The National Transportation Institute sponsors its coveted Top Pay Carrier designation. To earn this elite award a carrier must qualify in three critical categories that together make professional driving a rewarding and secure career choice. The categories are top tier pay, health and retirement benefits and carrier stability.

Carriers that are awarded the Top Pay Carrier certification from The National Transportation Institute have passed a rigorous, three part qualification process. Each of these three areas is a critical component to the long-term financial success, job security, retirement income, and health and wellness coverage that professional drivers deserve for their families and themselves. These elements are reviewed annually to assure that each carrier listed is worthy of the designation Top Pay Carrier.

“Our success is based on safety, service and efficiency, all of which depends on our drivers. We feel that our drivers are the best in the industry and we in turn constantly strive to offer the best pay, equipment, and quality of life to our drivers,” said Rene Beacom, President.
