Full Tilt Transportation is a rapidly growing full-service trucking company headquartered in Reno, Nevada. The ability to reliably move goods around the nation is one of the cornerstones of the U.S. economy and truck drivers play a major role in that arena.
Not only is Reno a major distribution center and supplier of warehouses in Reno NV with a rapidly expanding economy, it is also strategically positioned for west coast distribution with service to the eleven western states with a one-day shipping time. We can reach the eight most western states overnight utilizing the cost savings of ground rates. Access to the I-5 corridor is roughly 90 minutes for service to the California market.
At Full Tilt, we only use expertly maintained, state-of-the-art equipment. Our drivers are friendly, clean, knowledgeable, experienced and safety conscious. We present cost-effective and creative solutions and strive to maintain strong, long lasting relationships with our customers. Our on-time and on-budget deliveries are what other companies strive for. With Full Tilt, you can properly manage trucking costs and adapt to the ever-evolving market. Work with people you trust at all levels with transactional, contractual, route planning and all outsource solutions.
Passion For the Trucking Business
Full Tilt owners have a passion for the business and are fully engaged in the operation and actively seek to improve the company on an ongoing basis. The trucking component of the business is headed up by Cris Novich – Managing Director of Transportation. He is personally engaged with the company’s top clients.
Cris gets out from behind his desk to meet Full Tilt trucking clients face-to-face to form strong bonds with them. He takes a keen interest in his clients’ businesses. He also seeks to establish a personal rapport with all Full Tilt clients that extends beyond the office.
Good leaders understand the trucking business, but no one is an expert in all facets of the trucking business. Over time, they learn those aspects of the business that are not their core competence. Cris has immersed himself in all facets of the trucking business so he can operate the company from a position of strength.
Know the Numbers
Good leaders know all elements of financial statements and challenge every number that is not consistent with normal readings or last year’s numbers. At Full Tilt, we know what to look for and where to get it to set in motion action plans to keep our business on track. We know when it is time to say, “this is not good enough”, “it is not acceptable, and we need to do better”. We don’t tolerate customer complaints or sub-standard service and encourage all employees to find solutions that significantly enhance the value of our customers’ experiences.
Keep Cool and Project a Mature Image to Employees
The trucking business is competitive and challenging. Dealing with driver turnover, rate cuts and equipment shortages takes its toll. It is easy to “lose your cool” and throw a temper tantrum or use inappropriate language. These acts can undermine the confidence of employees and customers and hurt the credibility of Full Tilt leaders. We are constantly aware of maintaining a calm composure which we believe inspires confidence and stability with our employees. At Full Tilt, we emphasize listening to what employees and customers say without interruption. We try to respond in a thoughtful and respectful manner. We believe this will instill openness and trust. This allows problems to surface rather than festering and being hidden from view.
Hire Good People and Follow Through
It’s a priority at Full Tilt to hire and train quality people. We are not afraid to hire great people with ideas that are different from ours. We encourage employee input and are always seeking ways to do things better. There is no such thing as a dumb question. We support our employee team so they can help the company on new and productive paths. We always follow through on a commitment and if we say we’ll do something we will do it. This consistency and transparency a cornerstone of our company culture. We evaluate the information and make timely decisions. At Full Tilt, things happen quickly and we must make decisions without procrastination.
