Bay & Bay Transportation is looking for owner/operator truck drivers for our van division in Minnesota, the Midwest, and along the East Coast.
The average person assumes that there is just one type of truck driver. The typical persona would be someone that works for a company to deliver goods by driving a truck and trailer. Apart from the different divisions in trucking, there are also different ways to be employed in the industry. A popular choice is to be an owner/operator truck driver.
What does it mean to be an owner/operator? Owner/operators are self-employed truck drivers. This would be similar to the owner of a restaurant that also acts as the bartender on weeknights, or a freelance writer for a newspaper. There was an increase in owner/operators after the Motor Carrier Act of 1980, which made it easier for manufacturers and companies to find affordable transportation services to fit their needs, whether with an individual driver or a large company.
Bay & Bay Transportation partners with owner/operators to meet the needs of companies and clients across the country. We also offer benefits to owner/operators that choose to work with us. Some of those benefits include:
- 100% Payment on Approved Tolls
- Fuel Discounts
- 2500-3300 Miles/Week
- Mileage Pay and Fuel Surcharge
We abide by the PC Miler Practical Miles system when paying our drivers. Based on a 5’3″ trailer length and 13’6″ clearances, the practical mile system allows drivers to take the more time efficient and more desirable route to deliver goods.
With the support of Bay & Bay Transportation, you’ll have the tools and advantages to build a successful owner/operator business. There are a variety of companies that offer truck driving jobs in Minnesota, but few offer the benefits and advantages that we do. If you’d like to join the Bay & Bay Transportation family, please don’t hesitate to apply online or email [email protected] for more information.
