In 1955, Eagle Transfer Company pioneered the area’s piggyback business with Great Northern Transport. This served as the foundation for Eagle Systems, Inc., thus beginning a successful career as an intermodal terminal management company.
In the 1980’s, following the deregulation of the rail by the Stagger’s Rail Act, Eagle Systems, Inc. seized the opportunities for increased business and expanded its operations by offering services to other areas. In 1981, Eagle Systems, Inc. established operations in the Seattle, Washington area.
Since that time, the company has become a leader in the intermodal industry and has built an impressive reputation by providing quality service with exceptional resources and with personnel that are highly trained, dedicated, and professional.
Eagle Systems, Inc. currently operates facilities nationwide, has operating authority in 48 states, and offers service to Canada as well.
The Eagle Group quality program was developed in-house by a volunteer employee committee. The committee members first received training in quality concepts by an outside entity; they then worked together with the aim of creating a program that would both meet the company’s needs for a system that would help us refine our internal processes and at the same time allow us to interface with many quality programs among our diverse customer base.
Our trained network of quality facilitators is in the midst of spreading the quality processes throughout the Eagle companies by means of an eight module self-teaching manual, which is reviewed in small group discussions as the employees are brought along in the processes. Upon completion of the training, each employee receives a certificate and lapel pin signifying their participation in the program.
Various company representatives serve on and with customer quality programs.

Employees are an extremely valuable resource for the Eagle Group; their health and safety is a serious company concern. It is the policy of the company to prevent substance use or abuse from having an adverse effect on our employees. The company maintains that the work environment is safer and more productive without the presence of alcohol and/or illegal or inappropriate drugs in the body or on company property.
Furthermore, employees have the right to work in an alcohol-free and drug-free environment, and to work with employees free from the effects of alcohol and drugs. Employees who abuse alcohol or use drugs are a danger to themselves, their coworkers, and the company’s assets.
The Eagle Group companies are committed to maintaining a drug-free workplace. All employees are advised that remaining drug-free, and medically qualified to work, are conditions of continued employment with the Eagle Group. Specifically, it is the policy of the company that the use, sale, purchase, transfer, possession or presence in one’s system of any controlled substance (except medically prescribed drugs) by any employee while on company premises, engaged in company business, while operating commercial motor vehicle equipment and machinery, or while under the authority of any Eagle company is strictly prohibited. Company policy extends mandatory testing to all employees in the workplace.
Although several states have legalized recreational marijuana, it remains a federally prohibited drug, is banned for DOT regulated drivers, and poses a threat in the varied safety sensitive locations we operate. As such, Eagle Group’s zero tolerance policy includes marijuana. You may not have a detectable level of marijuana in your system while at work, even if the marijuana was not consumed immediately before or during work.
The execution and enforcement of this policy will follow set procedures to screen body fluids (urinalysis), and conduct breath testing. These procedures are designed not only to detect violations of this policy, but to ensure fairness to each employee. Every effort will be made to maintain the dignity of employees and employee applicants involved. Disciplinary action will, however, be taken as necessary.
