Drivers love working for General Transport. Drive In Comfort and Safety with our Dedicated Truckload Fleet

Our logistics experts work with our customers to understand the challenges of their supply chain and design a program for those challenges.

Our brokerage division is in constant communication with our carriers and has up-to-date status information on each and every load.

We believe in providing our customers with the highest quality drivers powered by the best and most reliable equipment in the industry.

We are uncompromised in our commitment to the health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, customers, community, and general public. General Transport believes safety is the responsibility of all employees, from upper management to the individual worker.

Safety is priority #1

We believe safety is best practiced by promoting safety with a positive attitude and giving continual training. General Transport is committed to setting a new standard for our industry and being one of the most rewarding places to work for the benefit of all of our employees.

From the moment we begin recruiting a driver, we start instilling our safety culture. Often times, our staff will end a phone call with a driver with “stay safe”. Sometimes a small reminder to make safe choices can make all the difference. We welcome all new drivers with a thorough orientation at the Akron, Ohio terminal.

QUALITY UNSURPASSED

If a driver is in need of help or assistance, we provide a contact 24/7. The safety department will often have dispatch route drivers into the terminal to have contact with the drivers. Further coaching’s, training, remedial training, or any other items needing to be address can be done one on one.

General Transport is equipped with electronic logging devices. This allows Safety to track and monitor drivers to ensure they are compliant for HOS and monitor their driving skills and techniques. By closely monitoring driving trends and CSA scores, it helps General Transport safety team coach and train drivers to decrease incidents and improve safety performance.

Respectfully,
Karly Becker
Director of Safety

We are a family company you can trust for a solution to all your logistics needs.

Driver

I chose to drive for General Transport because I’ve drove for other companies, and for me – this is the BEST company out there. I will stay here “Forever”. The employees at General Transport are my friends and family – they treat me very well. If anyone makes a mistake, they fix it and make things right – they are honest people!

Driver

I have worked with a lot of companies in 15 years but non like General Transport. In March of 2017 I started to work with General Transport, and my money was always there consistent loads and no downtime. In Novermber of 2017 I left – WOW was that a mistake. The first 4 months I worked with 3 different companies that offered this owner operator money miles and consistency and when it was all said and done – I was in so much debt because these companies ere playing with my money and a lot of waiting for loads. I called General Transport to return – Now, I’m almost out of my debt – in less than 2 months since returning. They also treat you like family, they care about their drivers and owner operators. I’m back and happy… I won’t be leaving General Transport again. This is my home.
