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!

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.

I have been with General Transport for a bit over 6 months and have found it an excellent place to work. As an owner/operator I am continuously impressed by the competence and ability of dispatch. They go over the top to get me loads that work for me. I have a challenging home situation (disabled family member) and this is by far the best company I have worked for!

I have been with GT for 6 months and am very happy with my decision to join the family as Director of Recruiting. I asked a LOT of questions and had several conversations to be sure I was making a good decision for my career future - I have witnessed exactly what I was presented. The Owner is honest, the staff is experienced and work very well as a team. The drivers are happy and seem to enjoy what they do. While we all know that trucks all come with issues - the maintenance team do an... amazing job at keeping the trucks and trailers well maintained. The lanes are as advertised and operations knows what they are doing. The level of respect makes me very happy to be part of the team, I feel appreciated and really enjoy working for a company that has reasonable expectations and respects the opinions of the staff. I am looking forward to a long and satisfying career!!read more

FAQ

Heres some more reasons why:

Owner Operators

General Transport was founded in 1984 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. 

Currently, we have owner-operator to run the triangle of Ohio, Texas and Floria.:

  • Run our Triangle
  • 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.
