Message from the Owners


It has been said that the integrity of a person can be judged by the standards they set for themselves. The same can be said for the integrity of a company. At Terpening, we set very high standards for ourselves in regards to safety, staff, and the commitments we make to our customer partners.

We have an above-average safety record. We invest in experienced individuals, maintain our fleet, and foster a company-wide atmosphere of “safety first.” We hire the best and treat them well. Our drivers receive exceptional training and benefits, resulting in an extremely low turnover rate. In fact, many of our drivers have been with us for over 15 years. We are fully insured. You might assume your carrier is fully insured—but the fact is that many transport carriers are not. It’s just one more standard we set for ourselves that sets us apart from others.

In closing, here’s the question to ask yourself: are you wasting valuable time following up on your carrier and solving their problems or dealing with issues like safety, scheduling, or a general lack of professionalism from them on your site? Instead, make one call to Terpening. It’s as simple as that.
If you are an existing customer, we sincerely thank you for choosing us as your fuel transport partner. If you are a potential customer, please feel free to contact us any time for a free rate quote or to discuss how we can meet your transport needs.
