What you need to know...
Do you have a sign on bonus?
YES WE DO!!! We pay $5000 for our team straight trucks.
Do I have to run under your authority?
Yes. You must run under our authority (including IFTA). We are currently working on a program to include owners with authority)
Do you have a plate program?
No. We are a Michigan based carrier and due to specific laws regarding commercial plates in Michigan we cannot offer a plate program at this time.
Do you have a lease-to-purchase program?
No. Sorry, we do not. but we can place you with a qualified fleet owner if you need a truck.
Do you provide insurance?
We provide insurance for the liability and cargo. You are responsible for your own bobtail/deadhead insurance.
What are your deductions and start up fees/costs?
We have NO upfront out of pocket costs to get you going. After you sign on you can expect one or more of the following weekly deductions: technology, occupational accident coverage, and escrow.
Do you hold back any settlements?
No we do not. We need a week to process everything, so we are technically a week behind. But we don’t hold anything extra. You work. You get paid. Simple.
Do I have to come to Michigan for orientation?
Yes you do. But we aren’t wasting any time. First, we need to make sure that you have a very thorough orientation process. We want to make sure you’re safe. You would also need to get your drug screen while in our area, and we need to placard your truck with Fusion Transportation placards. (at no additional cost to you). Drivers are typically dispatched straight out of orientation.
Is there a set schedule?
Our most successful owner operators “stay out” for 14 days at a time. This gives our dispatch team time and momentum to get a good run going for you. Ultimately the decision is yours.
Do you have a fuel program?
YES we do! We issue an EFS fuel card. Purchases are taken directly out of that week’s settlements. If you use the EFS card there are “at the pump,” discounts at popular truck stops around the country.
Do you pay tolls?
We do. We pay at least 50% of all your tolls. Teams we cover 100%.
What is your FSC at?
We have moved more to a flat rate system. As fuel goes down, your pay wont. If the price of fuel goes up, we are a small enough company to adjust the rate and we will bid our jobs based off the higher cost of fuel. We don't play the FSC game. We have been very successful using the flat rate system and our driver retention speaks for itself.
What is your deadhead program?
Per contract we will 100% of your deadhead miles. This is calculated using dispatch's last known delivery location for you. We have been averaging almost 90% of all miles as loaded versus deadhead. That's impressive!
How do you calculate miles?
We use PC MILLER practical miles.
Do you haul HAZMAT?
What is your service area?
We service all 48 states (no Canada or Mexico at this time). Our main delivery areas are Midwest, Southeast, East coast, and Northeast…
What should I bring to orientation?
Proof of bobtail/deadhead insurance
Long form medical card
Truck scale ticket
DOT vehicle annual inspection form
DOT driver medical card
A voided check for direct deposit purposes
A great attitude, willingness to work, and a smile!
REMEMBER.... You can get dispatched straight out of orientation! Please call if you have any additional questions! We can't wait to meet you.
