The rate of growth in the ground transportation industry is at levels not seen before. Many corporations desire the shipment of items throughout the United States quickly, and with few complications impacting the cargo safety or expected arrival. The web has no doubt led the list of influences resulting in this substantial growth. Because of these factors, Status Transportation truckers report this year has demonstrated a consistently increasing demand for freight services.
By supporting the independence of our roster of owner operators, we maintain your ability to have the freedom to pick which shipments are optimal for your business and schedule. We understand the locations you prefer, what your driving capacity is, how long you have been on the road, and how regularly you need to be on the road.
Why lease-on with Status Transportation?
Status trucking is not identical to other ground shipping companies. Although there is much that is the same, we believe we are different in some important ways. First, we were formed from the perspective of an owner operator. Our founder was in the driver’s seat for years and realized there should be opportunities for owner operators to maximize their business without losing their independence. In our unique approach, we work carefully with all our operators to generate maximum income and return on investment. Whether you own your truck outright or finance, you’ll be capable of generating a secure living if working with us.
Status Transportation is a logistics industry leader due to these important reasons:
- Small company scale allows for more devoted assistance to owner operators
As a smaller firm, we are better equipped to give personalized attention to owner operators. We are different than large trucking companies who may be more apt to view their drivers as a tiny factor in an immense web of identical working units. Status Transportation Corporation retains a smaller population of owner operators to lease on with us.
This results in the need for our team to dedicate their equipment for the purpose of moving freight for us. Their trucks, trailers, and flatbeds are the tools they bring to the job in order to transport cargo. In return, we enable them to enjoy a more fruitful environment due to the logistic support that results in better efficiency and income. As a side benefit, many Status Transportation truckers report that the job is simpler than it would be strictly on their own.
At Status Transportation, each driver has a committed freight coordinator. This individual works with the driver to maximize a weekly working schedule and route that make the best use of the time and resources (and loads) available. This feature translates into higher profits. Each load of freight and its final destination is chosen to maximize margin. Because of the robust relationships generated between dispatchers and drivers, the results are easily enhanced over a large company. We also invest in our owner operators, offering non-stop employee education opportunities, and benefits like pay advances and fuel cards.
- You decide your own work schedule
If you have purchased your own truck, you most likely wouldn’t desire to be in a forced dispatch situation. Many trucking operations will demand a minimum of working hours and will require their drivers to be on the road to fulfill that. They may also require them to drive to places that they may not prefer.
Status Transportation truckers report their desire to make these decisions on their own is high. The expectation of independence comes with the owner operator experience and is respected at Status Transportation. Of course, it is in all parties' best interest to maintain enough activity to earn a living—and pay one's expenses—and Status Transportation understands that, too.
Nevertheless, you’ll have more freedom to work in the way you wish than you would at a large, impersonal trucking company. Additionally, your devoted freight coordinator will assist your routing plan to maximize your efforts while on the road.
- Availability of repair and maintenance services
Eventually, your truck’s maintenance and repair schedule will become a reality. What you don’t want to do at that moment is wonder where you can have the work done. Time looking for the right repair and maintenance facility is more time spent off the road. Status Transportation is proud to say it is one of only a few transportation companies to offer a fully-equipped tractor trailer repair and maintenance facility to its team members.
Located just outside Atlanta, GA, our facility provides fast and affordable work on semis, trailers, and Power Modules. Our purpose is to get you returned to safe driving as rapidly as possible. We are also equipped to offer roadside assistance for trucks, buses, and trailers. If you’re concerned about the repair rates, we are comparably priced and can even offer financing options that will help you stay on budget with your weekly income to obligations.
- Flexible route selection
As an owner operator, the choice of how you get to a destination is yours, so long as it arrives on schedule. Naturally, maximizing your profit is a goal for you and Status Transportation, and as such, we would not recommend taking inefficient routes as a routine practice.
Whether you drive regional or distant cargos runs, our well-trained dispatchers will work carefully with you, optimizing your time spent on the road. Status Transportation Corp. focuses its efforts on customized scheduling for each driver, primarily based on the current freight that is in need of transport.
The benefit of working with Status Trucks
As a transportation company, Status Transportation wouldn’t be as successful as it has been without the dedicated group of owner operators we have. We recognize the work they do, the product volume they move and their daily commitment to safety.
For these reasons, we devote a good deal of our resources towards assisting owner operators and their goals. Because you purchased your own truck and equipment, we aspire to be a supporter of successful business operations—like yours!
It appears clear that Status Transportation truckers report a favorable opinion of the added benefits we offer when leasing-on here.
- Financing options
If you are in need of new equipment or expensive replacement parts, we are there to support you. We provide a one hundred percent tax-deductible financing alternative that allows you to buy a new trailer, tractor, or parts. By offering this, we help our team of owner operators become fully independent and most importantly, profitable. When your equipment is fully operational, freight is moved on time to its destination. We label this a win-win situation.
- Freight that is easy to work with
After hours of driving, the least enjoyable task one can imagine doing is detailed reporting, paperwork, scheduling of inspections and other minutiae. Status Transportation handles many business tasks for you, permitting you to focus on tomorrow’s load. The time you save by having us do that work can translate into one extra trip or a more favorable destination that matches your needs better.
- Sustainable profits
Owner operators who work with us can enjoy regular profits due to our generous rates. If you have your own tractor, our pay-out is 75% of gross ($50 per week for the trailer). Tractor and trailer owners get 85% of gross income (all at no insurance cost).
Our owner operators earn a good living. As much as $7500 per week doing both regional and long runs. Those who work fewer hours make roughly an average of $4000 a week.
To assist you further in keeping costs under control, we issue gasoline cards that insulate you from varying fuel prices on the road.
