Synergistiks, Inc. -- Johnstown, PA
« on: July 07, 2012, 07:45:54 AM »
Synergistiks, Inc. is a 49 power unit fleet, according to SAFER, based in Johnstown, PA. I've been seeing them quite a bit lately, so I figured I'd start a thread for them.

Every one I've seen has been a Cascadia, so I'm not sure what else, if anything, they have.

I can't remember if I have a picture of any trucks from this fleet but I have seen them and they've all been Freightliner Cascadias.

Guess you learn something every day. I never knew they were from Johnstown, that probably explains why they are a very common sight around here, being only about 60 miles away from here. I don't think I've saw anything but Cascadias, too.

Good afternoon fella's!!!! I have been with Synergistiks Inc. for 2 years now. Im also a company trainer.

Over the summer we acquired J-Line Transportation from Altoona Pa and right now we are between 65-70 power units. All are Cascadia's except 2 of our old Columbia's. #135 and 138 are the Columbia's and I am now the pilot of #138

We are based out of Johnstown Pa, our HR/ Tech office is in Johnstown while our dispatch office has relocated to the former J-Line offce in Altoona. Out repair facility is located a few miles west of Johnstown on rt 56 in Windber at the ground of the former Tokarsky Trucking Company. In addition to the repair shop we have a drop/trailer storage yard down the road from Pepsi of Johnstown, a drop yard at the office in Altoona as well as drop lots in Carlisle Pa, and in Cochranton Pa. We haul just about anything in mostly the Eastern lanes. Most of our runs are in the OH,WV,MD,VA,NC,NJ,NY,VT,CT,NH,MA regions and occasionally runs into IN, IL, MI, WI, KY. I dont recall how many trailers we have right this moment but we just took delivery of 10 more this week and if my memory serves me correctly we are in the 125-150 range on trailers with the oldest trailer in the fleet being around 3 years old. I believe the plan on tractors is replacement every 2-3 years and 4-5 years on trailers.

Fitz, here's a link to another Johnstown Co.

http://hankstruckforum.com/htforum/index.php?topic=15366.msg127050#msg127050

Wright Motor Lines is another from the area (now Wright-Knox, out of Armagh)

McQuaide folded their LTL operation several years ago, but I believe the truckload division is still going (MTL).

Paul that's cool. Wonder if the terminal is at what used to be Pops diner. Kaplan and B P had their terminals in that lot. Never realized any other carriers based in Johnstown probably didn't pay any mind to it. Armagh also had Ohio Fast Freight and Sentil. Back when times were good.

Here's a very clean Cascadia rolling along I-81 south near Scott, PA.

Just thought i'd add a contribution since I haven't been on here for a while,
Caught these 2 FL Cascadias last August, one with a Ryder lease at Smokeys Restaurant and Truck Stop in Bath, NY.

Nice shot Paul!

This newer Cascadia was sitting in a parking lot in Indiana, PA this past Saturday.
