When are Paydays

Are every other Friday. Your payroll will be direct deposited into your account on Friday's between 10 am and Noon depending on when your bank downloads the deposit. We do not use trip packs since a regular postage stamp is a cheaper way to transfer documents.

What are all of the costs associated with your Company


Every Expedite Carrier has expenses associated with your unit. The amounts will vary from one expediting company to another. Our fixed costs are the lowest of any expedited carrier.

Permanent / fixed ongoing monthly cost - Only $231.00 a month.

  • Occupational Accident Insurance......$125.00 per month
  • Cargo Insurance ......$100.00 per month
  • Direct Deposit fee / each deposit ......$3.00


  • Cargo insurance deductible escrow (cide)...... $25.00 a week (up to $500.00 then stops coming out). This money remains yours and is returned to you in the event of termination. All competitor carriers have a $2500.00 or more (cide) escrow and normally remove from your settlements around $140.00 a week or more until you have reached their higher escrow.

See 90 Day Probation Period below for some fine print on these pay scales

How do you measure success or failure

If you can't manage to operate your business properly under out pay scale program and actually turn a profit, it could be from one or more of the following factors:

1) Mishandling of your business
2) Having excessive debt &/or interest causing financial strain
3) Perhaps you're lacking the skill to successfully run your own business &/or "mesh" with the lifestyle of an expediter

If you fail with us, it will most likely be in the first 90 days simply because you can not adapt to being an expediter. If you succeed and remain in our ranks after 90 days, it will most likely be because you know how to run a business, can tolerate the expediters lifestyle and being an OTR driver.

If you like driving and can handle OTR work, your success rate should be 100% with us. Our program is geared towards saving you money in terms of expense with us, your carrier and providing expedite loads in reasonable volume.

Tell me about your Company

We were established September 1963 in Melrose Park Illinois. Over 40 years in the freight business and 12 years in the expedited business.

As for our Expediters Union label: We operate on a platform of only what's a necessity. The majority of our profits from our expedited division goes into our technology platform and networking. The balance covers basic operating costs and administrative wages. We keep our operating costs low and we channel our core profits to our Owner Operators. We spend very little money on advertising and rely on our Owner Operators word of mouth and their units advertising.
