Kenan Advantage Group – Tank Truck Transporters & Logistics Provider

💭 Tim Tibbs, Director of Operations East

#KAGStory

“Here in Bethlehem, we have been supplying Oxygen to the hospitals in New York City and New Jersey. All of our drivers have stepped up their game and have gone above and beyond without question.

Two drivers, in particular, have shared stories with me that made them feel something they never felt before.”

1️⃣ Tim Barnes was delivering in New York City and the fire department was clearing a call. When they noticed our truck coming down the street, they stood together and clapped and gave our driver a thumbs up because they knew he was delivering Oxygen to the hospitals.

Tim said, “As I drive by the firehouse, I look at them as heroes and when they cheered as I drove by, I felt like I was the hero. I was honored to have them do that. It made me feel

Used Cars for Sale – Autotrader

With recent advancements in automotive technology and engineering, the current used market is better than ever. There’s almost as much variety on the used market as there is on the new market with cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and even hybrids and EVs that have gone through depreciation making them stronger values.

Pros: The biggest pro of buying a used car is value. Like we mentioned earlier, a used car can lose a lot of its value in not a lot of time. If you really keep an eye out for which cars depreciate the fastest, it’s possible to get a used car that’s as little as three years old for less than half the price that is was when it was new.

With used cars being more affordable than their new counterparts, it brings a wider variety of options to drivers with a lower car budget. For example, a luxury

A Transportation Vision for 2020: Is It 20/20?

WHAT do you call a long bullet-shaped vehicle with rubber tires that zips along roads, stops for traffic lights and carries lots of people?

Whatever you call it, don’t call it a bus.

After four years of study and a cost so far of $6.5 million, engineers working on the Long Island Transportation Plan 2000 are presenting their preliminary proposals to manage Long Island’s traffic 20 years from now. The linchpin of their solution is a transit system with a sleek bus that’s a dead ringer for a monorail car except for the tires. But transportation officials are loath to use the ”B” word to describe it.

”People have an image of a bus,” said David Rettig, the Long Island planning director for the State Department of Transportation, which is overseeing the study. ”A bus is crowded, it smells of diesel fumes, it’s stuck in traffic. That’s not happening with

What is Transport Geography? | The Geography of Transport Systems

Author: Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue

Transport geography is a sub-discipline of geography concerned about the mobility of people, freight and information and its spatial organization considering attributes and constraints related to the origin, destination, extent, nature and purpose of movements.

The unique purpose of transportation is to overcome space, which is shaped by a variety of human and physical constraints such as distance, time, administrative divisions and topography. Jointly, they confer a friction to any movement, commonly known as the friction of distance (or friction of space). In an ideal world, transportation would come at no effort in terms of cost and time and would have unlimited capacity and spatial reach. Under such circumstances, geography would not matter. In the real world, however, geography can be a significant constraint to transport since it trades space for time and money and can only be partially circumscribed. The extent to which this is

Witch on a Bicycle | I’m building a car from scratch with zero budget, watch me go insane

Things were bought, (way too much) money was spent. Legs were worn out, and my butt hurts from way too much sitting on deliberately uncomfortable benches. Not joking on that, DART was forced to buy benches that are only comfortable for the short duration so as to discourage homeless people from sleeping on them.

Now for what I bought, I had a coupon for kitchen shears for only $0.39 so I had to get a pair because our current set has gone walkabout. They work OK and did a decent job at cutting the clamshell packaging on the rest of my purchases.

I also had a coupon for a battery charger for $4, but that was a not-so-good purchase. There is a circuit that detects if there is voltage present before sending current to the terminals to prevent overloading the trickle charger, which basically turns it off if you aren’t

Transportation One

If you ask him how he made it happen, Teets credits a foundation of hard work and a drive to learn from the best – including his grandfather, a successful entrepreneur, and his alma mater, the Indiana University Kelley School of Business.

He’s laid the foundation and now wants Transportation One to grow bigger, faster and stronger, with investments in talent and technology at the core of his strategy to maintain exponential growth.

Since Transportation One’s first day, it grew twenty times larger by revenue. With that sort of exponential growth, sustainability is paramount. Along with cultivating a top-notch workforce, Teets sees technology as a core investment vehicle for Transportation One.

Teets’ early-adoption of proprietary technology will sustainably accelerate the next phase of the business and ensure it remains at the top of the freight industry.

“We are scaling the organization with some of the best talent in the industry

How Car Suspensions Work | HowStuffWorks

When people think of automobile performance, they normally think of horsepower, torque and zero-to-60 acceleration. But all of the power generated by a piston engine is useless if the driver can’t control the car. That’s why automobile engineers turned their attention to the suspension system almost as soon as they had mastered the four-stroke internal combustion engine.

The job of a car suspension is to maximize the friction between the tires and the road surface, to provide steering stability with good handling and to ensure the comfort of the passengers. In this article, we’ll explore how car suspensions work, how they’ve evolved over the years and where the design of suspensions is headed in the future.

If a road were perfectly flat, with no irregularities, suspensions wouldn’t be necessary. But roads are far from flat. Even freshly paved highways have subtle imperfections that can interact with the wheels­ of a
