Director of Administration, Steve Hitchcock states, "It's exciting to do business with a company that is aligned with our commitment to green technology...people often think of trucking as a dirty industry; however, we are committed to running newer, cleaner trucks."

Duncan and Son Lines, Inc. is the leading hauler of solar panels, equipment, and components in the Southwestern United States. The current reach of Duncan and Son Lines’ solar experience spans across the Southwest from California to Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. The breadth of companies nears twenty and includes such industry heavyweights as Suntech, First Solar, Rio Glass, AES, Solon, Schott Solar, and Saint Gobain just to name a few. Partnering with companies who also adopt green initiatives is important to Duncan and Son Lines.

Steve Hitchcock, Director of Administration for Duncan and Son Lines states, “It's exciting to do business with a company that is aligned with our commitment to green technology. People often think of trucking as a dirty industry. However, we are committed to running newer, cleaner trucks. We're also committed to burning as little fuel as possible and minimizing our carbon footprint and impact on the environment. Our solar energy customers share this commitment and we want to continue to partner with these types of companies."

Duncan and Son Lines’ solar manufacturing customers offer end-to-end power solutions including full solar plant construction, project development, financing, materials procurement, and even the actual operating control of the solar power plants. Ocean container logistics is a key cog in this end-to-end model. Duncan and Son Lines is the trusted and preferred trucking partner by the major players in the Southwest solar industry. The solar industry realizes the value of having a world class carrier who can provide on-time delivery, warehousing, and creative solutions to a rapidly growing and changing industry. Duncan and Son Lines is agile enough to handle a wide variety of commodities including furniture, pet supplies, paper products, household appliances, foods and beverages, construction supplies and materials, etc. However, it’s these solar products which are growing and quickly becoming a large part of Duncan’s operation.

Hitchcock added, "We've certainly seen an incremental increase to our container import and export business because of these solar projects. While this number varies depending on the week or month, it can be as much as 10-15% of our business. As the leading import/export drayage company in the state, any increase in any industry's import/export business has a positive effect on us. It's exciting to be a part of the job creation here in Arizona and the Southwest.”

Duncan and Son Lines, Inc. is a next-generation trucking solution provider focused on moving international cargoes between the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to and from service areas in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, California, Texas, and Northern Mexico.
