions, Pickup and Delivery Service, and new facility planning.” 

Prior to OnTrac, Mike worked for FedEx Ground for 12 years as a Reginal Operations Engineering Manager, Hub Industrial engineer and an Administrative Process engineer. Mike received his Bachelors of Science in Industrial Engineering from West Virginia University, and moved on to receive his MBA from Mount St. Mary’s University.  

One of Mike’s favorite parts of his job is the people. Mike feels strongly that OnTrac is made up of “amazing people that want to make a difference. It makes being an engineer pretty easy.” Mike is an influential part of OnTrac, and has helped shape what it is today. When Mike isn’t managing the line haul, or operations, he enjoys a good book. The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Dubois is a favorite of his, or you can catch him quoting his favorite movie, Big Trouble in Little China. Now “What more could you ask for”-Jack Burton.
