Metro Parcel & Freight
â€œWeâ€™re a small company that wants to be a large company.â€
Thatâ€™s how Alexi Georges, controller for Metro Parcel & Freight, describes the organizationâ€™s plans for the future. To accomplish that goal, Metro Parcel & Freight needs some help â€” in the form of experienced, professional owner-operators to haul what the company hopes will be an ever-expanding amount of freight.
Metro Parcel and Freight, headquartered in Birmingham, MI, offers a variety of services to its customers, who include Detroitâ€™s â€˜Big Threeâ€™ automakers. The company and its owner-operators maintain a fleet of cargo vans, 18- and 24-foot straight trucks and tractor-trailers, all with GPS tracking, and can handle air freight, dedicated and expedited loads and less-than-truckload freight in addition to long hauls.
Ask Georges how many reliable owner-operators the company needs to work with, and the answer canâ€™t be quantified. â€œThe amount is unlimited,â€ he said. â€œRight now weâ€™ve got a ton of long-distance freight.â€
Georges said the owner-operators who work with Metro Parcel & Freight are paid a percentage of each load they haul as well as 100 percent of the fuel surcharge paid by shippers. Owner-operators who work with Metro Parcel & Freight pay no up-front sign-on costs. The company has a centralized dispatch system, 24 hours a day, 365 years. Owner-operators can expect low dead-head miles and 99 percent of the time, they wonâ€™t touch the freight. The company works to get owner-operators home on a regular basis, and settlements are paid weekly.
Asked what makes Metro Parcel & Freight an attractive option for owner-operators, Georges responded with an answer that makes sense. â€œNone of the owner-operators weâ€™ve hired have quit,â€ he said. â€œWeâ€™re hungry for success and honest in the way we do business. The owner of this company has a hands-on approach to running the operation, and is in daily contact with the drivers.â€
