    MSR Transport Services, Inc. is a Veteran owned and operated company looking to hire an established team with HAZMAT endorsement. The tractor we have open for immediate seating is a 2016 Freightliner Cascadia and is already leased onto FedEx Custom Critical and hooked to a Great Dane FedEx owned temperature controlled trailer.

    Tractor has: refrigerator, microwave, double bunk, Freightliner ParkSmart system, 2500 watt inverter, 24" flat screen TV with company paid EpicVue In-Motion Satellite TV w/DVR and NFL package, 10 speed transmission, PrePass Plus, PikePass, SunPass, Fleet One fuel cards for each driver, hard hats, safety vests ... and we provide 4 company polos and 2 pairs of work pants for each driver.

    Company: MSR Transport Services, Inc.
    phone: 330.571.9502
    Provide in the email: CDL class and endorsements, Name, contact information, quick history of driving experience
    Open Positions: 1 tractor signed on with FedEx Custom Critical

    The drivers will be moving expedited freight, temperature controlled freight, and other high value products. There is no forced dispatch, and the truck stays with the team. Tractor earns $1.00 a mile deadhead miles and between $1.50 to $1.75 per loaded mile. Team earns a starting percentage of 40% of the gross income of the tractor. That means empty authorized deadhead miles start at .40 cpm to the team, loaded miles are between .60 and .70 cpm to the team. We also split the accessorials like detention, hazmat pay, driver secure program, etc. We increase percentage based on additional endorsements and credentials, like TWIC, passport, and DoD clearance. Our current drivers average between $1,100 and $1,300 each per week.

    WG TVAL, HAZMAT - 40% of line haul & accessorials (.60 to .70 cents to the team per loaded mile, .40 cents per deadhead mile) ... 100% of labor or inside pickup/delivery paid to drivers, 60% of the detention is paid to the drivers, 40% of all other accessorials are paid to the drivers. If both drivers submit for their DoD clearance and obtain it (FedEx pays for this), we take the team up to 45% of the gross truck revenue (minus fuel and tolls).

    We have a bonus program as well for driver referrals, monthly revenue, safety, DOT inspections, and end of the year.

    The company is owned by three Veteran officers of the Ohio Army National Guard and all three are transportation officers and have commanded companies of 190+ drivers. One is still in the Ohio Army National Guard, one is still in the US Army Reserves. We currently have 7 tractors ... 4 at FedEx Custom Critical, 2 at Panther Premium Logistics, and 1 at Forward Air TLX. Eight of our 11 drivers are Veterans.

    Hiring nationwide, no geographical requirements. Other requirements include:
    Class A CDL w/ 6 months tractor-trailer experience in 2 years or 1 year in 5 years
    HAZMAT Endorsement

    Veterans and current Guard/Reserve Soldiers - inquire with us about the CDL Waiver Exemption program if you were/are a truck driver in the service and we can help you navigate the paperwork if you need it.

    Thank you.

    Yes - quite serious. In the expedite industry, most owners only split the detention 40% to the team, we are above the industry standard. There are still operating costs while the truck is detained and for our drivers, detention gets paid to sit with loads even over weekends ... had a load last week pay the truck $600 detention for 8 hours ... driver team made $360 in 8 hours while our fuel in the APU and reefer burned away ... I would say that is more than fair.
