Information for Prospective Company Drivers
Steelman Transportation invites you to join our team as a company driver. In the Spring of 2014, after much review and research, Steelman decided to once again operate a company fleet for a number of reasons. Primarily, those reasons were:
- Customer freight volumes were through the roof and we needed trucks.
- There are a lot of safe, professional drivers who simply do not want to own a truck. They are looking for a quality carrier to drive for during their carrier.
- To educate those drivers who would like to be Independent Contractors but are not exactly sure what all is involved in being a business owner.
As a Steelman company driver, you will have the opportunity to earn $66,000 or more per year.
