Being an independent contractor can have its benefits, but there are also many stressful aspects that owner-operators face. Joining the C&M Transport team can relieve truckers of these challenges, providing protection and assistance for easy and convenient travel. Here’s why owner-operator trucking companies should apply now for our available truck driver jobs.
C&M Transport is run by individuals with extensive experience as road drivers. This means we fully understand what truck drivers endure in the field. We resonate with the many challenges truck drivers face daily, such as fuel expenses, Hours of Service (HOS) regulations, rejected shipments, and more. This is what makes C&M Transport an ideal candidate for owner-operator trucking companies. We cover the costs associated with fuel expenses and rejected shipments. This way, liability for rejected shipments does not fall solely on owner-operators.
Covered fuel expenses also save owner-operators from paying for costly maintenance. In addition, our knowledge in the industry allows us to be a helpful resource for drivers, making C&M Transport one of the best trucking companies to work for.
By working with C&M Transport, owner-operators can save money on the costly expenses that come with being an independent contractor. We provide many financial benefits for truckers, such as:
- Paid mileage
- Diesel fuel coverage
- Compensation for maintenance permit fees
- No sign-on costs
C&M Transport also offers advantages for truckers who practice safe driving. Without a reliable logistics company, independent contractors would have to pay these fees themselves.
Choose Your Role
There are many owner-operator trucking jobs that truckers can apply for at C&M Transport. We accommodate the different needs truckers may have to give them the freedom they need. C&M Transport offers roles for:
- Long haul drivers: This job requires that truckers drive long distances to deliver products.
- Delivery drivers: These drivers are in charge of transporting goods locally from the warehouse to their final location or completing expedited services.
Depending on their needs, truckers can choose a role that works best with their schedule. In addition, the number of drivers wanted across the country is increasing, which means you can always have a stable trucking schedule to avoid stress and worry.
Low Deadhead Miles
Deadhead mileage is a term used to reference truckers who drive empty loads to another location. This can occur after a load is dropped off and there is nothing for drivers to take back with them. This means truckers must drive an empty load to another destination for pick-up. This forces truckers to waste gas and time traveling to other locations for loads. It also means that no money is being made for deadhead travel.
By working with C&M Transport, owner-operators can make the most out of their time on the road. Not only do we provide low deadhead mileage, but truckers can also rest assured that they have consistent, stable loads during the whole transportation process. This means they can collect an income for most of their trips.
Customize Your Routes
As an owner-operator, you probably already have your own truck to make hauls. Because of this, you can have the freedom to choose your schedule, routes, and what you haul even while working for a logistics company. At C&M Transport, we never force dispatch. This makes it easier for independent contractors to take charge of their schedules.
While being an independent contractor also allows you to make your schedule and pick your routes, there won’t always be times when you’ll have a load to transport. This can lead to deadhead travel, which results in no income. Working with C&M Transport provides truckers the opportunity to choose their own routes and schedules while also maintaining consistent work.
