Heres some more reasons why:

Owner Operators

General Transport was founded in 1985 and is based in Akron, Ohio, in the heart of transportation industry. We are a truckload dry van, no touch general freight carrier, relying on our owner operator fleet to provide quality service to our many customers.

It goes without saying that owner operators are a huge part of our business. For years, we have partnered with independent drivers. They handle much of our load, delivering freight in countless areas safely and efficiently. Our owner-operators enjoy a clear job description that indicates their responsibilities.

Currently, we have owner-operator jobs open in Akron, OH, which includes the following tasks:

  • Acquire all necessary requirements, like a commercial driver’s license and insurance for the truck
  • Work with the General Transport team to determine the loads that the driver would haul
  • Pick-up and deliver cargo to their destination using the driver’s truck
  • Follow the right schedule and the right destination for each cargo
  • Follow traffic laws and all the regulations set by the Department of Transportation
  • Stick with the travel instructions provided by the General Transport team
  • Report to the General Transport team after every route
  • Take charge of the maintenance and inspection of the truck to ensure good working conditions

Owner operators run a very distinct triangle service area. Customer locations are in Ohio, Eastern Texas and Central Florida. These hauls provide consistent points for loading and unloading along consistent freight lanes. Company regional drivers operate within a 500 to 600-mile radius of Akron, OH traveling to NC, SC, GA, IN, VA, TN, KY and back to Ohio. There is no travel to the east coast or Canada.
