Family-owned Groendyke Transport, Inc. is one of the largest tank-truck carriers in the nation. With 41 terminals in 15 states, Groendyke has more than 85 years of expertise in liquid bulk shipping. Plans for the Oklahoma Turner Turnpike to demolish Groendyke’s existing Tulsa truck terminal to make room for a new highway meant a new terminal was needed, quickly.
Crossland was hired to build the massive structure, which included 10+ acres of concrete paving for semi-truck parking and a 22,000 SF newly constructed metal building with concrete tilt walls. The new facility includes four bays for truck maintenance, office space and conference room, a dispatch area, and a spacious driver lounge and showers.
In order to meet the consolidated deadline, Crossland self-performed the key construction activities to streamline the process and maintain much more control over the schedule. Given the resulting efficiencies, the new terminal was completed on time and within budget. Groendyke can now handle a higher volume of trucks in a more streamlined capacity.
