The Salisbury Terminal is Eagle’s northernmost terminal on the east coast. Located just outside of Salisbury, MD, the terminal is actually located in the rural area of Hebron, MD, with satellite locations in New Castle, DE and Baltimore, MD. Together these locations service customers throughout the states of Maryland, Delaware, southeast Pennsylvania and the Eastern Shore of Virginia, loading out of fifteen different loading terminals in Salisbury, MD, Baltimore, MD, Delaware City, DE, Philadelphia, PA and Paulsboro, NJ… and yes it takes a lot to get a driver carded at every terminal!
Don Ewalt, District Manager, Matt Propper, Salisbury Terminal Manager, and Zach Rinck, Delaware City Operations Manager, lead the Salisbury team currently consisting of 33 transport drivers, 2 dispatchers, 3 mechanics and a billing clerk. Salisbury has had 13 “President’s Million Mile Club” members over the years. Currently active is Two Million Mile member Forrest Williams, and One Million Mile members Craig Wainwright, Jose Pineda, Tommy Thompson, Rayvon Truitt, Rusty Cockey, and Don Callahan. We would also like to mention PMMC member, Tommy Northern, who tragically lost his life on the job in 2009.
But the heart of office operations is run by Billing Clerk, Christie Wilson, who has an outstanding 21 years of experience with Eagle, as well as dispatchers Lucas Ennis with three years of experience, and Doug Anderson with 22 years of experience, both as a driver and dispatcher. Together they keep the terminal running, the customers happy and the drivers moving.
In Salisbury’s shop is Foreman Timothy Cannon, and Mechanics Ron Adams, and Cody Jones. Not only do they service trucks in Salisbury, but also regularly travel to Baltimore and Delaware City every few days to keep Salisbury’s fleet of 20 units running at peak performance. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, Salisbury battles coastal beach traffic, Chesapeake Bay Bridge traffic and high sales to keep up with customer’s demand for product.
Salisbury Joins Eagle’s Chemical Distribution Business
Starting in January, Salisbury began hauling L-lysine, a food supplement in chicken feed, for Archer Daniels Midland, a 100+ year old agrobusiness company from the Midwest. These loads are shorts hauls delivered to several chicken feed mills on the Delmarva Peninsula within Salisbury’s local area creating a perfect match for Eagle and a good addition to Salisbury’s customer portfolio.
Salisbury & Richmond Terminals Receive Hauler of the Year Award
In December, the Salisbury terminal, together with the Richmond terminal, received SMO’s (Southern Maryland Oil) inaugural Hauler of the Year Award. These Eagle teams beat out many competitors to earn this award for the Delaware and Richmond markets. While SMO said they had not previously granted a hauler award like this, it did so this past year because Eagle stood out among the other haulers for their fast and courteous replies to requests and emails, as well their exceptional service. This goes to prove that good service does not go unnoticed. And get ready, because both Salisbury and Richmond are up to the challenge of earning the award again for 2020!
