Quality Distribution Inc. Family of Companies

Consistent Corporate Brand Experience Across 4 High-Functionality Websites

Quality Distribution


Quality Distribution Inc. (QDI), operates the largest bulk tank truck network in North America. QDI is the core processing, transportation and delivery services carrier of choice for many of the global chemical processing corporations in the Fortune 500, including Dow Chemical Company, Procter & Gamble, E.I. Dupont, and PPG Industries.

With over 125 offices (terminals) across North America, and more than 3,000 drivers and franchises, the Quality Distribution Inc. family of additional transportation and services companies includes:

  • Quality Carriers, Inc., the largest bulk transportation company in North America, combining the largest fleet of stainless steel tanks with the industry’s broadest and most complete terminal network.
  • QC Energy Resources, a leading transportation and logistics vendor serving the oil and gas sector.
  • Boasso America, a premier intermodal service company providing tank container cleaning, heating, testing, maintenance, storage, and transportation, with associated equipment sales.

Quality Distribution, Inc. partnered with Bayshore Solutions to develop branding structure and online consistency across its companies. QDI needed to create four websites to address distinct sectors within their transportation services operations while maintaining the feel of the corporate brand and integrity of web user experience throughout this family of corporate websites. As a significant amount of the users of QDI websites are on the road and any given time, the company needed to provide seamless access to complex data on any size screen.

Bayshore Solutions conducted a “Story” analysis to gain clear visibility and deep understanding of QDI’s business, market and customer dynamics. This effort identified strategic target audiences and produced appropriate personas for specific messaging.  Bayshore Solutions selected the Kentico CMS platform to build the four websites under the QDI corporate umbrella.
