THREE WAYS OUR DRIVERS SAVE ON FUEL EXPENSE

Our owner operators benefit from fuel surcharge paid on ALL MILES (loaded and deadhead), a national fuel discount program that rivals the industry’s largest carriers’, and light dry-van loads that average 15,000 – 25,000 lbs.

Fuel Surcharge

We pay fuel surcharge on all dispatched miles (loaded and deadhead), and our fuel surcharge increases faster than most (every $.05 instead of every $.10 like most carriers). We also pay a higher fuel surcharge amount than others. See the examples below.

Fuel Surcharge Examples
Annual National
Fuel Cost Average
Fuel Surcharge 2,500 miles Fuel Surcharge 115,000 miles
2016 = $2.30/gallon = $475 = $21,850
2015 = $2.71/gallon = $650 = $29,900
2014 = $3.82/gallon = $1,125 = $51,750


Fuel Discount Program

Our drivers enjoy a fuel discount program with reductions comparable or better than large fleet carriers. They can easily see an average savings at the pump of $50 - $85 per fill up, all depending on the size of their fuel tank and how much they are putting in. In some cases, they see discounts as high as $200+ on a single fill up​! This amounts to huge savings in operational cost​.

Fuel Discount Examples (estimated)
Annual National Fuel Discount Average 2,500 miles 115,000 miles Savings on 150 gallons Savings on 250 gallons
2016 = $.29/gallon = $121 = $5,558 = $43.50 = $72.50
2015 = $.34/gallon = $142 = $6,517 = $51 = $85
2014 = $.28/gallon = $117 = $5,367 = $42 = $70

Fuel Saving Light Loads

Our typical freight is dry-van shipments averaging between 15,000 - 25,000 pounds, saving our drivers fuel and wear and tear on their equipment. Typical commodities in the Commercial Truckload Division are retail fixtures, furniture, electronics, household goods (shipped from agent to agent), and trade show exhibits/items. Special Products Division transports truckload and LTL high-value commodities that often require special handling but do not weigh in heavy. Typical commodities include high-value products, electronics, delicate equipment, store fixtures, and trade show exhibits/items.
