Whether you're brand-new to the expedite trucking industry, or a veteran owner-operator, Tri-State Expedited Service Inc. could represent the opportunity you're looking for.

Based in Millbury, Ohio, Tri-State operates throughout the continental United States as well as Canada. The company provides direct customer-to-customer, coast-to-coast service for a broad customer base with an on-time delivery record of well over 99 percent.

As the largest family-owned and operated expeditor in the industry, Tri-State has more than 40 years of expedited experience.

The key to the company's success, of course, is its owner-operator partners and as its business volume expands, Tri-State is looking for more quality owner-operators with straight trucks and tractors for both truckload and expedite. Team driver positions also are available.

Among the highlights of Tri-State's package for owner-operators are:

* Comdata

* 65% of revenue on all runs for Cargo Vans and Straight Trucks

* Flat rate for Tractors in Truckload and Expedite

* CabCard

*Instant Sign-on Bonus for Straight Trucks and Tractor-Trailers

*Weekly settlements

*Paperless fuel taxes

*100% of the FSC, 100% of the time

Owner-operators who partner with Tri-State are trained in the company's
business methods during a three-day orientation.

Are you an owner-operator with a good driving and safety background,
good business sense, a focus on customer service and a team attitude? If
so, Tri-State could be the right fit for you.

    Tom Stiles-=|=-I'd love to find a job as a straight truck driver for an owner.

    I hold an Indiana Class B CDL w/ air brakes but no Haz-Mat endorsment. My driving/safety record is absolutely spotless. I have never had a chargeable collision nor have I ever received a moving violation from ANY law enforcement officer.

    Other than livery service type vehicles my driving experience has been in straight trucks and 40' to 45' Charter coaches. Thank you very much.
