ABOUT GENERAL TRANSPORT
General Transport was founded in 1985 and is based in Akron, Ohio, in the heart of transportation industry. We are a dry van, truckload carrier, relying on our owner operator fleet and Akron based company drivers to provide quality service to our many customers. General Transport understands that clear communication and honesty is the key to success.
We all know how confusing it can be to compare pay packages from one company to the next. My advice is to look at “The “Take Home Pay”. The bottom line is that you need enough pay to profitably operate and grow your business as an owner operator and to successfully provide for yourself and your family.
General Transport has two separate and distinct operations. The first is for Ohio based company drivers living within a 100 mile radius of Akron, Ohio. The average length of haul in this regional operation is between 300-600 miles, allowing company drivers to be home every weekend. There is no travel to the east coast or Canadian.
The company owner operator fleet handles the long haul freight. Owner operators run a very distinct triangle service area. Customer locations are in Ohio, eastern Texas and Central Florida. These hauls provide consistent points for loading and unloading along consistent freight lanes.
