“The formula is this… hire the best, treat them right, become as efficient as possible and share the dividends with the people who make it happen.”

Our professional drivers are the heart and soul of our company which is why we work hard everyday to be the best place to work in the country.

While we can’t promise everyday will go off without a hitch, we can promise that we will work as hard as anyone to get you miles and get you home.

We know our formula is working; our average turnover over the last 5 years has averaged 22% while the national average hovers over 90%.
