Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma devastated the southern and southeastern U.S. within weeks of each other. Destructive winds, heavy rain, and dangerous flooding have displaced thousands, left millions without power, and caused billions of dollars in damages. 

The Many Benefits of Refurbishing Your Ottawa Truck

We have recently expanded our Ottawa truck refurbishment capabilities because of increased demand.

Labor Day is a special holiday. It marks the end of summer, but more importantly, it is a time to relax and be grateful for our jobs and all that we have. In reverence of Labor Day, Louisville Switching will be closed on Monday, September 4th. We will be spending the day relaxing with our families and loved ones and we hope you will be, too!

When it comes to LinkedIn, we like to put the "social" in social media. LinkedIn is a fantastic tool to connect professionals with one another, to grow your business and expand your network. While other social platforms like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram tend to be a place to interact with friends, relatives, and other social connections, LinkedIn is primarily used for professional purposes setting it apart from the others. Though it is a professional tool, there is still quite an opportunity to build relationships and be social, which we like to take advantage of that!

The canal was widened by 70 feet and is 18 feet deeper than what it was, to begin with. Even with this expansion, the canal uses less water because 60% of the water is recycled.

You have heard of driverless cars and semi truck's coming in the near future, but what about crewless ships? It seems a bit frightening to think of a ship silently navigating the seas with no crew on board, but there could be one as early as 2020 and it will also have zero emissions.
