    Hey guys,

    My name is Turner and I work with a team of three other individuals in the safety department at Trans-Continental Systems. Below is an ad that I use for most things that briefly explains what our company has to offer. Normally I leave it there but this forum also seems like the place to simply lay out the fact that TCS is a decent sized company that still manages to maintain great relations throughout the whole fleet. I know there are a lot of options for an operator to choose from as far as transportation types and companies go which tends to be a bit overwhelming but if you have a bit of time one day on your thirty minute break or while shutting down for the day I would love to have a phone conversation. Ads only go so far and only list so much, let me and my co-workers fully explain to you how TCS operates and what we have to offer both company and owner operators.

    Regards,
    Turner Seal

    An additional benefit TCS is excited to add to our package is the Incentive Bonus. The Incentive Bonus is $50.00 added onto your settlement each week when you do 5+ round turns. The whole intent of the bonus was simply extra money on top of our over all package to give operators options for health insurance. Please feel free to give any of us a call in order to discuss a little bit more about the company and what we have to offer you!

    Looking for owner operators and company operators in Louisville, Toledo, Cincinnati, Chicago and Indianapolis regions.

    TCS is happy to announce the addition of some brand new 2015 Frieghtliner Coronado Glider kits to the fleet. We've heard great things about these mods and wanted to give it a go for ourselves, so far a very positive response from all of the operators testing them out. Just one more way TCS is committed to obtaining the best equipment for our operators and how we lean on their feedback.

    Like home time? So do we. Here at TCS we realize that making money is all good and fine but being home to sleep in the bed you are paying for has a value all on its own. We have been blessed enough to obtain great lanes back and forth to Chicago which allows our operators in Louisville, Toledo, Chicago and Indianapolis to make it home a lot more than you typically see in the industry. Cincinnati has slightly less home time at the moment but it will only go up and our "less" is still more than most!

    Oh my, just noticed I did not include full information!

    Our package changes at times according to things like FSC for Owner Operators but as of 08/26/2014 our current is:

    Company Operators: Up to $0.41 per mile
    Owner Operators: Up to $1.51 per mile

    In reality those numbers shift a tiny bit because they both include a flat rate $50.00 bonus for running 5 round trips. This means if you do less miles your per mile will be slightly higher and if you do more your per mile will be slightly less only because it is $50.00 divided by your total miles. The Owner Operator pay is also with the average savings from our fuel discount program which I did at an average of 5.5 MPG, fueling 5 times a week and running 2850 miles. The discount program is $0.20 off per gallon and waived service fees at Pilot/Flying J.

    Basically what it comes down to is that here at TCS we try to be as transparent as possible. We have fantastic lanes, a pretty great pay package and awesome home time. If you have any questions you want to ask please feel free to give us a call, we are more than happy to explain what we have to offer.

    @limahhouston Great question, what we have is a recently added addition to our benefit package. As of the beginning of July we provide $50.00 a week to operators who manage five round trips a week, basically one turn Monday-Friday. This comes down to a $200.00 a month raise for every operator in the fleet in order to help offset the cost of a private insurance. We have been looking at our options for awhile and knew we had to do something to help, this is what made the most sense at the end of the day.

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to keep everyone informed on the happenings over at TCS. We are in the process of filling the last of our company trucks with some great candidates, I want to thank everyone who applied but I do want to make sure it is known that we only operate Midwest regional and locally in Los Angeles, we had a few applicants from the east coast which were funny conversations!

    As things stand we are still able to fit more operators into our current lanes as they are meaning if any very qualified company applicants give us a call we take very serious consideration even if it means expanding the fleet a bit more. Owner Operators are of course always welcome to give us a call to discuss the specifics about our lanes, freight, home time and package.

    Looking forward to getting some more calls, have a great Monday guys!

    A few more units have been added to the fleet which once again opens us up to accepting applications around the Louisville, Indianapolis, Chicago, Toledo and Cincinnati areas. I know some of you applied in the recent past when we no longer had openings, we are currently reaching out to you but I wanted to get the word out here again. We are a company that has been in the industry for quite awhile with consistent lanes, great home time and a weekly paycheck that helps us all provide for our families.

    If you have any questions do not hesitate to give us a call and get more specifics, we'd love to have a conversation.

    Trans-Continental Systems, Inc. is still open to applications from operators in the midwest cities that we service. We have the freight in our existing lanes that would support nuermous O/O or Company operators for 3,000+ miles per week, 5 days a week. Give us a call if you would like more information or to ask us specific questions about the run.

    Looking for a good, stable company? Tired of being a number with your current outfit and want to have a single dispatcher who takes care of you? Trans-Continental Systems, Inc. is looking for the best operators in the midwest region. We have strong accounts and lanes that let all of our operators work 5+ days a week and be home most nights. We have a commitment not just to our customers but to our fleet as well to provide the best possible service. Without you no one brings home a pay check to take care of their family and we recognize that. Call us if you have any questions you want to go over, our safety team is waiting by the phone.

    We had a great turn out in applicants again and I want to thank everyone who applied. We only had a few positions open unfortunately but please feel free to follow up any time to check on your status.

    We still have plenty of room to fit in Owner Operators. As always we have a competitive package that allows you to get home during the week and see the family while still bringing home the pay check you need to actually take care of them. Please feel free to give us a call and ask any questions you might have, 513-769-4774.
