Why Transport America
- Technology + Safety
WHY TRANSPORT AMERICA
It starts with a philosophy of driver respect and engagement, and the belief that the dedicated, hard-working men and women behind the wheel deserve more. More opportunity. More autonomy. More appreciation. And, perhaps most importantly, more time at home. This trucking company was built from the pavement up around this driver-first mission. With new equipment, better pay, flexible routes and the best support in the industry, we're empowering drivers to make smart choices in the name of safety, not profit. In an industry that's been plagued for too long by broken promises and misinformation, this much is clear: change is here, and it began with the great men and women who are driving this company in the right direction.
Driving a truck isn’t just a job, it’s a lifestyle. Although the drivers we’re looking for love life on the road, they also have a place they call home. That’s why at Transport America, we offer a ton of route choices, and we stick to those routes like clockwork. So when our drivers say they’ll be home on Friday, their families can count on it.

Technology + Safety
The ones who make the call if it’s safe to drive should be behind the wheel, not behind a desk. That’s why we empower our drivers to make the call when it’s safe to drive in bad weather, and when it’s not. What proof do we need that it’s time to pull over? Nothing but our driver’s word.
Stay Connected Even Outside of the Cab with Our Mobile App
Transport America offers its driver a mobile app for iOS & Android that allows drivers to stay connected to their business without needing to be inside their cab. Grab a coffee, enjoy your lunch and spend time with the family while never missing an important update or news about your upcoming loads.
Never Waste Time Finding A Trailer
Our drivers told us that time spent tracking trailers was time wasted. We listened and have installed satellite trailer tracking in our fleet. This allows drivers to know the exact location of their loads at all times.
