Tons of Open Deck Freight for Owner Operators

Ready to get your business back into gear? It’s your truck and your future, and Mercer Transportation has plenty of flatbed freight to help you succeed as an owner-operator! Last year was rough for the whole trucking industry, particularly flatbedders, but Mercer offers the stability of a massive freight network (over 12,000 customers) and quick payments after each load. The shippers are back in business, and now we need more drivers to keep up with freight.

Expenses add up, and that’s why Mercer helps owner-operators with steep discounts on fuel, tires, insurance, and more. You can pick your preferred freight or work with a load coordinator. However you choose to run your business, you’re more than just a number with Mercer. With over 40 years in the industry, we’ve seen our share of tough times. As the economy rebounds, we need trucking professionals who are ready and motivated for success.
