CDJ Bulk Express, Inc. was founded by John and Dawn Popovich in April of 1991 to be one thing:
the best long-haul, dump trailer operation on the east coast. Their oldest son Johnny immediately
came on board to help grow the family business. CDJ has seen a slow, steady growth into a 70
truck fleet that operates in 28 states and over the following years, we have established ourselves
as a powerhouse in the long-haul dump business. The addition of Chad Popovich, the youngest
son, in 2008, as serious part of the business, completed the family environment.
We are the best, plain and simple; we do it better, we do it more reliably, we do it safer.
By definition we are a family business, since almost the entire Popovich family works here, but we
are not the “family” business that some would expect us to be. We are a corporation and a for
profit carrier that runs 70 trucks, which means that while we care immensely about our drivers,
and how our decisions affect them, we are also concerned about the bottom line: staying
profitable so we can continue our tradition of being the best. We started as a mom and pop outfit
with 3 trucks. Are we still that outfit? Nope. Are we something different? Yep. Are we better? Yes.
The world is a different place than it was in 1991. But things change and we’ll all have to change
with it. Not always because that’s what we want to do, but because that’s what we have to do.
That all being said, we are still one thing and one thing only: the best long-haul, dump trailer
operation on the east coast. We do what we do and we do it well.
We are known for being a hard working company that expects nothing but the best from our
drivers. We make sure everyone gives 100%, because if they don’t, our other drivers have to pick
up their slack. We stake our reputation on servicing our customers, who depend on our trucks
being there the next morning. Nobody stockpiles anymore. It’s all “just in time” deliveries. So if we’
re late it can put our customers in a dilemma. If they don’t have raw materials, they can’t make
steel coils. If farmers don’t have feed, cows don’t eat. You know the saying “if you bought it, a
truck brought it?” Well the truck has to be there on time for that to be true; because if we’re late,
there won’t be anything on the shelf to buy.
That said, we now live in the age of regulation, emissions requirements by the EPA, increased
congestion, distracted drivers and aging infrastructure. All of this makes your job much, much
harder. You have to be on your “A-game” at all times out there or bad things can happen and
people can get hurt. Trucking is a tough job and a serious business and should be treated as such.
You are in control of 80,000 lbs. traveling at 70 MPH and it does not stop on a dime. Be safe, be
smart, be able to go home and see your family, and make sure others can do the same. You are
the professional and we trust you.
