From The Canton Repository:
Motorists traveling the southern edge of Canton certainly have noticed the Pilot Travel Center with its red, yellow and white canopy over the fueling stations.
The prominent truck stop and retail plaza, also known as Pilot Flying J, in the 2300 block of Faircrest Street SW represents the retail end, the final product of the petroleum industry.
But in Carroll County, the Knoxville, Tenn.,-based corporation also is thriving at the front end of the petroleum products industry, the one the consumer seldom sees.
Demand for Pilot Flying J Crude Division’s transport services is to the point where the corporation needs more drivers to haul crude oil from well sites to the refineries.
“Right now we have 24 drivers here in the Carrollton yard,” said Christian Whitlock of Pilot Flying J. “We are looking to hire 10 more. They can’t get enough drivers. It is a drivers’ market right now. We have 14 trucks. There is plenty of it (petroleum) out there. We expect it to be here for a long time.”
Whitlock oversees the Pilot Flying J truck terminal in the 4100 block of Canton Road NW (state Route 43) in Carroll County’s Harrison Township.Continue the article by clicking here.
