About ETI “Hot Shot Trucking”

ETI (Allentown, PA) was founded in 1977 as a “hot shot trucking” delivery service to handle emergency, same day pick ups and deliveries. Our fleet consisted of 2 leased vans and our facility was in the basement of one of the owners. We had no experience in the “trucking business”, no ICC/PUC authority, no customers. What we did have was the heartfelt belief that a company who provided excellent service for a reasonable price would find success in any marketplace.

ETI Hot Shot Trucking Owners

Owner Rick Sauers

Our founders came from a purchasing background for a large manufacturing company. In dealing with hundreds of vendors daily, they realized the value of choosing reliable partners who could be counted on to help them accomplish their jobs. They set out to become that kind of partner and found a ready audience of customers who needed their service. After 45 years of partnership, the owners decided on a purchase agreement, and became a solely owned company to enhance the longevity and pursuit of the long term goals based on ETI’s continued success. Since the purchase agreement, ETI has seen continued growth and have established themselves as a premier partner in the transportation industry within the region.

We acquired ICC/PUC rights, we got our experience one day at a time, we added services based on customer requests, and we grew to become a leader in the expedited transportation field.
