What Makes Us Different?


We offer Peterbilt 389 and 579 models that are traded every 2-3 years. We take pride in making sure our drivers are in safe equipment that they enjoy driving. Our entire fleet offers features near owner-operator specifications.


Many potential drivers that we speak with explain their frustration with being treated like "just a number" at their current employer. That is one thing we try to combat by offering direct dispatch with your driver manager. We are "old-school" in our dispatching methods, but many drivers appreciate the family-owned atmosphere that they experience with us.


We offer a top pay scale for this type of freight in the industry. But, we don't cut your miles or make excuses when it comes to our competitive pay scale. Our drivers average 2,800 miles per week and run primarily in the southeast. We also recently introduced a monthly bonus program for our regional/OTR drivers that can earn you an additional $0.03 per mile!
