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:

  1. Customer freight volumes were through the roof and we needed trucks.
  2. 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.
  3. To allow our Independent Contractors the time off they need and desire.
  4. 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.
