Today, we have James Martin with Keystone Transport and Diamond Fleet Services here with us. James is the owner of Keystone Transport, which started in 2014 delivering high end, blanket wrapped furniture to stores and designers.
Shortly after, James started Diamond Fleet Service, a diesel truck repair and maintenance shop for light-, medium-, and heavy-duty trucks with visions to include upcoming Tesla semi maintenance needs, which we will definitely talk more about.
