In 2008 Cory Johnson started as a small independent business (Drive This Truck LLC) operating under another larger carriers authority. We have since branched out into our own authority (DTT Transport) and have our own shop located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. We have multiple trucks and reefer trailers.
We are hiring company drivers, lease operators, and owner-operators. Our company drivers have the opportunity to earn 50% of the rate pay after expenses while driving our equipment. If that doesn’t satisfy drivers, we also offer a lease to own with no money down and no balloon payment at the end. Our lease operators earn 80% of revenue and no hidden trailer payments or outrageous tire fund. We are always looking to hire owner operators with power only or with their own trailers. Owner Operators earn 80% of revenue, but if you come in with your own trailer you can earn 88% of the revenue. We offer layover and detention pay as well. Drivers have the overall say in the loads and the direction they choose to run. Just to get started we guarantee out drivers a weekly paycheck for the first 4 weeks, this allows them to get acclimated with us.
We offer fully loaded trucks with refrigerators, microwaves, and all the necessary tools for the job. Our drivers have 24hr access to our shop in Fort Wayne, Indiana and the use of our facilities, this includes free laundry, showers, kitchenette and all the tools and fluids necessary to keep their trucks running great. We also have a mechanic on staff to keep repair labor prices down and supply parts at our wholesale cost.
The hardest part of over the road driving is knowing that you have to leave home for long periods of time with only a few days off. We have created a family type approach, allowing the opportunity for our drivers to take their time off as they choose when and where ever they would like.
