Our corporate home is located near the intersection of Interstate 15 and Interstate 10 in southern California’s Inland Empire, the region of the west coast most commonly chosen by trucking, logistics, warehousing and distribution companies for their California operations.
Our facility consists of two separate modern buildings on 7.5 acres within 2.5 miles of the I-10 and I-15 intersection and within a twenty-five mile radius of tens of millions of square feet of logistics and distribution operations. Opened in 2005 and expanded in 2013, our facility offers 100,000 square feet of modern warehouse and logistics space with clear spans, 24’ clearance and ESFR (early suppression, fast response) fire systems. The buildings have 54 truck height doors and four drive-on doors. We use a combination of propane and electric fork-lifts of varying size and capacity and operate a fleet of Ottawa yard trucks in support of our operations. The facility, at capacity has parking space for 135 53’ units.

IT: We operate a custom designed Management Information System (MIS) on a Microsoft client/server network. We have a fully secured system with access to three T-1 lines (optical, wireless and wired). Electric power is provided by SCE and an automatic transfer switches transfer our connection to on-site generated power provided by two Generac diesel generators totaling 225 kW capacity. Wireless internet is distributed throughout the facility. Trucks are outfitted with Samsung tablets which utilize proprietary software to communicate between the vehicles and our MIS. The tablets communicate shipment status to our MIS via cellular and simultaneously transfer the vehicles’ GPS location, speed and related data. Dispatch is updated by driver status messaging and, where requested, automated processes distribute the status messages to customers electronically.
Security: Our facility is completely fenced with a combination of block wall and heavy grade, barbed wire-topped, cyclone fence. We have an elevated security office which is manned by a security officer during all non-working hours. We maintain a guard dog on premises that walks post inspections with the duty guard. The entire facility is under video surveillance 24 x 7. Reception, security and select managers have video feeds on their desktop computers. Building entrances are connected to a swipe card system. Personnel are issued swipe cards permitting entry on a pre-planned limited basis. Records are electronically maintained of entry and exit at the facility. Truck gates are steel with automatic secured operators that are in the possession of employees charged with facility access authority. Foreign equipment (equipment not under the control of RDS drivers) is checked in and out and inspected by either Yard Hostler personnel (during operating hours) or Security Personnel (during non-operating hours).
