18 Wheels of Justice Presents - Trucking Legends

Transport America 

1984 - Eagan, MN. Born amid the turmoil and confusion of new trucking legislation implementing the deregulation of truckload carriers, James Aronson started a new company, a rising star, which emerged to fill a desperate need in the trucking industry for service, technology, and unparalleled customer service.

Throughout the last 27 plus years, Transport America (TA) has emerged a clear leader in our industry. The company went public in 1994 and did a couple acquisitions in the late 90s. Unfortunately Mr. Aronson passed away in 1999, but his vision and dedication to driver’s and operators continues to live on today at Transport America. This dedication to his drivers shows in the opportunities and programs available to every driver at TA.

The leadership team has the influence and ability to operate a world class organization and Scott Arves is the CEO to lead this organization into the future. Transport America became a bright light in the otherwise ordinary field of medium and large trucking companies. A mid-sized carrier with old-world values and commitment applied to their drivers and owner operators in our modern world. 

The latest technology combined with a streamlined, efficient operations department that creates the agility to make decisions and changes as needed to meet the commitments made to their drivers and owner operators. Transport America is one of the largest carriers in America for a reason, they deliver. They topped the Transport Topics list at #1 in Revenue Growth for 2012, yes, number one. Transport America delivers to its drivers through great processes, excellent leadership, and state of the art technology. This makes them more agile and personable than even the smallest carrier, but with unrivaled options for drivers and financial muscle behind them.

Giving drivers a choice is the key at Transport America, come for a job, stay for a career. We know many things happen over the lifetime of an over the road driver. Marriage, Kids, the need to be home more often to take care of elderly parents, and so on... As your lifestyle changes, there is always opportunity within the six divisions at Transport America. We know changing jobs and moving to a new company is a difficult choice, there are many questions that can't be answered until after you are weeks, sometimes months, into a new company. And too often, when you realize it was a bad choice, there is a lot of time and money lost switching jobs. With all of these different driving opportunities, join hundreds of others who have found a true home and career at Transport America.

Transport America has it all - Lifestyle Fleets - (Available in several divisions). Recognizing that driver home time needs differ, Transport America developed the 7/7 and 14/7 fleets to provide drivers with extended home time options, along with a guaranteed TAH program.
• Under the 7/7 program, drivers are out for 7 days and then home for 7 days.
• Under the 14/7 program, drivers are out for 14 days and then home for 7 days.
As part of these programs, drivers share a tractor with one or two other drivers, meaning more home time for you and a more efficient use of equipment for the company, but the additional home time is well worth it.

Transport America Truth

As all drivers know, the biggest question mark when starting at a new company is the number of miles. Pay per mile doesn't pay the bills when you sit. It is miserable when you're away from home and not making money, unfortunately everybody has been there. TA focuses on miles, between their customer base and a company- wide desire to keep you rolling, this helps generate both more pay for you and more income for the company, so you are always making money. It's just common sense and Transport America delivers, day in, day out. Transport America understands this and it resonates loudly throughout the company.
• Pay: Transport America's pay is in the upper 5 percent of the truckload industry both from a per mile and W2 perspective. Transport America offers the fastest raises in the industry for solo and team OTR drivers. Students can reach top pay in as little as 5 years. Miles: Our people get miles. Pay is nothing without miles behind it. In a time when most carriers are down, Transport America is up over last year from both a total mileage and miles per driver standpoint. Freight, freight, freight, you want miles, TA works hard to get it for you.

• Open doors: Transport America Operations prefers face-to-face interaction. There are no barriers for drivers to speak to their Fleet Leader through. The Leadership Team and the CEO himself, answers the phone and enjoys talking with our people.

• Safety: Transport America values safety. The individuals who drive have been empowered to have the final say in whether or not it’s safe to drive. Transport America has one of the top CSA scores in the industry. As a CSA Safe Carrier you can feel secure knowing the they have safe equipment and understand the measurements and rules to help keep you in good standing with CSA. In some cases TA can help improve your score

• Technology: We invest heavily in technology. Voice mail for all drivers, new MCP200 Qualcomm that has navigation, internet, e-mail, in cab scanning, e-logging and text to speech, are all currently being installed on our equipment. Even Driver scorecards with accurate driver performance data is available. Knowing your driver score can give you peace of mind that you are on the right track and if not, allows you to make changes accordingly The company is also using On Guard and Roll Stability technology to ensure safe operations.
