Content Sponsored by Hurricane Express

An Oklahoma-based refrigerated carrier just announced that they’ll be making big moves to expand their fleet over the next 15 months.

On September 3, Hurricane Express announced that they have placed an order for 150 new 389 Pride & Class Model Peterbilts — ten trucks per month for the next 15 months.

The announcement went viral on Facebook, garnering more than 8,000 likes as well as hundreds of comments and shares in just a few days.

For a company that was founded nearly 3 decades ago with a single truck, the move to expand their current fleet of over 200 trucks by 150 new Peterbilts reflects the rapid growth and success they’ve cultivated over the last several years — even during uncertain times triggered by the Coronavirus crisis. By the end of 2021, the Hurricane Express fleet is projected to be 400 power units strong.

Hurricane’s new X15 powered Pride and Class 389s will be delivered to drivers with multiple premium features, including:

  • 70” stand up
  • 23 gauges
  • 272” WB
  • 5” drop car hauler front end
  • Pete Lo Lo rear suspension
  • 18 speed manual
  • 3:08 rear ends
  • Single bunk
  • Factory refrigerator
  • Slick top cab
  • 22.5 Lo pro tires
  • 16” drop visor with 3/4” bullet lights
  • Hogebuilt 1/4 fenders

The Peterbilt Pride & Class models returned in 2020 after a limited production run in 2014 and 2017.

Hurricane Express has been family owned and operated for more than 28 years. The company specializes in hauling temperature-controlled shipments including meat, seafood, and produce coast-to-coast. Drivers who join the Hurricane family can choose from several job options, including OTR, local and regional, and lease-purchase from almost anywhere in the U.S. To join the team (and maybe score one of the new Petes for yourself), you can click here to get started.
