Dedicated delivery fleet—part of the “Page 1 Difference”

Page 1 Printers is located in Slayton, Minnesota, tucked away in the southwestern part of the state. But our reach goes quite a bit beyond the local prairie communities.

Our dedicated fleet of delivery trucks make multiple weekly trips to Fargo-Moorhead, Omaha and Lincoln, Des Moines, Minneapolis and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. In fact, we’ll make deliveries pretty much anywhere within a 300 mile radius of our home base in southwest Minnesota.

This means that we have a significant advantage over printers that are at the mercy of freight and shipping companies to get your order to you on time. Of course, when it makes sense, we also use some outside delivery services, but our first choice is usually our own fleet. This allows us to control not only the production of your printed piece, but its actual delivery. As printers, we understand what a deadline is—and that understanding is shared by our delivery drivers and dispatchers.

The fleet itself is a good indication of how seriously we take this competitive advantage. We have a 5-year plan to keep all five units new and reliable. The trucks range from a full-sized semi and trailer to a standard cargo van; in between, we have one cube van and two straight trucks for those situations where large volume is needed, but the space available simply won’t accommodate a semi. Our three large trucks have lift-gates, because we know that only some of our customers have actual loading docks.

To increase our flexibility, improve communication and extend customer service even further, we have Fleetmatic GPS in all our trucks. This allows us to see exactly where each unit of the fleet is at any given time, so that we can answer when you call and ask exactly where your order is! The GPS units also provide for alert messaging, so that we don’t have to depend on sketchy cellular coverage. In other words, we can always get your message to our driver.
