Changing the Public Image of the American Trucker

Changing the Public Image of the American Trucker

Here’s how the Drive Logistics team helps truckers flip the narrative

During the height of the trucking industry in the 1970’s, truckers were held in a position of reverence in the United States. The modern-day cowboys of the pavement, truckers were seen as lone wolves with the unique job of transporting essential goods coast to coast while experiencing the indescribable views of the American countryside.

In the last twenty to thirty years the societal image of the American trucker has taken a hit for reasons this blog will never be able to completely capture. Regardless, the Drive Logistics team believes the country’s truckers deserve the utmost respect and everyone involved with Drive works to provide truckers with the tools to be the best trucker owner operator they can be.

Part of that mission is repairing the societal image of truckers. At Drive Logistics we are invested in empowering America’s truckers and providing them the tools to reach their entrepreneurial goals. ‘Drive’ offers comprehensive business solutions for truckers who want to become owner operators, but need support with the day-to-day of starting and running a successful trucking business.

“Drive Logistics strives to identify and support truckers who want to own and operate their own business in a professional manner,” Founder Michael O’Leary said.

Here’s how Drive is helping truckers crush the stereotype!

Innovative Technology

The revolutionary myDrive mobile application is an integral part of what makes Drive Logistics’ trucker centric mission, possible. The proprietary app puts owner operators in control of the freight they move and offers premium guidance to help truckers consistently book freight at higher than market rates.

With the handy app, enrolled owner operators will have access to a load board so they can move the freight when they want, where they want, when they want.

Also with the app, truckers can communicate with their dedicated capacity consultant for any questions they have surrounding a load. With the push of a button, truckers will connect to their expertly trained capacity consultant for assistance.

Operational Assistance

For anything that happens out there on the road from mechanical issues to broker negotiations, the Drive Logistics team is there to help. Capacity consultants are dedicated personnel assigned to support our owner operator clientele with looking for loads, maximizing their income, market management and so much more.

With a limited number of truckers assigned to each consultant, the Drive team can build relationships with each trucker to provide a one-of-a-kind experience with a personal touch. Our consultants can help owner operators improve their market knowledge and how they interact with brokers, shippers and receivers.

24/7 Healthcare with a Click

As a part of our company’s commitment to staying healthy, Drive Logistics has implemented the RealTruckers Health program in partnership with NaviGo Health. This valuable benefit is offered free of charge to Drive Logistics’ workforce, its owner operator clients and their dependents.

With the RealTruckers Health program, the company’s truckers have 24/7 access to telemedicine resources. The health program also provides access to healthcare for minor medical conditions, treatment of colds, repository infections, viruses and dermatology issues. If in-person care is needed for x-rays, treatments, or labs, members can add a Clinical Access Voucher.
