When fans in the arena or at home watch the NCAA men’s and women’s Final Four, they will not be aware of the critical role of trucking in making the events happen.
The basketball courts are trucked to the destinations of the championships. The men will be playing in Phoenix and the women in Dallas. Doug Andrus Distributing hauled the floors from Idaho Falls, Idaho. Multiple trucks were used to haul the floors. Each floor has between 50-100 pallets weighing between 1800-2000 lbs. All the pallets are labeled and go into a specific spot. They are unloaded and put together like big jigsaw puzzle.
Once the tournament ends, the floors will be trucked back to Idaho, and the winning schools will be given the opportunity to purchase the floors at a discount.
