Owner Operators & Transport Industries: A Family Built to Succeed

By: Owneroperatorjob.com

Mesquite, TX ? What does it feel like to work for a company that has more than 3,000 Owner Operators? ?We?d like to say it feels like a family,? says Rob Newell, Director of Safety and Contractor Relations. ?We really pay attention to our Contractors and their needs. After all, they are the ones driving our business.? This seems to be the truth and it shows with TI?s low turnover. Not only do they treat their drivers? great, they also give everyone who joins the TI family the backing of one of the best programs around.

But, what does the TI family really offer their Contractors that other companies do not? Well, for starters, it gives Contractors one of the best fuel protection programs in the industry. ?I am always very frustrated to hear about Owner Operators and small fleet owners being driven out of business by the rising cost of fuel,? says Newell. ?TI?s fuel surcharge agreements guarantees fuel costs never affect our Contractors? bottom line.? ?In addition many of our terminals offer on-site fuel at bulk pricing to help control that cost even more and all TI trucks are welcomed at those pumps?.

Their program boasts some of the best home time around. Many of their Contractors are home daily, many are home several times a week, but they all get home at least once every week. This adds to the family oriented direction TI has towards its Contractors. ?We operate strictly in dedicated environments and our freight is steady, recession-proof, and priority status, so we always keep our Contractors moving while still getting them home when they want,? says Newell.

With driver appreciation month upon us, TI wants to let everyone know their Contractors are appreciated year round. They like to call it ?Family Appreciation,? since their drivers are like family. ?We don?t just pat our Contractors on the back once a year, it?s a constant show of thanks,? explains Newell. ?Sure we might be the quiet giants but that doesn?t mean we forget about the people that have made our business move for over 50 years, our Owner Operators.?

Transport Industries was founded and built by hardworking, professional Owner Operators. The company currently has over 3,000 owner operator partners running out of several locations across the country.
