A Custom Volvo VNL Named Turbo Turtle

“Fast enough to get it done. Slow enough to get it right.And green enough to be remembered.”Robert Brackett, President of Turbo Turtle Logistics, is the proud owner of the aptly dubbed “Turbo Turtle.” He’s been driving for 20 years and trusts his Volvo VNL to efficiently haul from North Dakota to Texas, from the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River.

“Compared to my previous truck, I was able to cut my fuel tanks down from 100 gallons to 75 gallons, each while still maintaining the same driving range,” he said.


Soon another Turbo Turtle will be traveling the roads in the Midwest and beyond. Brackett has placed an order for a 2017 Volvo VNL 630 model that includes the Volvo I-Shift with Crawler Gears. I-Shift with Crawler Gears is a new option designed for applications where slow speed maneuverability and startability are needed.

“The struggle with building a small company is being recognized, and it means something when our customers remember us,” Brackett said. “Turbo Turtle represents everything that we do. It’s fast enough to get it done, slow enough to get it right and green enough to be remembered.”
